We are posting a brief day by day meditation from Forward Movement. It's a great way to start your morning! Just click on the website above.
David Callies has retired from the Richardson School of Law at UH, Manoa, after 42 years on the faculty. He was hired in only the fifth year of the law school’s existence. His specialty is land use and zoning and he has always taught the required first year course on Real Property. David has also written or co-edited about twenty books and always participated in public service activity in our community along the way.
Originally from the Chicago area, David was raised by a Missouri Synod Lutheran father and a Roman Catholic mother so, of course, he became an Episcopalian! David attended Depauw University in Indiana for his undergraduate degree, the University of Michigan for law school and Nottingham University (UK) for his LLM degree. He served as an assistant state attorney for a year before joining the largest law firm in Chicago, where he became a partner. He also taught at University of Wisconsin and the University of Illinois. He accepted the Richardson Law School appointment in 1978. David has been married to his Hawaiian wife Laurie for 25 years.
David first attended the Episcopal Cathedral here; he served as an usher and on the Chapter (similar to a vestry). He joined Holy Nativity when Father Rick was rector. He and his wife have both served on the Holy Nativity School Board and she is an HNS alumna. David has also served on our HNC vestry and as an usher.
And what is it you probably don’t know about David? He is a classically trained organist who served in churches in Illinois and in Indiana. He says the transition from piano to organ was very challenging—what with more keyboards and an entirely different sense of touch.
David, we are so glad you are with us at Holy Nativity!

2) Email a photo of your ID and Vaccination Card to HNCparish@gmail.com Our Administrator, Athena, will log your information and then delete the email.
This new policy, and all existing policies and practices implemented during the Pandemic are in place to protect our congregants, employees, students, volunteers, and the public. We thank you all for your service and cooperation during this challenging time.
