Sixth Sunday of Easter
O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good
things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Camp Mokule'ia Says "Mahalo" to Its Heroes
By Cecilia Fordham, Camp Mokule'ia Board Member
Camp Mokuleia header
Heroes are ordinary people who accomplish extraordinary feats in dangerous or unexpected circumstances. Camp Mokule'ia wants to publicly pay tribute to the feats that were accomplished in the hours and six weeks after the Camp was under siege from the sea, the wind, and the waves, and to the heroes who accomplished those feats since the last E-News status update. No capes or masks here, just muscle and spirit!

Praise and thanks to the Camp Staff, from the business manager to kitchen and grounds folks; Debbie, Shanee, Tara, Lisa, Seini, Teddy, Shelly, Shauna, Sunny, Dawn, and the Executive Director, David Turner. They endured sleepless nights and long days of physical labor. 

So what makes them heroes? Just one example: Under Facilities Manager Teddy's leadership, they built a 70'x16' covering from roof to seawall to deflect the powerful 40 foot waves. Like crabs, some staff scrambled up and down the rocks as others acted as lookouts for big waves coming. That construction saved the Beach House that would have been destroyed. Tired, but tireless, they helped David Turner and his wife pack up valuables and evacuate the Beach House; all this in about 36 hours.

Board president, J. Lee Bell, The North Shore neighbors, the Waialua Boys Soccer team and friends of the diocese, responded with heavy equipment and hours and hours of time and labor to move over 150 cubic yards of sand to create a 3-foot high berm stretching 400 feet in length, and filled over 1000 sand bags. These sand bags and the berm prevented further seawall and water damage to the grounds. Super heroes lift sandbags!

On the day the 40-foot waves exploded, Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick sent an emergency e-blast to the diocese with a call for financial assistance for what would be, and are, sizeable expenses. He led by example. Over 60 donors answered the plea and gave $18,000 plus in emergency donations. These donations helped with the immediate repair costs and the Camp having to close for business for ten days. Mahalo heroes for your donations and notes of encouragement!

Now that the emergency part is over, the major repair work must be accomplished. The three big repairs include the sinkhole between the Beach House and the seawall, 80 feet of sea wall that collapsed in front of cabins Iwa and Pueo, and spot repair for the loss of soil, rock and grout in about 400 feet of sea wall with an estimated cost in the hundreds of thousands.

The good news is that Camp Mokule'ia is back in business!

Upcoming events:
  • Fourth Annual Writer's Retreat from May 1-5, featuring nationally-known authors as teachers/mentors working with local and mainland writers
  • HUI PU Summer Youth Camp, "Faith is Like a Mustard Seed", led by Camp Mokule'ia program staff. Watch for the flyer.
  • Camp Anuenue, a camp for children diagnosed with cancer, in its 31st year - Previously run by the American Cancer Society, located at Camp Mokule'ia, is now run by the Camp program staff.
  • Showers and bathroom facilities return to the camping site.
Be a Camp Mokule'ia Hero!
This month's Deadline is Friday, April 29
1% Diocesan Council Grants Available
The monthly deadline to apply for a 1% Diocesan Council Grant is this Friday, April 29.  New guidelines for 2016 have been posted on the diocesan website's "Forms and Documents" page HERE. (Scroll down to "Grants".)

The grants, which have been awarded to a number of programs throughout the Diocese in 2015, support activities based on the Five Marks of Mission and are in alignment with the vision and goals of The Episcopal Church in Hawai'i. Soup kitchens, music and children's programs, Care Van ministry, technology and laundry outreach are some of the programs that were funded. 
St. John's on Kaua'i Celebrates 75 Years!
St. John's Episcopal Church in Ele'ele, will be celebrating its 75th Anniversary on Sunday, May 1, during a special church service at 10:00 AM, led by Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick.  Following the service there will be a catered luncheon in the parish hall that will contain displays of historical documents, memorabilia, and a timeline on the wall.  All are invited to attend this joyous event! For more information, contact the church office at (808) 335-5533.
Critical Service-Learning: Student Summit on Poverty & Homelessness in Hawai'i
Students at 'Iolani School that have been taking a course entitled Critical Service Learning: Poverty, Homelessness and Hunger in Hawai'i, have put together a presentation about what they've learned during the semester.  The presentation will take place, on Wednesday, May 25, at the school's Sullivan Center.

The course, offered through the Religion Department and in partnership with Family Promise Hawai'i, focuses on the systemic causes of poverty in Hawai'i, while allowing students to serve the homeless and explore the religious and spiritual call to compassion through engaging in acts of mercy, justice and advocacy. 

The event will begin at 5:30 PM, with light pupus and refreshments, followed by the student presentation and Family Promise Panel at 6:00 PM.  For those interested in attending you can register online HERE, or e-mail the Rev. Nicole Simopoulos, by Friday, May 20.

A Letter from Lukasa: The Episcopal Church Team at the Anglican Consultative Council
April 19, 2016

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ in The Episcopal Church:

The 16th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council concluded today at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka, Zambia, and tonight and tomorrow, we are saying farewell to our fellow ACC members from across the Anglican Communion and making our way home.

ACC16 was filled with joy, grace and love as close to seventy Anglican sisters and brothers in Christ, laypeople, priests and bishops, came together in prayer, Bible study, and worship.  Our time together over the last thirteen days has visibly demonstrated, once again, our unity in diversity as the provinces of the Anglican Communion. Meeting fellow Anglicans from around the world in discussions, around the altar, in tea breaks, and at meals, we learned from each other what intentional discipleship across our differences means as the Body of Christ in the world today.  We are thankful to God and to The Episcopal Church for this privilege of representing our church on the Anglican Consultative Council.
