Bishop Memorial Chapel



Worship services are conducted every Sunday while students are in residence on campus and is open to parents, alumni and visitors.


In support of our Kamehameha Schools ‘ohana, the Bishop Memorial Chapel has decided to re-open for memorial services effective March 02, 2021. While there are restrictions in place to keep our community safe, our hope is that by offering memorial services, we can help bring comfort to our ‘ohana during these times.
