ECWK & Hanapepe Art Night
After the horrific fires on Maui this past August, Kahu Kerry+ and several members of our congregation met to see what we could do to help our brothers and sisters over there who were hurting so badly. In addition to traveling to the Valley Isle with a team of physicians and volunteers, it was felt we could do something more, something more ongoing. Thus, was borne the idea of a food booth at the weekly Friday Night Art Stroll in Hanapepe Town. Julie Lagazo volunteered to cook and organize it along with her family and able assistant Dailyn Sagucio. Julie is known for her delicious Filipino food, so she volunteered her kitchen space and time to make pancit, cascarone, banana lumpia and other goodies every Friday. She’s taught several members how to make banana lumpia including Kahu+ and some of the school children. Many of the bananas are donated by Pablo & Sally Valdez, grown on their Kekaha farm. We now have many volunteers who cook, pack, transport, sell, and clean up every Friday. All the food is offered for donation. It has become so popular that residents and visitors alike are disappointed if we run out early, which happens often. More than $8,000 has been received to date (December 1). The recipients include ‘A Cup of Cold Water’ (the Episcopal Church on Maui relief organization), our own children’s choir ‘Kumu Ola’, and the Anglican hospital in Gaza which serves people of all faiths and has been damaged in the ongoing conflict. So next time you are in Hanapepe on a Friday night, please stop by between 5 pm and 8 pm and say aloha to our hard-working volunteers and try some delicious food. We are near the old Hanapepe Theater.
We offer 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.
Ilokano language services are every 2nd Sunday of the month.
Pray for the people of Ukraine. Pray for all people undergoing suffering around the world from recent natural disasters.
