How can our Holy Apostles Community take steps to be more sustainable and kind to our environment?

We are all familiar with the plastic six pack holders that attach our favorite canned juices, soda, and beer. Did you know that they are an ocean hazard to birds and marine animals? Birds can catch a loop around their necks while fishing in the ocean and drown. Young seals and other marine animals could get the rings caught around their necks which could cause them to suffocate.

What can you do to help? Before you toss the six pack holders into the garbage, snip each ring with a scissors. When you're on the beach please pick up any six pack holders and snip before you throw them away. You can make a difference. Thank you!
Dr. Marina Karides of UH Hilo’s Sociology department will provide context on social tensions among us here on Hawaiʻi Island as ICIA begins is examination of “Dangerous Strangers and the Freying of Aloha” at our next general meeting.
  • Date: Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

Celebration of Ministry: Meals on Wheels
Chairperson: Diane Cockett

During the seasons of Thanksgiving and Easter for the past 25 years, the Church of Holy Apostles provides approximately 150 small goody bags to the Office of Aging. These goody bags accompany the Meals on Wheels drivers to their food preparation centers and eventually gets delivered to participating Kūpuna. The goody bags contain healthy treats and a holiday blessing.

This past Easter, two lovely ladies called our office to extend a hearty MAHALO for our ministry. Listen to their mahaloʻs by clicking HERE .

Your ministry matters! Thank you for all of the goodwill and aloha shared with the community.
Seminarian Update 
Andrew Arakawa and his family, Kim and Liam , were active at Holy Apostles until a few years ago when they moved to Virginia after Andrew discerned a call to the priesthood. CHA sponsored his ordination discernment through seminary and Andrew will graduate from Virginia Theological Seminary this May! God willing and the people consenting, the Rt. Rev. Bob Fitzpatrick will ordain Andrew Arakawa and Stephen McPeek to the transitional diaconate on June 22, 2019 at 10:00 am in the Cathedral of St. Andrew. Pastor Katlin and others will present Andrew in the liturgy on behalf of Holy Apostles. A gift has been prepared from Holy Apostles (to be later announced so not to spoil the surprise). If you can make the trip, the liturgy of ordination is an open invitation! Additionally, Andrew has been appointed to a chaplain position at 'Iolani school in Honolulu. Congratulatory notes may be sent to Holy Apostles and will be forwarded to Andrew.
