St. Andrew's Cathedral - Review
Saint Andrew's Cathedral is home to the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii.
The church was initiated in 1860’s on the request of Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma. The king wanted to establish a place to worship the Anglican tradition. His wish remained unfulfilled since he died before ground-breaking. Today, the place is a cathedral of the Episcopal Church, popular for its French Gothic architecture and the floor-to-ceiling stained glass art that features the European explorers who visited the Hawaiian Islands.
The external architecture of the place is just as gorgeous and is perfect for a mid-day stroll.

St. Andrew's Cathedral, Honolulu Reviews
I went to school at St Andrew's Priory, so suffice it to say, I spent a lot of time here in the Cathedral. But on this visit, I was bringing a Scottish Heather plant given for my father's funeral & I just wanted some peace. And I was not let down. The doors were open, the cathedral empty except for the organist practicing. It was as beautiful as I remembered, and a perfect place to spend a few minutes on reflection. Of course I will be back.
Nice old Catholic church in the middle of the beach area.
A beautiful 18 century Hawaiian Catholic Church
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.
