Let your continual mercy, O Lord, cleanse and defend your Church; and, because it cannot continue in safety without your help, protect and govern it always by your goodness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

St. John's Zoe Mounts Honored at the Blue Planet Foundation Student Energy Summit
Passionate about caring for our planet and environment, Zoe Mounts became St. John's Episcopal Church's Environmental Coordinator in December 2021. At the time, she was a freshman at Seabury Hall organizing a Sustainability Club, and already implementing zero-waste practices at home.

In April, Zoe was honored at the 2022 Blue Planet Foundation Student Energy Summit for her work on climate awareness. Through a six-month reserach project, Zoe created four videos about climate change, pollution, food waste and consumption.

In an article in the Maui News (see HERE) featuring Zoe, she said, “The Summit offered a forum to cultivate ideas for solving the biggest challenges of our generation... I was inspired to think creatively about renewable energy, clean-transportation alternatives and energy efficiency."

Congratulations Zoe and continue your great work!

2022 Day Camp at Holy Apostles Church 
Staff from Camp Mokulē'ia on O'ahu, came to Hilo to lead a day camp at Holy Apostles Episcopal Church. Each day the campers enjoyed team building activities such as nalgene face and atomic sun; arts and crafts such as firework painting and shaving cream swirls; water activities such as slip 'n slide and duck duck splash, and loads of silly sports and goofy games. They got to go on field trips to the beach and the botanical garden at The University of Hawai'i (Hilo) to learn about plants that dinosaurs lived with! They even had the opportunity to say thank you to the church by weeding the flower beds and dusting the pews. The campers and counselors sure laughed a lot while making memories during the week! Thank you to the Holy Apostles 'ohana for sharing your space and supporting the campers! (Photos and article from the Holy Apostles' weekly newsletter)
