A message from Junior Warden, David Murray:

I want to say mahalo nui loa to everybody who contributed to the success of the Holy Sovereigns service.  So many people were involved in cleaning and setting up on the work day on Saturday, the service itself, the dedication ceremony, refreshments, and then clearing up afterwards.  Mahalo also to ke Akua for the beautiful day!  Members of the Hawaiian organizations and 'Iolani Guild have told me how much they enjoyed the service and how much they appreciate our support of the Hawaiian language, culture and history.
Me ke aloha pumehana.
Ke Akua pu me Hale Pule All Saints'.

Sunday's Special Service for Our Holy Sovereigns
& Blessing of the Peace Garden

The annual Hawaiian Service on Sunday, October 13, was once again a wonderful tribute to our Holy Sovereigns, King Kamehameha IV & Queen Emma. Along with the gorgeous weather and blue skies, a number of familiar and new faces from the Hawaiian Civic Organizations graced the pews. Dancers from Leilani Rivera-Low's halau performed the Prelude Kahiko dances, and Chucky Boy Chock performed a couple of his own moving and beautiful songs during the service. Fr. Ryan and Rev. Mokihana Powers shared in leading the worship both in Hawaiian and English, and Julie Malana Lopez read the readings in Hawaiian, going it alone this year now that her older sister is away in college.
After the service, everyone headed to the Peace Garden, where ho'okupu were presented to the King & Queen by the different Hawaiian organizations, followed by the blessing of the Garden, dedicated to our Holy Sovereigns. 

A contingent from the 'Iolani Guild on O'ahu were present to plant a gift of white hibiscus in the garden. President Leimalama Lee Loy did the honors with shovel in hand, as the plant was placed in the ground. Everyone enjoyed a fabulous Hawaiian spread afterwards, feasting on Kalua pork, lomi salmon, chicken long rice, chow mein, haupia, salads, and lots of other ono dishes. 

Many thanks to David Murray for organizing another memorable event that brings together members from our Hawaiian community from near and far, to celebrate the legacy of our King & Queen. Amene! (Photos by Sybil Nishioka)
Final Ocktoberfest #3 Coming up on Sunday
For those of you that are invited to attend the third and final Ocktoberfest Rectory gathering, this is a reminder that it is this Sunday, October 20, from 4:00 - 6:00 pm. The gatherings, hosted by the Newman's, have been a wonderful opportunity to fellowship and share stories with members that we normally don't get to see very often. It has also been a great time to see the remarkable work that has been done in the Rectory, thanks to the generosity and design expertise of Fr. Ryan and Dr.Erin. Be sure to share in their joy this Sunday!
