Cathedral of St Andrew information
King Kamehameha IV, attracted to the royal Church of England, decided to build his own cathedral and founded the Anglican Church in Hawaii in 1861. The cathedral’s cornerstone was laid in 1867, four years after his death on St Andrew’s Day – hence the church’s name. The architecture is French Gothic, utilizing stone and stained glass shipped from England. For a free lunchtime concert, the largest pipe organ in the Pacific is sonorously played every Friday at 12.15pm.
