Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV invited the church of England to come to Hawaii to establish an Anglican Church in the Kingdom. Impressed with the liturgy and spirituality of the Anglican Church, they established the Church in the Kingdom. The King translated the Book of Common Prayer into Hawaiian. Queen Emma was noted for her charitable and compassionate acts on behalf of her subjects.
Good Shepherd was established in 1866 on land given to them by the Sovereigns. The Episcopal Church celebrates their life and legacy on the last Sunday of November of every year.
We celebrate with the presence of Ali'i from the Royal Order of Kamehameha and the sounding of the pu, and traditional oli'i (chants)
