Expanding our Ministries

Update on Sandwich Ministry

 

Many thanks to the folks that are signing up for the Lenten Sandwich ministry to the Houseless in our neighborhood!  It is wonderful to witness that we have a heart to not only 'be fed' by Jesus in our worship, but to then take our service out into the world.  We are currently compiling the names and preference of ministry times with those of you who signed up.  We're currently contacting you for the days we schedule you to participate.  The ministry schedule (rota) will be posted on the bulletin board under the Aloha Tent.  Please check the board and get back with Mother Susan if you prefer to serve on a different date than assigned.   We will try to alternate weeks for the Kitchen Crew (sandwich makers) so that the 10:30 congregation makes them the odd Sundays, and the 8 am congregation makes them the even Sundays.  Those who distribute the sandwich bags in the nearby park will meet at the Davies Hall Kitchen at 4 pm.  For many of us - donations are often the best way to contribute.  Donations (cash or checks) for this ministry should be marked specifically.  Blessings to you all!

 

Susan...+  (susan.sowers@thecathedralofstandrew.org)

 

Liturgical Ministries

 

Every Sunday, we close our services with a prayer to God that He will "send us now into the world...to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart," or that He will "send us out...to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord."  Sometimes we wonder just how He means for us to do this.

 

Well, there are opportunities galore to serve Him even before we've said "amen" to these prayers. Carrying the processional cross as a Crucifer, carrying one of the torches as an Acolyte, assisting the Celebrant at the altar as a Server, or offering The Cup to our brothers and sisters in Christ as a Eucharistic Minister is most certainly serving our Lord-and most certainly "with gladness and singleness of heart" and "as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord."

  

Won't you consider participating in one or two capacities in this ministry?  You may be scheduled for only one service a month, maybe more; however, it would depend upon you.  Think about it, pray on it and, for further information, call Office Manager Charmaine Bernard at 524-2822, ext. 218 or talk to any of the liturgical ministers after the service.

Adult Formation Hour

Peggy Kai Lecture on Ash Wednesday

The Rev. Martin Smith

Exploring the Spirituality of Mission 

5 Mar. 2014

7 pm in the Von Holt Room 

 

The Cathedral of St. Andrew in downtown Honolulu, begins the season of Lent and its weekly Wednesday Lenten Program with the 2014 Margaret "Peggy" Kai Memorial lecture, "In at the Deep End: Exploring the Spirituality of Mission", with guest lecturer, The Rev. Martin Smith, on Wednesday, 5 March at 7 pm in Tenney Theater at the Cathedral.  At 5:30 pm in the Cathedral, Choral Evensong with Imposition of Ashes for Ash Wednesday will be sung by the Cathedral Choir, followed by a welcome reception in the Von Holt Room prior to the lecture.  The reception will continue after the lecture so that guests may have an opportunity to meet Rev. Smith.  The evening will conclude with Sung Compline in the Cathedral at 8:30 pm. All are welcome to attend this free lecture and all of the Cathedral's services and programs.

 

An ordained a priest for over 40 years, Rev. Smith is well known throughout the Episcopal Church, the global Anglican Communion, and beyond as a writer, preacher, and teacher who explores contemporary spirituality with resources from our deepest traditions. A number of his books, "The Word is Very Near You," "A Season for the Spirit," "Reconciliation," and more recently, "Compass and Stars," and a fully revised edition of "Reconciliation," (with the Rev. Mtr. Julia Gatta) are widely used in spiritual formation. Rev. Smith has recently retired as Senior Associate Rector at St. Columba's Episcopal Church, in Washington, D.C. and has served as Chaplain to the Episcopal Church's House of Bishops. He is a former monk, as a Brother of the Society of St. John the Evangelist (SSJE) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he also served as the order's Superior.

 

Fr. Martin Smith invites us to challenge the conventional division between concern for 'the spiritual life' and the Church's call to mission. Exploring in depth the spirituality and theology of baptism is a key way for us to grasp the call to mission as an outcome of our experience of the urgent 'wanting-to-be of God in our lives,' our sense of participation in the ongoing life of Christ in the world, and our identity as co-creators of God's future, in the Spirit.

