Children’s Outreach

In January, 2012, the heart and soul of our Pacific Island Ministry, Fr. Saimone Lino, died suddenly. After much grieving and prayer, with the kind and generous consent of our Bishop, Fr. Saimone’s family has taken up the plow and continued his work among the children in need. Wife Fane and children Anaseini, Viliami and Joshua have been tireless in carrying on oiur outreach work among the immigrant youth and their families.

With the financial assistance of the Episcopal Diocese, the Honolulu Community Foundation and the congregation of St. Elizabeth’s, the Linos are actively involved in providing a variety of programs for our brothers and sisters in need. These include music lessons, cooking lessons, arts and crafts, reading and writing time, sewing, Micronesian wood crafts and work in our community garden.

These efforts are not limited to St. Elizabeth’s. The Linos are active with St. Peter’s, St. Mary’s outreach efforts and with St. Nick’s in Kapolei.

The program at St. E’s serves over 40 children on any given day. The summer program provides structured activities on Wednesday and Friday from 10-2, with unstructured activities all day Tuesday and Thursday. During the school year, a Wednesday through Saturday program runs.

On Sundays, Ajaon Chen, a truly gifted music teacher, provides a children’s music/choir hour for the children. The kids learn simple instruments and learn how to sing in harmony with one another.

The Linos live in the Parish rectory, the first clergy family to live in the rectory for many decades. Their presence in the neighborhood has done much to foster trusting and loving relationships with those the Pacific Island Ministry serves.

The Holy Spirit blesses us each day at St. E’s! Come by and feel the breeze!

Day of Pentecost

On the fiftieth day of Easter we celebrate the Spirit, through whom and in whom the people of God are created and re-created. As you can see from the pictures below, St. Elizabeth’s is awash in an ocean of RED as we celebrate the birthday of the Church.
