Prayer


Proper 19
O God, because without you we are not able to please you,
mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct
and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and
for ever. Amen.

Thurible & Incense Training with the Bishop
The Rt. Rev. Robert Fitzpatrick will provide training on the use of the thurible and incense at Calvary Episcopal Church on Saturday, September 10, 2016, from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM.  Clergy, lay leaders and the public are invited. Parking is available on the lot behind the church building.

Hawaiian-Language Gospel Book (Na 'Euanelio Hemolele) & Book of Common Prayer Available for Purchase
The Office of the Bishop is offering for purchase, Na 'Euanelio Hemolele, the Holy Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and the Hawaiian-language Book of Common Prayer.

The lectionary-size Gospel book is written in Hawaiian complete with diacritical marks. The publication was funded by the Diocese's Commission on Native Hawaiian Ministry, originally released in 2003. It was a project of the Rev. Cn. Malcolm Naea Chun, that took over 20 years to complete.  It has a white hard-cover with gold foil stamping.

The Hawaiian-language BCP is cloth-bound in red with gold foil stamping, and contains over 400 pages of translated biblical scripture, liturgical prayers, and orders service, including King Kamehameha IV's Preface.  King Kamehameha IV translated the Book of Common Prayer into Hawaiian language as an act of personal piety and Christian devotion.  His translation remains a milestone in Hawaiian literature and a valuable resource for anyone studying the language. 

Both of these books are now available for purchase through the Office of the Bishop and can be ordered online HERE. The books are $30.00 each.  Shipping is $6.00 per book, but arrangements can be made for pick-up. Special pricing applies to purchases of both books as a set. If you have any questions, e-mail Charmaine Ito.  For more information and to order your book now, click HERE.
