We are one congregation with two worship spaces: St. John's in Eleʻele and St. Paul's in Kekaha. Both churches serve the West Kauaʻi community. We welcome visitors to join our ʻohana for Sunday worship.
The Rev. Robert Carver was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ.
He graduated from Cal State University at Fullerton with a BA in Psychology, and from Church Divinity School of the Pacific with an M.Div.
He was a full-time parochial minister from September, 1971 to June, 2002. After retiring from full-time ministry, he worked in nursing. He earned an Associate Degree in Nursing, and then a Master of Nursing degree. He was a full-time nursing instructor from 2010 to 2020.
Bob & Kris, their children and grandchildren have been visiting Kaua’i since 1995. (His parents and grandparents were visiting Honolulu going back almost 100 years.) Nothing against the other islands, but their favorite is Kaua’i. They live most of the year in Tacoma, WA but spend the winters in Kapa'a.
Bob considers it a privilege and a great honor to serve St. John's, ‘Ele’ele and St. Paul's, Kekaha during most of February.
Coming February 28: Fr. Bruce & Thayer Woodcock
Worshiping During a Pandemic:
We continue to follow Covid safety guidelines: masks, social distancing, hand sanitizer, cleaning, etc. If you forget your mask we have extras for you! During communion, wafers only, no wine is offered. Unfortunately, there are no aloha hours till further notice. We offer Holy Eucharist most every Sunday at 8:00 a.m. at St. Paul’s, Kekaha, and 10:00 a.m. at St. John’s in Eleʻele.
For now, the monthly Ilokano service is suspended due to the inter-island quarantine.
We wish you and yours a blessed Lenten season. Please visit the announcements page for updates on our Lenten schedule of services.
