Community Outreach

Members of the Cathedral’s Outreach Committee actively participate in outreach into the community through a variety of ministries.

Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka ʻAina I Ka Pono, “The Life of the Land is perpetuated in Righteousness” is the motto of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi that was bequeathed to all by King Kamehameha III. It underlies the spirit of aloha and reinforces our mission to do good in the world in the name of Christ.
