Liliuokalani Becomes a Member of the Anglican Church.
At 6 o’clock or so on this Monday, Liliuokalani was baptized and there was a laying on of hands (Kopirimatio) by Bishop Willis, in St. Andrew’s Cathedral. The font was festooned with flowers of all sorts.
[We found this small mention about Liliuokalani’s baptism because of response by Corrine Chun Fujimoto on yesterday’s post about the Anglican Church in Hawaii!
Also, can help me with the word that “Kopirimatio” comes from?]
