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.
