I can usually count at least 5 people on Sunday in Hawaiian shirts.

Is this a generational/Ruthenian/local thing?

I know of a Lutheran colleague who, in his younger and wilder days had his wife fashion Hawaiian shirts into clerical tab shirts by sewing down the collar and folding the points. He would sport this unique garb at Synod assemblies.

As the years went by and our former Lutheran body lurched leftward my colleague began to rebel by wearing the traditional black shirt with tab collar or full neckband. I can't recall when I last saw him in anything else.

Greetings,

I doubt I would ever wear one to Mass, but if I saw one at Mass, I think it would not be very long before I thought of St. Damien of Molokai. His Wikipedia entry [en.wikipedia.org] is quite interesting.

Peace in and out.
