raw in that wonderful l'.ook of
Common Prayer which ia not our
book, is nof marked by tin: stamp
of any generation or any party, hut
is us much a hook of the English
speaking people as the English Bible
itself. It is no wonder that forms
of service patterned after it are so
largely used in Protestant bodies to
day. It will lead them one day,
we believe, to a fuller realization of
the ancient worship of the Church
which is so largely in the words of
the Holy Scripture. This old Church
gave to the English speaking race
that incomparable treasure the Eng
lish Bible and she gives to them
that treasury of the devotional rich
es of the ages, the Book of Common
Every portion of this building
has a meaning, telling that it is for
worship and that the Church min
isters to every event in the life of
man. There is the nave represent
ing the Church Militant, here is the
Choir representing the Church at
Rest, and yonder is the Sanctuary
which prophesies of the Church
Triumphant. The font tells us of
the entrance into the Church of
God, and this broad passage look
ing straight to the Altar tells us of
the life of man as he comes up for
Holy Confirmation, Holy Matri
mony and Holy Communion and
finally is carried here that over him
may he said the burning words of
faith in the magnificent words of
the mother Church. The House uf
Prayer has a Book of Prayer, not
ours, but for all English speaking
We said at the beginning of this
sermon that religion determined
largely the individual and national
life. Confuscianism, if it may be
called a religion, has led to the
mental stagnation of China, because
learning was merely to be able to
repeat the sayings of wise men. In
Japan reverence of the Emperor as
the son of a God has led to the
fierce devotion and patriotism of
the people. The religion of Mohomed
has made the Turk what he is. It
is the religion of the English speak
ing race for which the old Church
of the Anglo Saxon people stands
which has largely made the English
speaking race what it is. Religious
activity has always been followed
by racial progress, and revivals of
religion under Elizabeth and Victo:
ria were accompanied by brilliant
ages in literature, discovery and
art, while the periods of the later
Stewarts and the early Georges were
times of threatened decadence.
The Church of England, and the
English Bible which the Bishops
and Doctors translated, have con
tributed more largely than any other
factors to the development of the
powers of the race and its passionate
love of freedom of justice and of
rights of man as man. It was the
Archbishop of Canterbury who head
ed the barons when they wrested
the Magna Charta of our race from
.King John. It was the seven
Bishops who defied King James
when he ordered them to read a
proclamation setting aside the laws
of the realm. This deed saved the
liberties of the people from being
overthrown by autocracy and their
courage landed them in the Tower
and threatened their lives.
It is this ancient Church, a home
for whose children we bless today,
which gave us Washington, which
gave us two-thirds of the signers of
Independence, which gave us three
fourths of the members of the Con
stitutional Convention, which, gave
us manv Presidents, most of our
chief justices from Marshall to Full
er, and of which Henry Clay,
'American of Americans said that
"next to the Supreme Court the
Episcopal Church is our great bul
wark of liberty." It is not an alien
altar which we erect here. Con
gregationalists, Presbyterians and
Methodists all originated in Eng
land as well as we. This Church is
American through and through aid
was wanted in America before any
of them. Its members provided
five out of the seven in Lincoln's
War Cabinet, and Admirals and
Generals in every generation have
been largely her sons,
This, building then is a sign of
our faith in that part of the Cath
olic and. Apostolic Church carried
to Britain during the Roman period
of which history testifies and old
Churches still standing bear witness.
This Church, which when Augus
tine landed in 59G, and having
conference with seven B"itish Bish
ops, determined to co-operate with
it for the conversion of the Saxons.
This old Church which sent mis
sionaries to the continent of Europe
before Augustine landed and found
the wife of the King of Kent already
a Christian with a Church in which
she worshipped. This ancient
Church dominated by Rome during
a period of ignorance, and when
assertions went unchallenged, and
forged decretals, bolstered up claims,
until a critical age proved them
false, this Church which under
the Normans frequently had Bishops
who struggled against the papacy,
and which finally when the oppor
tunity was presented, due to the
quarrel of the King with the Pope,
by a resolution of Convocation peti
tioned the Parliament and king to
declare that the Bishop of Rome
had no more power in England
than any other foreign Bishop. It
is this ancient, historical Church in
its American Branch for which this
And now as to local history.
Several attempts were made prior
to 1862 to procure American Clergy
of this Church for work in the
Islands- Then the Church of Eng
land and the American Church
agreed to undertake a joint work in
Hawaii. In response to the repeat
ed and urgent requests of King
Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma,
and others, in 18(50 a Conference
was held in London by the Bishop
of California and the Bishop of
New York on the one hand, and
the Bishop of London and Oxford
on the other. Two or three clergy
were to be sent out from England
and the same number by the Church
in America. This arrangement was
made impossible by the Civil War
from 1861 to 1865. But in October
1865 Bishop Staley went to the
United States to attend the General
Convention of the Church held that
year in Philadelphia. Bishop Staley
presented a letter from Kameha
meha V asking for aid from the
American Church. The House of
Bishops passed favorably upon the
idea and the Board of Missions at
once pledged itself to pay half the
stipends of two American Clergy,
The first American who came to the
Islands under this arrangement was
the Rev. Geo. B. Whipple, brother
of the Bishop of Minnesota, who
opened work in Wailuku early in
1866. He collected in this locality
8900 and the King deeded to the
Church an excellent site for build
ing consisting of nearly two acres of
land. Early in his life Mr- Whip
ple had come to the Islands as a
sailor and was familiar with the
Hawaiian language. A day school
was soon started by Mr. Whipple
and many who became prominent
on the Island of Maui and elsewhere
received their first training here.
