Religion Section


In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Christians in Hawaii were more likely to support the U.S. annexation for Hawaii. Thus, pro-annexation newspapers of Hawaii often ran church sections or religion sections (usually only Christianity in Hawaii), including the following:

1. Honolulu Star-Bulletin: “In the Churches,” “In the Broad Field of Religion,” and “With the Clergy and Laymen”

2. Maui News: “In the Churches”

3. The Pacific Commercial Advertiser: “At the Churches,” “Church News,” and “News of the Church”

The section includes a list of church services, sermons, news, feature articles, and missionary account.
