Fourth Sunday in Lent
Gracious Father, whose blessed Son Jesus Christ came down
from heaven to be the true bread which gives life to the world:  Evermore give us this bread, that he may live in us, and we in  him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one  God, now and for ever.  Amen.

She's Off! 
Castro Pasalo on Delegation to United Nations Commission on the Status of Women Meeting
Our very own Rev. Annalise Castro Pasalo, was named by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry as a delegate to attend the 62nd session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW), taking place in New York City, March 12-23, 2018.  

As of this writing, Rev. Annalise was on her way to the meeting.  Please keep her in your prayers as she takes part in nearly two weeks of meetings, worship, advocacy, training and visitation to permanent missions at the United Nations.   You can follow her journey through her blog page HERE that will be active once she arrives, as well as posts on the diocesan Facebook page

To learn more about UNCSW, visit their website HERE, and to read a recent article about the delegation from Public Affairs of the Episcopal Church, click HERE.
This Sunday!
Memorial Plaque Dedication at The Cathedral

In the Cathedral of St. Andrew, Honolulu, memorial plaques honoring the late Bishops who have served in Hawai'i are installed in the ambulatory behind the High Altar.   The memorial plaques for Bishop Edmond Browning and Bishop Richard Chang have been installed and will be dedicated together at Evensong on Sunday, March 11, 2018, at 5:30 PM.   This date also happens to be Bishop Browning's birthday! The plaques have been mounted together to reflect the close working relationship the two had in life. All are invited to this special service honoring these two beloved Bishops. 
The following is a message from Fr. Sandy who selflessly donated his kidney to our Treasurer Peter Pereira at the end of January.

Update on The Rev. Cn. Alexander "Sandy" Graham and Peter Pereira
I first would like to thank all of you who have been holding Peter and me in your prayers and for the cards and notes of encouragement! It is humbling to be connected to such a community of love and concern.

I asked Peter what I might share with you all, and he reports that the kidney is functioning really well, and that his challenges now come mostly from side effects related to the immunosuppressant drugs (fluctuating blood pressure, low red blood cells and hemoglobin) and from having to watch sugar and overall diet. He reports that he is sleeping much better.

Personally, I am mostly back in the office. I still have some physical restrictions for a set time (no lifting anything over ten pounds yet, I'm not back to biking into the office, and I'm not allowed to immerse in water/swim in the ocean yet!) and occasionally I wear out as my energy lags before the end of the day, all of which I understand is completely normal. The surgeon is confident enough in my recovery that I don't have another appointment with him until July.

Again, MAHALO for all of your support and your prayers.

March For Our Lives on March 24
Submit names for prayer by March 15!

The Bishop has received word that several members from various congregations in the Diocese will be attending the "March For Our Lives" event in Washington DC, on Saturday, March 24, 2018.   Please submit the names of those from the Episcopal Church in Hawai'i that are attending the march, so that we can share their names throughout the Diocese and pray for them. 

We would also appreciate photos and stories from participants after the march to share in the Diocesan E-Chronicle. This is a witness that we need to share.  Photos and stories from local marches are also welcome.

Please send the names as soon as possible or no later Thursday, March 15, so that a list can be compiled and distributed before March 18 Sunday services. Send names, and follow-up photos and stories to news@episcopalhawaii.org.
From the Strategic Planning Manager, the Rev.Cn. Kate Cullinane:

Hurry! Deadline is Friday, March 16
Be a Part of the Strategic Plan Design Teams

Could this be you?
The Diocese of Hawai'i is encouraging members throughout the Diocese to consider volunteering to serve on one of the Design Teams to help implement the Strategic Plan. We are especially interested in recruiting people who are seekers and questioners, team players who are committed to the goals of each team, and people with new eyes to offer fresh approaches. People may be nominated by others (with permission) or nominate themselves.
To nominate or self-nominate, please use this form  HERE The first meeting of all three of the Design Teams will take place on Saturday, April 7, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Nominations are due by Friday, March 16, 2018.
If you have any questions about Design Teams, the Strategic Plan, or the process, please contact me by e-mail at  kcullinane@episcopalhawaii.org  or call (808) 536-7776 ext. 300.
If you'd like to re-review the Strategic Plan, click HERE.  There will be three Design Teams.  They are as follows:
Spiritual Growth
Goal:  The Diocese is committed to developing and sustaining spiritual growth, vitality, curiosity and well-being within our churches.
For the Spiritual Growth Team we are looking for people who are not only prayerful and gifted in spiritual direction but also people who might be described at poets and prophets. We are seeking members who can communicate what the poet sees so the pragmatists can make it happen. The members of this team could also be described at truth tellers, seekers and perhaps recent converts who are not afraid to ask questions. People on this team may also be people who feel their faith has failed them and can articulate what might be missing their congregations and the church that would more readily speak to a spiritual core.
Goal:  The Diocese seeks to strengthen our identity as one 'ohana and the relationships within our 'ohana among clergy, lay leaders and congregations.
People on this Design Team could be described as natural gatherers of others; people who seem to know everyone's story because they are genuinely interested in others. Members of this team are people who can make social events happen, are natural communicators and mediators and are perceived as trusted and credible. These are people who would make good employees at Cheers; "a place where everybody knows your name."
Goal:  The Diocese is focused on improving the capacity for communication within our congregations, across the Diocese, and into our communities as we engage in evangelism.
Members of this Design Team will be excited about the church and their congregation, have experience in branding and marketing and with communications tools. The people on this team will be passionate about telling the Gospel story, be an EFM or Godly Play evangelist, or a historian of the Episcopal Church in Hawaii and wisdom bearer. New members to our congregations who have not learned Christianese/Episcopal dialect as welcome on this Team to help question what words mean and how we use them.
United in Prayer Day Coming Up
Trinity Episcopal By-the-Sea in Kihei, Maui, will be hosting the Contemplative Outreach of Hawai'i's  United in Prayer Day on Saturday, March 17, 2018, from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM.  All are invited to attend. Participants are welcome to bring a lunch and stay afterwards to chat.

