All Episcopal Church Women in Province VIII are welcome and invited to attend our Virtual Annual Meeting.
On Friday evening, August 7th, join our Pau Hana (Happy Hour) to mix and mingle in the Spirit of Aloha. Island dress optional. We’ll provide the recipes for authentic Hawaiian cocktails and appetizers (pu pu) and other Hawaiian goodies on this website soon.
On Saturday, August 8th, tune in at 9 am to learn about the history of the Episcopal Church in Hawaii, including the story of King Kamehameha and Queen Emma, honored on their own Feast Day on November 28th in the Book of Common Prayer. The Diocese of Hawaii has made a great video we will be sharing.
We’ll have a business meeting including short presentations from our affiliated organizations including UTO, DOK, CPC and GFS. We will elect new officers for the 2021-2024 Triennium, learn to Hula with “Hularobics”, practice Hawaiian sayings, attend a Forgiveness Workshop led by former National ECW Chaplain Rev. Mary Janda (Diocese of Utah), learn about building up ECW at the Diocesan level from Province VIII President Evita Krislock and V.P. Martha Estes, and end the day with an Aloha Worship Service.
