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

June Green Tip : Summer is here! As we look forward to longer sunny days, please protect yourself from excessive sun exposure with a hat, sunglasses, appropriate clothing, and sunscreen. 

Did you know that in 2018 Governor Ige signed a bill that bans sunscreen containing chemicals harmful to coral reefs? We are the 1st state in the nation to pass this type of law. Although, the bill doesn't go into effect until January 1, 2021, you can be proactive today. Please read your labels and avoid sunscreen containing oxybenzone and octinoxate. It is a common allergen & has been linked to coral bleaching & declining health of coral reefs and marine life. A safer and recommended sunscreen is mineral based - such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.

We know how much summer vacation means to every family that may include travel to visit friends and relatives, back yard family BBQs, beach days, and many other outdoor activities that families enjoy. Sunday School summer hiatus begins June 1 and ends on August 18, 2019.   We look to forward to resuming regular Sunday School classes on Sunday, August 25 during the 10:00 am worship service. 

Be sure to come back for another exciting fall semester as Family Ministry Director Lindbergh Marzo and the corp of talented, God loving teachers start to prepare their Sunday School plans.

For more information contact Lindbergh Marzo at  familylife@episcopalchurchhilo.org .
Opportunities from the Office of the Bishop:

“Invite/Welcome/Connect”  (see  Invite/Welcome/Connect ) is coming  to the Diocese on  Saturday September 7, 2019 . Led by Mary Palmer, Invite/Welcome/Connect "is a ministry of relational evangelism and congregational empowerment allowing churches to become places of genuine connection for inviting the faith journeys and stories of everyone, enabling deeper journeys of Christian discipleship and enabling the Spirit of Christ to be at the heart of each church's hospitable mission of spreading the Good News." The workshop will be taking place at the Cathedral of St. Andrew, Davies Hall, from 9:00 AM-3:00 PM. Cost is only $15 and includes lunch. Airfare will be covered for neighbor island clergy and two others from each church. Register at  "Registration for Invite/Welcome/Connect"

The Reverend  Jay Sidebotham  from  RenewalWorks  (see  Renewal/Works ) is now scheduled to be with us as the presenter at  Diocesan Education Day (Friday, October 25)  and as the chaplain to the Annual Meeting of Diocesan Convention (Saturday, October 26). Many experienced Jay’s plenary presentation and workshop at “Renewal 2019.” Remember, Education Day is open to anyone in the Diocese, but it is particularly important for Diocesan leaders (including Delegates, Wardens and Vestry/Bishop’s Committee members) to take part.
 
If you are interested in either, please contact Pastor Katlin.

Centering Prayer:

Looking for a spiritual network of individuals committed to receive the gift of contemplative prayer in which we experience God's presence within us? This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
