'IOLANI GUILD SPECIAL PROGRAMS & PROJECTS
The following special programs and projects are coordinated by 'Iolani Guild Chaplain, Kahu Kaleo Patterson. (Updated March 2018)
Inspired by the IG Bible Study and Hawaiian Language purpose. This project was created and
funded by the Episcopal Church National Indigenous Grant. This is an Indigenous Theology and
Leadership Training Project related to the study of the Lectionary Gospels and Baibala Hawaiian
Language. The first Makamoku workshop took place at the IG Kalema Lent Retreat in 2016. IG has
sponsored Makamoku Baibala study in other events and meetings. Baibala Pule is the name for the
Makamoku Bible Study in the prisons.
MAKAHIKI AND BAC PAC PROJECT
These projects are addressing Hawai'i Prison Reform initiatives, by providing culture based
education and religious programs in and out of the prisons. Consistent with 'Iolani Guild legacy and
purposes, IG members have been involved with this project for several years, and now this project
has become a Diocesan Prison Ministries Project. For more info see napaahao.org
