First Sunday After Pentecost: Trinity Sunday
Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
In this issue's header photo, Bishop Bob presents the "Bishop's Award" to Lesley Bray-Toguchi, a 2022 graduate of St. Andrew's Schools (Priory). Each year the Bishop presents this award to a student at each of the three main Episcopal Schools in Hawai'i that includes 'Iolani and Seabury Hall.
I urge all churches in the Diocese to hear and follow the Presiding Bishop’s call. Please share this in all our congregations.

Presiding bishop calls Episcopalians to ‘A Season of Prayer for Revival’
Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry invites Episcopalians everywhere to mark the season after Pentecost with 30 days of prayer leading up to and encompassing the 80th General Convention in Baltimore, Maryland.
“A Season of Prayer for Revival”—from June 12 through July 11—will feature daily prayers drawn from the Book of Common Prayer. Individuals can sign up online to receive the prayers and inspirational messages via email. The prayers will also be posted daily on social media accounts for The Episcopal Church and Forward Movement.

Downloadable bulletin inserts are available for congregational use. All materials are in Spanish and English. Click here for access to the bulletin inserts and social media graphics.

“As we move toward and adapt to a shorter, smaller General Convention, I invite every Episcopalian—whether you’re in Baltimore or Alaska or Honduras, whether you’re a deputy, a bishop, or a new member sitting in the pews—I invite all of us to pause each day just for a moment to pray for the expansive, reviving power of the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts and minds,” Curry said. “We are people of common prayer; may we embrace this season as an opportunity for us all to become a church that truly lives, looks, and loves like Jesus.”

The 80th General Convention is scheduled for July 8-11.
From a message released May 27, 2022:
RIP The Reverend A. Donor Macneice
The Reverend A. Donor Macneice died on Friday, May 20, 2022, at the age of 88. Donor retired (in 2006) from Hawai’i after serving as the priest at Christ Memorial Church and St. Thomas Church on Kauai . In retirement, he resided in Cambodia.

God our creator and redeemer, by your power Christ conquered death and entered into glory. Confident of his victory and claiming his promises, we now leave your servant, Donor, in your gracious and merciful keeping; in the name of Jesus our Lord, who died and is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The Right Reverend Robert L. Fitzpatrick
