2018 Holy Sovereigns' Celebration
This Sunday, October 14th - 9:30AM
All Saints' Episcopal Church will be holding its annual celebration of the lives and accomplishments of King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma - the Holy Sovereigns - on Sunday, October 14 th . The service will start at 9:30AM.


Within a year of ascending the throne in 1855, the twenty-year-old King Kamehameha IV and his spouse, Emma Rooke, embarked on the path of altruism and unassuming humility for which they have been revered by their people.

In 1860, the king and queen petitioned the Bishop of Oxford to send missionaries to establish the Anglican Church in Hawaii. The king’s interest came through a boyhood tour of England where he had seen, in the stately beauty of Anglican liturgy, a quality that seemed attuned to the gentle beauty of the Hawaiian spirit. England responded by sending the Rt. Rev. Thomas N. Staley and two priests. They arrived on October 11, 1862, and the king and queen were confirmed a month later, on November 28, 1862. They then began preparations for a cathedral and school, and the king set about to translate the Book of Common Prayer and much of the hymnal.

Kamehameha’s and Emma’s lives were marred by the tragic death of their only child, a four-year-old son, in 1863. Kamahameha seemed unable to survive his sadness, although a sermon he preached after his son’s death expresses a hope and faith that is eloquent and profound. His own death took place only a year after his son’s, in 1864. Emma declined to rule; instead, she committed her life to good works. She was responsible for schools, churches, and efforts on behalf of the poor and sick. She traveled several times to England and the European continent to raise funds and became a favorite of Queen Victoria’s. Archbishop Longley of Canterbury remarked upon her visit to Lambeth: “I was much struck by the cultivation of her mind…But what excited my interest most was her almost saintly piety.”
The cathedral was completed after Emma died. It was named St. Andrew’s in memory of the king, who died on that saint’s day. Among the Hawaiian people, Emma is still referred to as “our beloved Queen.”

Congratulations to Casey Nakamura!

In her post, she celebrates and honors the incredible women she served with during basic training. Thank you Casey for your service to your country. God bless you--you are in our prayers!

There will be ONE service on November 4th at 9:30AM

We invite you to join us for a special service on November 4th! We will gather as one worshiping congregation at 9:30AM to celebrate our paternal feast; All Saints' Day. In addition, we will say "mahalo" and "aloha" to the Newman 'Ohana on their final Sunday serving at All Saints'.

During the service, Baby Newman (Lexie) and Baby Wakuta (Kylan) will be welcomed in the Household of God through the waters of Baptism. Bishop Fitzpatrick will be joining us the celebration for this significant day in All Saints' Day history.

Following the service, in typical All Saints' fashion, we will host an amazing potluck Aloha Hour and we want to encourage everyone to bring a dish to share!
October 14th: God Gives us Gifts of Life and Love
Sunday’s lesson from Deuteronomy and Leviticus provide a picture of the essence of Jewish theology and ethical thinking. These readings teach us about the God who chose us as God’s people. What kind of God is this? And what does God want of us? In these passages, we find a God who gives us, as the lesson title says, gifts of life and love. The passages are important readings for knowing who we are as God’s people, who God is as our God, and what God asks of us.

Deuteronomy 6
The people are continually reminded that Yahweh is the only God and is to be given total love. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart...”

Deuteronomy 7
The people of Israel have been chosen to be God’s people, not because they are more numerous than anyone else, but because God loves them, is keeping God’s promise to care for them, and freed them from slavery.
