White Sunday wows Chaminade again


Lumana’i O Samoa club

On Oct. 12, Lumana’i O Samoa (LOS) club once again celebrated White Sunday at the Mystical Rose Oratory, a holiday observed by American and Western Samoa falling on the second Sunday of every October.

“This was another reason why I wanted to attend Chaminade University. It was because they celebrate White Sunday,” said 27-year-old student of CUH and president of LOS, Iupelisiliva Hine pei.

Fealofani O Samoa (FOS) club of University of Hawaii at Manoa was also invited to join the event; it acted a brief skit and executed creative dance performances.

White Sunday is a service for children and a day where their parents and communities honor and celebrate childhood. It is a tradition that the children dress up in white and host programs during church services.
