St. Mark's was founded in memory of Queen Emma who died on St. Mark's Day. The Feast of the Holy Sovereigns (Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV) is November 28, and the Episcopal Diocese of Hawai‘i always celebrates this feast on the Last Sunday after Pentecost. November 28 is also the dedication feast of our current church building.
