All Are Welcome!
We welcome all to worship with us and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ!
We are a community of faith that gathers together regularly to worship Almighty God - our Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier; a group committed to sharing God's infinite and redeeming love, grace and forgiveness with each other and with our neighbors near and far.
The church ministers to the physical and spiritual needs of all. It is an active mission church in the Diocese of Hawai`i, with a full-time Vicar, the Rev. Robin Taylor.
Christ Memorial Episcopal Church is one of the most picturesque Episcopal churches in the Hawaiian Islands, and is recommended in many tourist guides as a "stopping place" for visitors. It is noted for its use of native lava stone in its construction, and the magnificent stained glass windows that were crafted in England.
The Season of Epiphany
We are entering the Epiphany season -- four to nine weeks, from the Feast of the Epiphany (Jan. 6) through the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. The length of the season varies according to the date of Easter. The gospel stories of this season describe various events that manifest the divinity of Jesus. The coming of the Magi is celebrated on the Epiphany. The Baptism of our Lord is observed on the Sunday after Epiphany. The gospels for the other Sundays of the Epiphany season describe the wedding at Cana, the calling of the disciples, and various miracles and teachings of Jesus. The Last Sunday after the Epiphany is always devoted to the Transfiguration. Jesus' identity as the Son of God is dramatically revealed in the Transfiguration gospel, as well as the gospel of the baptism of Christ. We are called to respond to Christ in faith through the showings of his divinity recorded in the gospels of the Epiphany season.
EPISCOPAL MIGRATION MINISTRIES PRAYER FOR SYRIA
God our strength and our redeemer,
We ask for your loving presence and for your peace to be with the people of Syria, of all religious traditions and of none. Be with those in positions of leadership, that their decisions may hasten peace and bring an end to violence. Be with those who are in fear for their safety and their lives. Be with those who have lost their homes, livelihoods, and loved ones. Give them strength and courage.
And be with us, as we listen and discern your call to us. Equip us and empower us to be witnesses to your love -- as advocates and as servants, as ministers of welcome and of hope for Syrians and all those displaced by war and violence.
In your holy name we pray, Amen.
