KMC contractor found buried concrete in the back
where the old Facility building once was. 

Please pardon the noise
when they chip out the week of April 13.

The noise level should be similar
to last demo they did last month.

Sorry about this inconvenience.


Please be careful if you are walking near
the Women’s Building

We are currently undergoing concrete repairs to the roof. 

There is yellow caution tape blocking off
where it could be hazardous.
The repairs will be for several weeks,
so please be aware of areas that are taped off.  



Please be careful when walking into Atherton Chapel. 
The concrete walkway has become uneven. 

The repair is of top priority and repairs are scheduled
for the week of 
April 27 – May 1 - see below.

In the meantime we have marked the area with a cone.  

Please be careful!


On the week of April 27 – May 1,
we will be repairing the concrete walkways
fronting Atherton Memorial Chapel and
curbs in the Punahou Parking Lot. 
We will try to ensure that we limit the disruption. 

We have tried to schedule construction to ensure
we have very little disruption to operations,
but the contractors are not always available
at the dates and times we have available.

Preschool parents:  
We will need your patience and understanding. 
Drop off should have very little or no disruption.

Pick up will be a challenge.


Central Union Church, organized in 1887, 
traces its roots to the Seamen's Bethel, founded in 1833.

The Bethel began the earliest regular church services
in English in the Hawaiian Kingdom.

In 1924, Central Union Church,
also known as the "Church in a Garden",
moved to its present location on Beretania Street.
