Orthodoxy In Hawaii

The presence of Orthodoxy in Hawaii dates back to the 1700’s when the first Russian envoys that stopped here on the way to or from colonies in the United States. By 1815, the first Orthodox church was erected on the island of Kaua’i. 

 During the early 20th century, a small enclave of Greeks and Russians living in Honolulu prompted passing Orthodox clergy to stop and celebrate Liturgies and other services for the growing number of Faithful. By the 1960’s, weekly lay services were being held, along with periodic Services by visiting clergy from Japan, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
