October 21 and 22 was Pride Weekend in Honolulu, and on the Sunday at 11:30 am we celebrated Pride with a review of where the Episcopal Church has been, as well as the current work ahead of us. The Rev'd Canon Brian Grieves, former Peace and Justice Office of the Episcopal Church, along with the rector, Father Paul Lillie, facilitated this forum when we gave thanks for the LGBTQ community and offered our support and advocacy.
This Aloha Hour after High Mass was hosted by the St. Mark's Choir, featuring an array of savory and sweet treats. The choir continues to grow, and the Aloha Hour was a fundraiser for the choir robe fund. Donations defrayed the cost of new cassocks and surplices for new choir members.
