Proper 24
Almighty and everlasting God, in Christ you have revealed
your glory among the nations: Preserve the works of your
mercy, that your Church throughout the world may
persevere with steadfast faith in the confession of your
Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Pulama 2016 Feast Day:
Thoughts & Reflections on Our Holy Sovereigns
King Kamehameha IV & Queen Emma
As November approaches, churches around the Diocese will be planning special services for the Feast of the Holy Sovereigns, honoring King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma. The feast day, which is observed on November 28, celebrates the King and Queen who brought the Anglican Church to Hawai'i, and left an enduring legacy of community service that continues to lift the human spirit, mind and body. 

The Rev. Moki Hino and Dixie Kaetsu from Holy Apostles in Hilo, produced a wonderful film entitled Pulama, in which people from around the Diocese shared personal thoughts about the royal couple and the impact they had and continue to have throughout the islands. Hino and Kaetsu traveled to each of the main islands to conduct the interviews, which were then beautifully interwoven with prayer and reflections. The video is created for all to view and share as we pay homage to our King and Queen next month. 

Click on the links below to view a short trailer, and also the full-version which runs about 25 minutes. The video will also be posted on the diocesan website's homepage through November.

Announcements from around The Episcopal Church & beyond 

Presiding Bishop on the Passing of Shimon Peres
Shimon Peres
[September 29, 2016] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry has issued the following statement on the passing of Shimon Peres.

We in the Episcopal Church join with our brothers and sisters throughout the world in mourning the passing of Shimon Peres. He will long be remembered as a leader of Israel, a citizen of the world, and as one who shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Yasser Arafat, Yitzhak Rabin, as a man of peace. For that noble work the words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount seem appropriate:

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God."

The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry
Presiding Bishop and Primate
The Episcopal Church
Observing National Disability Employment Awareness Month
[October 14, 2016]  In honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, observed throughout October, Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry has asked all Episcopalians to remember and honor the invaluable contributions of disabled lay and clergy who have served, and currently serve, within the Episcopal Church.

The 78th General Convention in 2015 renewed and reaffirmed the Episcopal Church's commitment to the inclusion and protection of the civil rights of all persons with disabilities through the passage of Resolution D034: Support the Civil Rights of Disabled Persons.

National Disability Employment Awareness Month presents all dioceses and congregations with the opportunity to fully implement Resolution D034 through seeking education from community deaf/hard of hearing and disability organizations on supporting full inclusion of disabled persons in all aspects of public life.

"Renewed commitment calls for renewed action," Presiding Bishop Curry said.  "This October, let us walk together in the footsteps of Jesus Christ to transform the unjust structures of society and more fully welcome our disabled brothers and sisters living within our congregations and our communities."

Resolution D034 marked the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a bill that proscribes discrimination against disabled persons in public accommodation, in communications, and in employment. Resolution D034 also declares the Church's continuing and unwavering support for the ADA and advocates for total compliance with the spirit and intent of this law.  

For ideas and resources to observe National Disability Employment Awareness Month contact Jayce Hafner, Episcopal Church Domestic Policy Analyst, at   jhafner@episcopalchurch.org
Episcopal Congregations Research Info Available
[September 23, 2016] Based on 2015 data received from the annual Parochial Report, updated facts and figures about Episcopal Church congregations have been posted HERE.

"2015 Parochial Report statistics are now available in English and Spanish," noted Dr. Kirk Hadaway, Episcopal Church Congregational Research Officer. "The summary Statistical Totals tables report on 2015 Average Sunday Attendance and Active Baptized Membership.  In addition, there are multi-year breakdowns by Province and Diocese on Average Pledge, and Domestic Plate & Pledge Income."

Hadaway explained that in 2015, active baptized membership declined by nearly 39,000 persons to 1,917,182, or -2.0%.  Average Sunday (worship) attendance in Episcopal congregations declined by just over 20,000 persons to 614,241 in 2015, or -3.2%.  Operating income among domestic congregations increased in 2015 by 1.2%--exceeding the 0.7% inflation rate the same year.  READ MORE
