Message from Fr. Moki, March 27, 2019

Dear Cathedral Ohana:

This has been quite the week for the Cathedral. Before I report on that, I would like to take a moment to say that on Wednesday evening when the Good Samaritan search boats came in that were looking for Matthew Moribe, I managed to carve out three or four minutes to stand on the pier after the boats came in and to look at the sunset over Diamond Head, which was absolutely beautiful that evening.

As I stood there and looked out at the ocean and the horizon, I said a short prayer for Matthew and then was given the grace of feeling an overwhelming sense of the presence of God. And it gave me the assurance that I needed to know that God is in the midst of Glen and Sandy and their family and for that I am very grateful.

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
I am so proud of the Cathedral and the way that we all worked together to pull off a wonderful and meaningful Sunday Eucharist with the Presiding Bishop. We also had a very intellectually stimulating talk story session between the Presiding Bishop and Barbara Tanabe on Sunday evening. Thanks to the Peggy Kai Fund, we were able to help implement the evening session and both the Eucharist and the talk story available to view on the diocesan website. I am just so grateful to the many hands who made this possible and successful.

March Chapter Meeting
The Cathedral Chapter met yesterday evening and approved the minutes of the February meeting as well as the financial statements and Treasurer’s report. They are posted here for your review and ready reference.

Benedictine Work Day
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, April 13 (not April 6!) for a Benedictine work day at the Cathedral. More information will be coming out on the workday and we would like to culminate it with a Eucharist in the cathedral sanctuary at 5:30 PM.

Holy Week & Easter
Please remember that we have a full slate of worship offerings for holy week and Easter, beginning with the Liturgy of the Palms on Palm Sunday. The worship schedule is given here.
