On the 100th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Lili’uokalani’s passing this year, the Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii will pay tribute to the Queen by conducting a special 100th anniversary service in her honor.
On May 19, 1901, Queen Lili’uokalani attended Shinran Shonin’s Birthday Service at the former Fort Lane temple. As part of the tribute service, there will be a special “Living History” presentation by Jackie Pualani Johnson, retired drama professor of the University of Hawaii at Hilo, who will portray Her Majesty reminiscing about that auspicious day in 1901. Also in attendance will be special guests from the Hawaiian community and many others.
