Saint Andrew's Cathedral, Honolulu

(4.6/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
The Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew, also commonly known as St. Andrew's Cathedral, is a cathedral of the Episcopal Church in the United States located in the State of Hawaii. Originally the seat of the Anglican Church of Hawaii, it is now the home of the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii. It is affiliated with St. Andrew's Schools, which comprises of the main girls' K-12 school, the coeducational Queen Emma Preschool and a boys' preparatory school (elementary).HistoryKamehameha IV and Queen Emma, his queen consort, were devout members of the Church of England led by their good friend Queen Victoria. At their request, Thomas Nettleship Staley was appointed bishop in 1862. Inspired to build a place of worship in the Anglican tradition, Kamehameha IV commissioned the construction of what would later become the Cathedral of Saint Andrew. However, the king died on the feast day of Saint Andrew in 1863 before ground-breaking. Kamehameha V, the king's brother, took over the project and laid the cornerstone in honor of his predecessor on March 5, 1867. The cathedral was designed by the London architects William Slater and R. H. Carpenter, and the building process was overseen by their chief assistant Benjamin Ingelow.

  • ステンドグラスが素晴らしい。特に何もない時間帯は解放されていますので、是非。
  • The Cathedral boasts 8 tower change ringing bells that were a redundant set in England. Experienced ringers are always welcome. The Aeolian Skinner pipe organ's 133 ranks are approximately one third Walker digital which are seamlessly integrated into the sound. Services have varied over the years anywhere from traditional "middle of the road" Episcopal to fairly high church with many chanted prayers. The church has an excellent choir which sings classic choral literature. The church bulletins are informative and will guide you through the services. There is a monthly Choral Evensong Sertvice which is almost all sung. It's on my "must see" list whenever I'm in Honolulu.
  • Beautiful place with it's deep roots in Hawaiian History.
  • A holy sacred worship space.
  • Both there in the Basilica Cathedral stained glass but very large stained-glass Windows in the Cathedral's main entrance, seen from the inside out and is a sight to see
