Aloha & Welcome!
A Beacon of Hope, A Call to Serve
Aloha, welcome to our website. We are glad you found us! We invite you to join us at one of our Sunday services, our Thursday evening Jazz Vespers service, or at one of our ministries throughout the week. Whatever your path has been and wherever you have wandered, you are loved by God and we welcome you! St. Peter's was organized as a church on Palm Sunday 1887, when a group of Chinese Christians who had immigrated to Hawai`i, gathered to give thanks to God. The church grew quickly, becoming a source of strength and outreach to the Chinese immigrant community. Today we worship in English and are a Hawai`i "mixed plate" community of folks who treasure the past while embracing the future. We gather for worship in the liturgical tradition of the Episcopal Church to be strengthened for service in the world as followers of Jesus. We strive to grow in our baptismal vows to work for justice and peace among all people, respecting the dignity of every human being. We would love to have you join us in that calling as God's people. Explore our website and check out our Facebook page for more information. For more from Pastor Diane, visit our Rector's Message.

Jazz Vespers at St. Peter's
There will be no Jazz Vespers on April 18.
Please join us for our Maundy Thursday service.
Join us for Jazz Vespers every Thursday evening of the year. During Lent, we offer "Lenten Jazz Vespers" a seasonal variation on our regular Jazz Vespers. Our regular musicians are jazz artists Reggie Padilla (Tenor Sax), Dan Del Negro (Piano), Jon Hawes (Bass), and Starr Kalahiki (Vocals). Experience a unique mix of prayer, scripture, reflection and music in the beauty of St. Peter's worship space. For more information, visit the Jazz Vespers page by clicking here. Jazz Vespers is about 45 minutes followed by a light meal and fellowship in the Parish Hall.
Read reflections from our curate, Rev. Jazzy, and look back at last year’s major repairs and renovation of St. Peter’s 104 year old sanctuary!
