What do you want this person to do?
The Church of the Holy Apostles invites you to review our parish profile, assembled in faith by our Search Committee, who drew upon a discernment process in which our congregation enthusiastically engaged. The profile speaks of a welcoming and loving faith community with a tradition of worship and fellowship witnessed in a belief in good works and outreach to the people of Hilo and the East Hawai‘i Island community. This is a true depiction of the parish, but not a complete one. The profile is unable to capture all the elements that make up Holy Apostles, such as the laughter carried by the Pacific trade winds flowing through the open doors of the sanctuary, or the sense of hopefulness tinged with a bit of both anxiety and excitement that always seem to accompany a change of leadership, or the growing desire to reflect God’s love in the world and to act on the charge that stems from that love to bring Christ to our sisters and brothers and them to Christ. Geographically within the Diocese of Hawai‘i, the Church of the Holy Apostles is the most distant parish from the Cathedral of St. Andrew in Honolulu and the most distant from any other parish or mission. However, spiritually we are closely engaged in the work of the Episcopal Church of Hawai‘i: sharing with our community’s hungry and homeless; grieving with the families of Puna, Orlando and Saipan; and helping develop ecumenical solutions for community issues. We, like our namesakes, the holy apostles, are not perfect; but, like them, we endeavor—with the grace and power received from the Holy Spirit—to be His “witnesses…to the ends of the earth.” Mahalo (thank you) for reviewing our profile.
