Welcome! Come and get to know us.
Who We Are
St. Peter's Episcopal Church is located in the heart of downtown Honolulu on the island of Oahu, Hawai‘i. Founded in 1887, St. Peter's has been part of the downtown Honolulu community for over 125 years. The historic sanctuary built 100 years old provides a beautiful sacred space for reflection and prayer with its unique stained glass windows and koa pews. St. Peter’s is a multi-generational, multi-cultural community committed to living the Gospel of Jesus Christ through vibrant outreach, ministries, and worship.

Above is a photo of our long time member, Jerry Liu. He is sporting one of our knitted caps that we made. At our worship service on Sept. 14, the congregation joined in blessing this year's labor of "knitted" love that will be distributed and sent out. See our list of projects to below:
* hats and scarves for the Seamen's Church Institute
* lap robes for Leahi Hospital
* chemo caps for the oncology dept at Kaise, the Ovarian Cancer Support Group, and kids at Tripler
* afghans for Warm Up America
* caps and scarves for flood victims in Minot, ND
* caps and scarves for kids on a Indian Reservation in South Dakota
* birds nest for a bird rehabilitation facility in San Francisco
* baby blankets, prayer shawls, afghans for members of the congregation
Please thank these dedicated members for the ministry they provide on behalf of the St. Peter's community through their knitting. If you are interested in being part of this group, they meet the second and fourth Saturday mornings in the Aloha Room. Speak with Nancy Rowe or click here for more details.
We hope EVERYONE will attend this gathering. This is a VERY IMPORTANT gathering of our congregation as we look at who we are, who we hope to be moving into the next 100 years, and the ministry we are ready to embrace. This includes repair and upgrading of our facilities. We need your input and vision! Jerry Campbell, our consultant with the Episcopal Church Foundation, will be with us to lead this important conversation. Interspersed with the conversation, we will have food and fun! Please come!

Stir It Up Sunday! (Sept 7th)
As part of "Stir It Up" Sunday, we kicked off our Fall/Winter activities! Between services, we held a Ministry Fair- each ministry is unique and we hope you found something that suits you! We also had a special book signing and free gift from Author and Parishioner, Fred Okumura. Meanwhile, our preteen group, The ROCK, was busy with their own Open House of their newly renovated space- The Son/Sun Room. Mahalo to everyone who helped put together this event and continue to share their gifts, talents, or time with the St. Peter's family. Stay updated with us by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter! Aloha!
