Feast of Father Hiram Hisanori Kano

Today, the Episcopal church commemorates the life and witness of Fr. Hiram Hisanori Kano. Fr. Kano, known as the Saint of Nebraska, served as a missionary among Japanese Americans in Nebraska and to American soldiers imprisoned for being AWOL during World War II while he himself was imprisoned, along with a great deal more service and ministry in the state and world.

Almighty God, who has reconciled the world to yourself through Christ: Entrust to your Church the ministry of reconciliation, as you did to your servant Hiram Hisanori Kano, and raise up ambassadors for Christ to proclaim your love and peace wherever conflict and hatred divide; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Trinity Cathedral gives thanks for his life and witness at 12:10pm today with the Holy Eucharist in the chapel (entrance off Capitol street). All are welcome.

Christ the King Sunday

Christ the King Sunday

Feast celebrated on the last Sunday of the liturgical year. It celebrates Christ's messianic kingship and sovereign rule over all creation.

Marion Hatchett notes that the Prayer Book collect for Proper 29, the last Sunday of the church year, is a "somewhat free" translation of the collect of the Feast of Christ the King in the Roman Missal. This collect prays that God, "whose will it is to restore all things in your well-beloved Son, the King of kings and Lord of lords," will "Mercifully grant that the peoples of the earth, divided and enslaved by sin, may be freed and brought together under his most gracious rule" (BCP, p. 236).
