The Cathedral is now open to worship, under stringent conditions to prevent any further spread of the corona virus. Services in the Cathedral resumed the weekend of May 30/31, and continue with the following schedule:
- Vigil Eucharist, Saturdays at 5:30 pm with Fr. Moki Hino presiding and preaching
- Holy Communion Rite I Sundays at 7:00 am, with Fr. Keleawe Hee presiding and preaching
- Holy Communion Rite II, Hawaiian Service, Sundays at 8:00 am with Fr. Keleawe Hee presiding and preaching
- Holy Communion Rite II, Sundays at 10:00 am (note new time!) with Fr. Moki Hino presiding and preaching. This service will be streamed live on Facebook. A Facebook account is not required to view it.
Holy Communion will be with bread (wafers) only.
All attendees must wear a mask throughout the service. Hand sanitizer will be available at all entrances. Social distancing will be enforced: each pew is marked with an X, and can accommodate one person or family unit living together, seated where the X indicates (i.e., spaced horizontally in the rows, one individual or family per row). We estimate that using this spacing the Cathedral can accommodate ~70 worshipers. If necessary, ushers can add seats in the narthex. A diagram of the nave seating is here.
There will be a calabash offering.
There will be no choir, and no congregational singing for the foreseeable future. Epidemiologists have determined that an infected singer can expel viruses vigorously, up to 16′!
We welcome you back, and are grateful for your following the guidelines for everyone’s safety.
