2019 Schedule of Ali‘i Sundays and Evensongs released 2019 Schedule of Ali‘i Sundays and Evensongs releasedThe Cathedral has released its schedule of Ali‘i Sunday services and Evensongs.

They donated the land on which it stands, and Queen Emma personally supervised the building of the Cathedral edifice. On each of the Ali‘i Sundays the Hawaiian Royal Societies and other ahahui (Hawaiian clubs) join us for the 8:00 am Hawaiian service, and the front pews are reserved for them. A special reception follows. Their processions in and out add an extra note of pageantry to the Hawaiian service. More…