The house now occupied by Mr-
and Mrs. Lufkin was built by Mr.
Whipple. When it was renovated
a few years ago the mark G. B. W.
was still upon the lieiuns, It is of
interest that they were lx)th educat
ed in Bishop Whipple's schools.
Mr. Whipple hold services at
Ulupalakua and a letter from Mrs.
Whipple states that Captain McKee
had the Church at Wailuku ceiled
and painted at his own expense."
Mrs. Whipple in writing of the
second visit of Bishop Staley to
Wailuku in 1808 writes: "The
visit of Queen Emma and her suite
to Wailuku and the visitation of the
Bishop occured in May. Her majesty
accompanied by His excellency
Nahaolelua, governor of this Island,
and the Hon. Col. Kalakaua arrived
on Tuesday May 14. The natives
soon began to flock to the Queen
with their offerings. It was quite
touching to see them go by with
their gifts of eggs, bananas, fowls,
fish, berries, sugar cane, taro, etc.,
to lay at the feet of their chief.'
Mr. Whipple returned to Minne
sota in 1872, and this was the end
of any arrangement with the Amer
The Bishop who succeeded Bishop
Staley found it diflicult to get men
or money for the work. If things
had been different the work at
Wailuku would no doubt have
flourished, instead of which it was
frequently for years without regular
ministrations, many services at in
tervals given by the clergyman at
Lahaina. If the school and Church
had been kept up it would have
been a strong power for good in' the
It should be remarked hero that
Mrs. Whipple in a letter states that
Mr. Whipple held the first regular
English services in Wailuku, but
towards the end of the year of his
arrival, the Hawaiian Board com
menced English services. These
were conducted with long vacancies
until nearly eight years after Canon
Ault came here when the Union
Church was reopened.
In 1878 the Rev. Sydney Wilbur
was licensed to officiate at Wailuku.
In 1880 Mr. Wilbur left for Cali
fornia and the Rev. Chas. E. Groser
was sent here. In 1886 the Rev.
Mr. Groser left. Both Mr. Wilbur
and Mr. Groser were Americans.
In 1889 the Rev: Vincent II. Kit-
cat was licensed to officiate at Wai
luku, and in 1898 Canon Ault
received the same license At the
request of the people of Wailuku,
including the manager of the plant
ation, Canon Ault came to Wailuku
to live in 1900, giving up work at
Lahaina altogether in 1901. The
history of events since that time are
familiar to those present.. During
the first few years of his residence
there were many times when the
discouragements were great, but
whenever offers came to Canon Ault
to give him other work. Jie always
said it was not yet time tot him to
leave. , .. .. - .
It is not necessary for me -tQ ''fell
you how fully he had the confidence
and esteem of the community.
Practically all the English speaking
children of Wailuku were in the
Sunday School and nearly all Eng
lish speaking people who profess
the Apostles' Creed had an interest
in the Church.
For some time before any steps
were taken Canon Ault had it in
mind to make a beginning for the
erection of a Church. On consulta
tion with Cation Ault I advised the
Guild to start a fund for the new
Church Building and that the East
er offerings be given to the same
end. As I look back I can truly
say that what has been done is truly
wonderful and I most heartily con?
gratulate you that you have brought
your desires and efforts to so pleas
ing and substantial conclusion.
The substantial character of the
building proclaims your faith in the
permanence of that for which the
Cljurch stands. The memorial gifts
which are in place and yet to come
proclaim it a shrine in which shall
be remembered the hallowed dead.
Your offerings of money and ser
vices stand in these walls and fur
nishings a memorial of your willing
gifts. Let this be a holy place for
you all, a place of God. A place
where souls shall seek- God's pres
ence, a place where children shall
be brought for baptism, where souls
will seek confirmation and where
hundreds will come and kneel,. and
reach out their hands and hearts
for the bread of life.
The world needs the truths for
which this Church stands. These
truths are fundamental and im
pregnable faith in God the Father.
faith in Jesus Christ who manifest
ed God to the world, faith in the
Holy Spirit which works in the
hearts of men and in society, faith
in the Church which brings men to
God and God to men. History
shows that religious bodies which
deny Christ as God fade and die.
You need this faith in your daily
toils and temptations, and sorrows
and joys and you need the worship
which you may engage in here.
May this Church be a blessing to
this community, - may it be a gate'
way to heaven. May it be to your
sons and daughters a bulwark
against indifference, unbelief and
immorality. May it always be to
you a place of joy and peace, a
family home, in w hich and concern
ing which the ppirit of unselfishness
and sacrifice, of bearing and fore-
bearing shall make for peace and
good will. One by birth into the
family of God, one by confession of
Apostolic faith by the grace of God
and the Holy Spirit may we be so
led that after the changes and
chances of this mortal life, we may
all meet in that house of many
mansions of our Common Father
and of our Brother and Redeemer,
there to see face to face and to know
even as we are known.
