Rector:  Fr. Kua Apple.

     As my name implies (the legal part of which is Kuahiwi, short for a much longer name) I was born and spent most of my life in Hawaii.  Prior to becoming a priest I was a forensic chemist, but at God's urging Kymbra (my bride of almost 44 years) and I left Hawaii on October 31, 2005 in order to attend Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania.  I thank God my Father regularly for the Christ-centered, Scripturally grounded and godly preparation for ministry I received there. 

     I graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 2010; was ordained by Archbishop Duncan to the Diaconate (and later the Priesthood) in the Anglican Church in North America, and spent a year serving as a chaplain at Western Pennsylvania Hospital.  St. Martin's invited me to be their rector in 2011, and I gratefully accepted.

     Jesus is faithful (he always is) and good, and serving as his under-shepherd in his St. Martin's family is a privalege and joy.  I love to talk about the wonderous works of God here, so feel free to call (724-777-0817) and we'll find a time to get together and "talk story".


Grace and peace in God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
