Welcoming You with the Spirit of Aloha
"You go out to my people as God's messengers...Our beloved Church regards her children as having bodies as well as souls to be cared for, and sanctions the consecration of these and of all that is beautiful in nature and in art to the service of God" 
-- Queen Emma
The Rev. Andrew McMullen, Third Rector of St. Michael and All Angels

On March 3, 2018, after prayer, reflection and discernment, the Vestry elected to call Father Andrew to serve as the third Rector of the parish. Bishop Fitzpatrick consented to this call, and Father Andrew, following his own prayer and discernment, has accepted the call. He will become Rector effective April 1, 2018. Many thanks to all who shared their voice, and lifted up the parish, Father Andrew and his family in prayer during the discernment process! Arrangements are being made for "The Renewal of Ministry with the Welcoming of a New Rector" service and we will be sharing these details, and others, with the parish in the near future.
Weekly Announcements

Adult Formation
Due to the Bishop's Visitation, Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, we will not have our regular Sunday adult formation on March 18, March 25 and April 1.  We will resume on Sunday, April 8, when we begin a several week series on comparative religions.  We will explore the other main faith traditions of the world - Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam.  We hope that our overview will include some of the significant history, major themes and belief structures of each faith, with some discussion as to how these religions are similar to Christianity and each other, and how they are different.  We hope you will join us after our break!
Bishop Visit
The Right Reverend Robert Fitzpatrick, Bishop of the Diocese of Hawaii, will be making his annual, formal visit to St. Michael and All Angels on Saturday, March 17 and Sunday, March 18. He will celebrate and preach at our 5:30pm, 7:30am and 9:45am worship, with receptions following each service. This is an important day in the life of our parish as we remember our identity in the larger and greater life of the Church. It is also a great opportunity to meet the Bishop (or say hello if you already have!). We hope all will plan on joining us!
Sunday Reception
Please join us after after our 9:45am service for a reception with the Bishop; we welcome any potluck salad sides!

We also look forward to some tasty dishes for our Easter Sunday receptions. If you have a favorite side dish, please bring it to share!
