Available for Purchase:

Hawaiian-Language Book of Common Prayer & Na 'Euanelio Hemolele

The Office of the Bishop has made available two Hawaiian-language books to enhance your worship experience.  Both books make exquisite gifts:  

  • Cloth-bound in red with gold foil stamping, the attractive Hawaiian-Language Book of Common Prayer contains over 400 pages of translated biblical scripture, liturgical prayers, and orders service, including King Kamehameha IV's Preface. King Kamehameha IV translated the Book of Common Prayer into Hawaiian language as an act of personal piety and Christian devotion.  His translation remains a milestone in Hawaiian literature and a valuable resource for anyone studying the language. This limited edition reprint of the prayer book was issued by the Episcopal Church in Hawai'i to celebrate its sesquicentennial that took place in 2012.
  • Na 'Euanelio Hemolele, is a lectionary-size book containing the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, in the Hawaiian-language, complete with diacritical marks.  The book was a project of the Rev. Cn. Malcolm Naea Chun, 20 years in the making, and whose publication was funded by the Diocese's Commission on Native Hawaiian Ministry.  The book was originally released in 2003, and is bound in white hard-cover with gold foil stamping. 

The books are $30.00 each with a special $50 discounted price if purchased as a set.  Shipping is $6.00 per book, but arrangements can be made for pick-up.  Please contact Charmaine Ito, Office Manager, to arrange a time.
