The goals of Global Ministry are to promote justice and mercy in a few areas of the world where we believe we can make a difference. Our mission focuses on short-term projects (specific and limited to responding to emergency needs) and building long-term, sustainable, mutual ministries where possible.
In recent years, our Global Ministries team has partnered with Sabeel, FOSNA and the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem in an effort to promote peace and to provide support to those in-need during the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Through their work, they've also been able to bring guest speakers from all over the world to Hawai'i so our community can gain a better understanding of the conflict.
Residential Youth Services and Empowerment / YO! House
Once a month, a group of parishioners gather to prepare meals for the disenfranchised youth that are part of the RYSE program. RYSE provides a safe shelter for these youth, and they offer employment and educational opportunities to prepare them for their bright futures.
Hawai'i Meals on Wheels
More than 25 years ago The Parish of St. Clement’s organized a Meals on Wheels program with five nearby churches. The clients were home-bound persons who were mostly frail and elderly. Six years ago the successor organization, Hawaii Meals on Wheels, asked us to volunteer again. We responded and now have volunteers who cover a route in McCully and another in Kaimuki. Volunteers are asked to serve one day a month from approximately 10:00 to 11:30 am. Clients are friendly and appreciate having a hot meal delivered to their door. The HMoW agency provides training for this rewarding community service.
In the past, our outreach teams have also contributed to Episcopal Relief and Development, the Episcopal Church's worldwide relief agency. We encourage you to do the same!
Food Distribution + Financial Assistance
With this ministry, we aim to provide food to people in our community when their supplies may be running short. Canned goods are donated by parishioners, supplemented by purchases from the Food Bank and Costco.
The Food Distribution Schedule is as follows:
No enrollment is required, but we do ask that you answer a few basic questions for the Hawai'i Foodbank and show ID.
Every Wednesday from 10a-12p, we also offer financial assistance to those that live in Clean & Sober houses or reside within 968... zip codes. We will write one $50 check per year to your landlord or HECo. In order to receive assistance, you must provide ID and your rental agreement or your latest HECo bill.
The Hawai'i Foodbank also uses our parking lot on the Third Friday of every month to distribute food to seniors in our community. Their Kūpuna Box program is run by their staff members and volunteers, so, in order to register and receive a box once a month, you must reach out to them at (808)954-7867 or (808)836-3600.
If you or someone you know is in need of assistance, you are welcome to stop by on one of our distribution days for food or financial assistance. We also recommend that you visit the Aloha United Way website or call 2-1-1 to get a better idea of all the opportunities for assistance available to you, island-wide.
We also support the following local agencies:
