King Kamehameha IV, attracted by the royal Church of England, decided to build his own cathedral in Hawaii. Friends with Queen Victoria, he and his consort, Queen Emma, founded the Anglican Church in Hawaii in 1861. The cathedral’s cornerstone was laid in 1867, four years after the death of the king, who died on St Andrew’s Day – hence the church’s name. The architecture is French Gothic, utilizing stone and stained glass shipped from England. Historical tours usually meet by the pulpit after the 10:30am worship service on Sunday, but call ahead to confirm. For a free lunchtime concert, the largest pipe organ in the Pacific is sonorously played every Wednesday starting at 12:15pm.
