75th Anniversary Event

This past Saturday, November 11th,

we shared a wonderful time with community members, and family & friends of Holy Nativity.

We were entertained with performances, exhibitions, and of course, music!

Food Trucks and a beverage bar refreshed our bodies, just as the event refreshed our spirits!

There was fun merchandise to be procured; thanks, girls!

A delightful time was had by all!


Special Family Sunday & 75th Anniversary Service 11/12

We gathered on Sunday to celebrate "all the saints" of Holy Nativity.

There was a parade of acolytes, special music, and a reading of

Pule - E Ke Akua Mana Loa

from our own Noel Donahue.

E ke akua loa

'O 'Oe ka mana'o'i'o, ka mana'olana

A me ke aloha pau 'ole


Our most powerful God, you are the faith , the hope, and the never-ending love, Amen.

Food & fellowship concluded a very special Sunday service.
