… making the faith journey of our generation, and of future generations, possible.

On the seventeenth of October 1986, Ernest K. Kai wrote a letter to the Very Reverend Hollinshead T. Knight, a former Dean of the Cathedral of St. Andrew, Honolulu stating that he would very much like to establish a speaker program at the Cathedral of St. Andrew in memory of Peggy, his wife.

“She was always interested in hearing different people speak at the Cathedral,” he wrote, “ and I believe it would be a very worthwhile thing to perpetuate a program that would regularly bring in well-known, thought-provoking individuals to speak. ...I intend to support the speakers program by establishing the Margaret ‘Peggy’ Kai Memorial Fund... .  I want to have a program that will be useful and worthwhile and will attract people to St. Andrew’s and, hopefully, will catch the interest of the community.”

The Margaret “Peggy” Kai Memorial Fund sponsors a program to bring well-known, thought-provoking individuals to speak at the Cathedral of St. Andrew in Honolulu.  It is a bequest from Ernie Kai in memory of his beloved wife “Peggy” with the intention of enriching the Hawaiian public and bringing people to the Cathedral of St. Andrew.  The lectures occur yearly and are open to the general public.  The fund is currently administered by a Board consisting of the Dean of the Cathedral, the Rt. Rev. Robert L. Fitzpatrick; a representative of the donor family, Ann Kai Millard and the Cathedral Director of Formation.  The Board is to be “well-informed in national and international affairs and fully supporting the basic principles of the Speakers Program”.
