Alii Sunday - Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole

March 25, 2018
Alii Sundays are among the many long and honored traditions of Kawaiahao Church, which began about 1914. In the 1970's our people were embarking on a tidal wave of change. In the chaos of circumstance and sensing the urgency to unite Hawaii's people and rekindle their strength and purpose in Ke Akua, the Reverend Dr. Abraham Akaka rejuvenated these services as part of the larger cultural awakening already taking place. He reminded us of the importance “to unite as the people of Hawaii and to recognize the leadership our Alii gave us as Christians.” We celebrate eight Alii Sundays which are held as part of a larger series of celebrations recognized by the Benevolent Royal Societies, Alii Trusts and the Hawaiian Civic Clubs of which always occurs on or just before the birthday of the Alii. We invite you to join us.

The Societies and Hawaiian Civic Clubs proceed into the main sanctuary at 9:00 a.m. Representatives of selective groups pay tribute to the Alii being honored.