A Quiet Day for Men with Fr. Martin Smith

 

Saturday, 8 Mar. 2014

9 am - 3 pm The St. Andrew's Schools
Malulani Gallery (In  the Transfiguration Building)

 

The Cathedral of St. Andrew is pleased that our 2014 Peggy Kai Lecturer and Lenten guest The Rev. (Fr.) Martin Smith is offering a Quiet Day for Men.

  

Using the theme of his Peggy Kai lecture (on March 5th), Fr. Smith will invite men to explore why the division between concern for 'the spiritual life' and the Church's call to mission needs to be reconsidered in order to develop an authentic life in God. For many men, this artificial division between contemplation and action has led to false choices and a lack of balance. An authentic life in God will lead all people to become more authentic persons and will include a more authentic way of understanding what it is to be a man who walks with God.

 

Fr. Smith will help the participants explore the spirituality and theology of baptism, along with monastic wisdom, as a key way for men to grasp the call to mission. This call is an outcome of the urgent 'wanting-to-be of God in our lives,' our sense of participation in the ongoing life of Christ in the world, and our identity as co-creators of God's future in the Spirit.

 

As Dean of the Cathedral, I encourage any male over the age of 16 who is a member of the Cathedral, or of any parish in the Diocese, to attend. Space is limited, so please RSVP the Office of the Dean by March 1st.

 

Mahalo, Aloha and God's Blessings

Fr. Walter Brownridge, Dean

Staff Highlights

Eric Banaticla Returns as Sexton

Eric Banaticla worked as our Sexton for eight months from December 2012 to June 2013.  At that time he left for personal reasons. Because he was such a valued employee, Charmaine Bernard, our Office Manager/Administrator convinced Eric to return, and he has been back on the job since January 1, 2014. As Sexton, Eric supports Charmaine with all matters dealing with our building and grounds. He also sets up and breaks down areas for the many functions held at the cathedral.

 

Eric was born and raised in Calamba, Laguna, Philippine Islands. In 1980 he married his sweetheart Emma in the Phillipines and then moved in 1982 to West Covina, California where he worked in janitorial services for Hawthorne.   After the birth of his son and two daughters they moved to Honolulu in 1994. Eric's first job in Honolulu was Trainer Supervisor at Lanakila Rehab Center.  He trained the handicap clients of janitorial services.  Eventually he moved into a supervisory position.  Eric has skills in electrical, plumbing, carpentry, irrigation and landscape design.

 

Eric's wife Emma is a CNA/Pharmacy Technician.  She has operated a two person Foster Home in their home in Robinson Heights near Waipahu since 2006. They have one granddaughter who lives in Ewa Beach.  Eric and Emma have been married for 33 years. Eric's hobby is landscape design and he has beautified the yard around his house. Eric and Emma worship at Word of Life.

We are so happy that Eric has returned to Saint Andrew's Cathedral. You can identify Eric by his constant and infectious smile.

 `Iolani Guild's Spring Luncheon

 

Saturday, March 8

11 am in the Von Holt Room

Submitted by Ann Hansen

 

The `Iolani Guild will host its spring luncheon meeting on Saturday, March 8, from 11 am to 2 pm in the Von Holt Room.

Following a business meeting, there will be a potluck luncheon. Please bring a dish to share.

 

Kahu Kaleo Patterson and Kala Holden will offer a presentation on Ho`oponopono from their years of facilitating this traditional Hawaiian cultural practice. Reverend Kaleo has taught Ho`oponopono for 12 years at the University of Hawai`I and in the prison system.

 

Kupuna Kala has practiced Ho`oponopono at Hina Mauka helping people overcome their substance abuse. She explains: Ho`oponopono is a Hawaiian way of attaining healing and well-being. It is actually more than healing and well-being. It is truly all about making everything 'very, very right'."

 

Now is our chance to move past merely having heard the term "Ho`oponopono" or only a snippet of knowledge to a fuller understanding of this important Hawaiian cultural practice.

 

See you on Saturday, March 8.th

 

Online Giving Coming Soon

 

The Cathedral is pleased to announce we will soon have an electronic option for making regular offerings. Contributions will be able to be debited automatically from your checking or savings account or processed using your credit or debit card. Our new electronic giving program offers convenience for you and much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.

 

If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. And, when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.  More details to follow.
