Good Shepherd Episcopal Church - Maui
Aloha nui loa! Thank you for visiting our website and welcome to Good Shepherd Episcopal Church on the island of Maui in the State of Hawai'i.
We are celebrating our Sesquicentennial this year! 150 years ago Fr. Whipple arrived from Minnesota and built a church on land given to the new Anglican Church in Hawaii by King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma. The Sovereigns had been impressed with the symbolism, artistry and worship of the Church of England as guests of Queen Victoria and invited the Anglican Church, (now the Episcopal Church, USA) to Hawaii.
We hope we can minister to and serve you. Perhaps you are new to Maui and Hawaii? Experience what it means to be kama'aina (local) with people who can introduce you to the ways of the island. Perhaps you are facing struggles and challenges and need a supportive ohana (family) who can support you with prayer and community? Perhaps you long for a place of deep spirituality, where you can follow Jesus without judgement or shame?
Perhaps you have felt an itch to explore worship which is more sensuous, symbolic and liturgical? "Episcopal" might not roll off of the tongue, but it is basically "mere Christianity" as C. S. Lewis described it. We often describe as the "middle way". (click above for more information)
