King Kamehameha IV, who was crowned in 1854, and his wife, Queen Emma, actively sought a branch of Christianity that was all-embracing, reconciliatory, and accepting of Hawaiian culture, yet orthodox and traditional.
They found such in Anglicanism.
Queen Victoria served as godmother to their son. Under royal patronage Thomas N. Staley became Hawaii’s first bishop, ground was broken for St. Andrew’s Cathedral in Honolulu,
The Book of Common Prayer was translated into Hawaiian, the Queen’s Hospital was founded, and several schools were established in the islands with Anglican clergy as tutors. Kamehameha was only twenty-nine when he died. Queen Emma lived on for many years and became a symbol of dignity and Christian piety to the people of Hawaii. The Archbishop of Canterbury described her as one of the most saintly souls he had ever met.
ThriftShopFall Festival & ChristmasSale a HUGE SUCCESS!
Beautiful and bountiful does not begin to describe the transformation of the gym into a Holiday wonderland and shopping bonanza! The Thrift Shop elves worked for days on the preparation and presentation.
The public was, as usual, waiting from the early morning hours to get at the goodies!
A great time was had by all, and a tidy sum came through this ministry!
Kudos and big Mahalo to Peggy, Cheri, and Skye, along with ALL the tireless Volunteers who made it happen! Ho Ho Ho!