The Episcopal Church Women of the Diocese of Hawai'i will be holding their annual Quiet Day Retreat on Saturday, March 24, 2018, at the St. Anthony's Retreat Center in Kalihi Valley, beginning at 8:30 AM.  The theme for this year's event is "Surrendering to the Love of God," and the retreat's spiritual guide will be the Rev. Alison Dingley.  The cost is $20 and includes lunch and materials. For more information and to register, download the form HERE.

Empty Bowls 2018 Event

Following her address will be a simple dinner of soup and bread, student musical performances and student presentations on serving the hungry in our community.

The event is free although donations of food for  Aloha Harvest are being requested that might include fresh vegetables, fruit and packaged foods.  For more information on Empty Bowls and the #PrayFastAct Hunger Campaign, visit the event webpage HERE, where you can also register to attend.  
Trinity's Da Clutter Sale

What's Happening in The Episcopal Church? 

Announcements from around The Episcopal Church & beyond 

Presiding Bishop on Parkland Shooting Video
"We must make our country safe because all of us are valuable and we are all children of God."

[February 28, 2018] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry has released a video calling for action to make this country safe. "We must make our country sa fe because all of us are valuable and we are all children of God."

The Presiding Bishop notes, "We in the United States are in the midst of a great discussion, a great debate."

He speaks about the young people of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, the site of the recent shooting.  "They are asking us, and imploring us, and challenging us to find a better way."

He notes we need "to make our schools safe, to make our streets safe, and to make this country safe for all of God's children and all of God's people."

Presiding Bishop Announces The Episcopal Church 2018 Annual Appeal
[March 1, 2018] Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry has announced the launch of The Episcopal 2018 Annual Appeal and calls upon Episcopalians throughout the church to participate.

"I write to share some of the ways we, together as the Episcopal Church, witness to the loving, liberating, and life-giving way of Jesus Christ, and to ask for your financial support through this first Annual Appeal," he writes. "Your gift or pledge to the Annual Appeal will directly impact our life and witness as the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement."

"When we work together, we can better proclaim the gospel in communities across the church, support our chaplains in federal ministries, and advocate in Washington DC for justice and peace," House of Deputies President Gay Clark Jennings said. "I invite all Episcopalians to join me in supporting this annual appeal that will make more ministry possible across the Episcopal Church."
The House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church is meeting in retreat at Camp Allen in Navasota, TX.  The following are highlights of some of the issues and work being done:

Episcopal House of Bishops Meeting Accepts Statement on Sexual Harassment, Gender Bias
During the March 7 session, the bishops unanimously accepted the following statement on sexual harassment, gender-based violence, and gender bias and inequity.

This is the first time the House of Bishops has met as a body since the #MeToo movement began last fall, bringing to light the reality of sexual harassment, gender-based violence, and the cultural stronghold of gender bias and inequity. We continue our own work of reconciliation within our branch of God's Church, honoring what we have learned and accomplished, as well as acknowledging the distance we still must travel. Reconciliation is the long work of healing offered by the Spirit, made possible by grace, which requires our truth-telling and repentance.  READ MORE

Episcopal House of Bishops Meeting Accepts Statement on Gun Violence
On March 7, the House of Bishops unanimously accepted the following statement on gun violence.

"I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.  Choose life so that you and your descendants may live."  (Deuteronomy 30:19)

At this critical moment young people of the United States are inviting us to turn away from the nightmare of gun violence to the dream of choosing life.  The young people of Parkland, Florida are calling for elected officials to:
  • ban the sale of assault weapons
  • prohibit the sale of high capacity magazines
  • close loopholes in background checks
Others are seeking to:
  • ban the sale of bump stocks
  • raise the age to 21 years to purchase firearms
  • challenge the National Rifle Association to support safe gun legislation.
We, the bishops of The Episcopal Church, wholeheartedly support and join with the youth in this call to actionREAD MORE
