    BAPTISM: The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated monthly on the last Saturday of the month at 2 p.m. To prepare for the Sacra- ment, parents and Godparents are required to attend a Baptism catechesis that is scheduled every second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.. All Godparents have to have attained the age of 16; not be the child’s parent; be a practicing Catholic and also need to have received the sacraments of Initiation, Baptism, First Eucharist, and Confirmation. Each Godparent needs to provide a Letter/ Certificate signed and sealed from their own Parish stating that they are a member in good standing and have completed the baptism class. For more information and registration forms, please contact the office.

    SACRAMENT OF MARRIAGE: Couples planning to marry in the Church must meet with a priest for several preparation meetings and attend an Engaged Encounter weekend. A minimum of 6 months is required.

    SACRAMENT OF ANOINTING OF THE SICK: Please notify the office or rectory when a family member is about to be hospitalized, is hospitalized, or is confined at home due to sickness, or aging.

The Chaplain will call the priest assigned for the day to the hospital to provide spiritual care and meet the sacramen- tal needs of the patient.

    Jesus, having competed the work of his Father, speaks of returning to him and of being glorified. As we share in his glory, so too do we share in Christ’s suffering. We have noth- ing to fear, however, since the Lord is our refuge. In his name do we gather, attentive to the Spirit.

    MAY 1, 2020 UPDATE: "As you know, Governor Ige has extended the order of stay-at-home lockdown until May 31 to continue the mitigation of the ef- fects of the virus and stop its spread. After consul- tation with my staff and the Presbyteral Council, I am extending the directives promulgated in my last memorandum dated March 27, 2020. The exten- sion of the Directives will go into effect immediate- ly and until May 31, 2020. Therefore, I am dis- pensing all Catholics in the Diocese of Honolulu from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass through May 31, 2020." - Bishop Larry Silva (see the attached letter or go to


    Dear God of all the living, you sent your Son Jesus to heal us from illness and sin. We turn to his healing power in this time of anxiety over the pandemic of this potentially deadly virus.

    St. Damien and St. Marianne Cope dedicated their lives to service of those who had an infectious disease. St. Marianne Cope said, “I am not afraid of any disease,” because she was confident of your power to save. At the same time, she took prudent precau- tions of hygiene to assure that she and her Sisters would not be infected.

    Let us learn from this example to put our trust in you to save us from the ravages of disease and to take prudent measures to prevent its spread. Guide us to know when to isolate ourselves from the possibility of infection, but never let anyone be left without the care and concern of others in the community.

    As our Diocese of Honolulu has been dedicated to the Divine Mercy, we pray with con- fidence, “Jesus, I trust in you.”

    Remember them this Memorial Day.

  • Seventh Sunday of Easter

    "The Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven" Why did Jesus leave his disciples forty days after his resurrection? Forty is a significant number in the Scriptures. Moses went to the mountain to seek the face of God for forty days in prayer and fasting. The people of Israel were in the wilderness for forty years in preparation for their entry into the promised land. Elijah fasted for forty days as he journeyed in the wil- derness to the mountain of God. For forty days after his resurrection Jesus appeared numerous times to his disciples to assure them that he had risen indeed and to prepare them for the task of carrying on the work which he began du
