Due to Covid-19, all Church activities, Bicentennial and Youth events in Honolulu are postponed.
As Hawaii has started to reopen in various stages these past weeks, we want to update you on our reopening status. We are taking detailed measures informed by the most current guidelines to ensure the reasonable safety of all who serve and attend while aiming for a welcoming and worshipful experience.
As we are all aware, the nature of guidelines, information, and conditions change frequently, so should we need to make adjustments on a date or other critical information, we will communicate this.
Once we reopen, we will continue to offer livestream via Kawaiahao Church TV as an option.
As stated, we are carefully considering options and approaches based on the guidance of local and state governing authorities and medical professionals. While we do long to see you face-to-face, we commit to gathering again as a body once we can do so in a safe and welcoming way.

Ali‘i Sundays are among the many long and honored traditions of Kawaiaha‘o Church, which began about 1914. In the 1970’s our people were embarking on a tidal wave of change. In the chaos of circumstance and sensing the urgency to unite Hawai‘i’s people and rekindle their strength and purpose in Ke Akua, the Reverend Dr. Abraham Akaka rejuvenated these services as part of the larger cultural awakening already taking place. He reminded us of the importance “to unite as the people of Hawai‘i and to recognize the leadership our Ali‘i gave us as Christians.”
We celebrate eight Ali‘i Sundays which are held as part of a larger series of celebrations recognized by the Benevolent Royal Societies, Ali‘i Trusts and the Hawaiian Civic Clubs of which always occurs on or just before the birthday of the Ali‘i.
UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO COVID-19, ALL ALI'I SUNDAY EVENTS ARE POST-PHONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
