Chaplain's Corner
with Reverend Dale Burke

Welcome and aloha to HPU’s new and returning students! Do you need help finding your way around or getting connected?

As the University Chaplain, I am always available to chat about any issue or concern that would help you make your adjustment to HPU easier and more enjoyable.

This is shaping up to be a terrific year, and I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.

In addition to the great beaches, Honolulu offers a wealth of diversity to keep your spiritual edge sharp. Surrounding the downtown and Hawai‘i Loa campuses are churches and temples of every faith and denomination. They enthusiastically open their doors to all HPU students and love having you be a part of their communities while you are here. Come by my office anytime (UB 1506, ph. 544-9394), and I will be happy to connect you with the closest house of worship of your faith. In addition, there is an active Roman Catholic Student Association and an HPU Christian Fellowship group on campus ready to welcome you and help you find a meaningful place in the HPU community.

Every Wednesday from noon to12:30 there is an informal, nondenominational chapel service at Warmer Auditorium (in the Penthouse of the library building at 1060 Bishop St.). All are invited to share a half hour of song and inspiration led by student leaders and myself. If you can play the guitar or other musical instrument, bring it.

New this year as part of Orientation Week will be a non-denominational worship service at the Hawai‘i Loa campus on Sept. 1. Come check it out! What a great way to get the semester off to a good start! Refreshments will be served, and you can find out more about our local churches.
With the Lord’s strength any hurdle can be overcome. Welcome, and have a great year!
