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.
Rev Pete Wright and his wife Penny (pictured), originally scheduled to serve during the summer, are serving ECWK for December and January. They are from Southern California and have ministered here several times in past years. We are conducting weekly Holy Eucharist services. Fr. Pete will officiate our two Christmas services.
Mahalo to Kahu Kawika Jackson and his wife Muriel as they drove to St. John's one Sunday in September to do a special noon Eucharist for us, after his morning services at All Saints. Morning prayer was held most Sundays over the summer, led by Lynn Barker and Greg Williams, with beautiful acoustic guitar music at both services by Ross Barker.
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. We will be offering Holy Eucharist 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 & safe Advent and Christmas season and Hau'oli Makahiki Hou (Happy New Year)!
