Curates Corner

Holy Nativity continues the tradition of giving to our local community. 
Fr. Chris, Mr. Seeley, Mrs Spierings Chief Development Officer & Mrs Akini

On January 14, 2019 The Holy Nativity Thrift Shop donated $4,400.00 from its Fall Festival to Parents and Children Together (PACT). From its humble beginnings as single program in Kalihi, Parents and Children Together has grown into a multi-faceted social services agency, helping Hawaii's most vulnerable and impoverished communities statewide. Working together with Hawaii's children, individuals, and families to create safe and promising futures is the PACT mission. PACT has a vision and believes that Hawaii is a peaceful, safe and vibrant place; where opportunities abound for all. We at Holy Nativity also believe in that vision. If you would like to learn more about PACT please visit their website  here    
 
Almighty God, heavenly Father, you have blessed us with the  joy and care of children: Give us calm strength and patient  wisdom as we bring them up, that we may teach them to love  whatever is just and true and good, following the example of  our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen. The Book of Common Prayer

A Message from the Holy Nativity School and Church Mission Possible Group
The Holy Nativity School is an important and cherished mission of the Church of the Holy Nativity. The school is a corporation owned by the parish and the land and buildings they share are held in trust for the Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii. The church and school share many expenses including maintenance, insurance and utilities. The school is supported by tuition payments, fundraising and gifts; it has a small endowment. The church is supported by its congregation's giving, rental income from external parties and from endowments; it also operates a thrift shop. The church and school have agreed upon which indoor and outdoor spaces are designated for each-- either in their entirety or as scheduled.
The Church of the Holy Nativity worships God, encourages spiritual growth and shares God's bounty through outreach. Holy Nativity School values each child's individuality and seeks to develop principled citizens. Our Episcopal identity is found in our traditional worship, religious study, community life and pursuit of justice.
Our school's Board has fiduciary responsibility to our church. The board hires the Head of School with prior concurrence by the parish's Rector. The Head of School develops and implements policies and programs, hires staff and faculty, answers to the school's board, reports regularly about the school's progress to the Vestry and maintains a collegial relationship with the Rector. The church's Vestry calls the parish Rector, appoints school board members (nominated by a committee with church and school members), meets semi-annually with the school board and monitor's the school's well-being. In 2018-19 our school will begin to contribute to the capital improvements of the shared property. The school and the parish appoint members of a Capital Improvement Committee which prioritizes and manages needed improvements as approved by the Vestry and the Diocese.
