Bishop Larry Silva announces the "Resumption of Sunday Mass Obligation":
Effective Easter Sunday, April 4 (or as of the Easter Vigil, April 3), I am ending the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass, which has been in effect since mid-March, 2020. However, anyone who is sick, may have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19, or who has a health condition that would endanger themselves or others by being present in church, continues to be dispensed.
       Please click on the link below to read the Bishop's Memorandum in its entirety.
"As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, this new year brings some hope in controlling the virus through vaccines. The State of Hawaii vaccination plan is being implemented at this time. You may have some moral or ethical concerns regarding the potential contents (compromised cell lines/fetal cells) of these vaccines in relation to our Catholic teaching and faith."  Click on the link below to read the Bishop's letter in its entirety.

From the Diocesan COVID-19 Task Force:
"Governor Ige's July 8 updates to the State's  Safe Travels Program and Reopening Hawai'i Strategy did not change any restrictions for the Catholic church, except for the increases in limits fro indoor and outdoor events."  (Click the icon below to read the letter in its entirety.)

       Pope Francis in a meeting with young people challenged them and all of us with these words: “Poverty calls us to sow hope . . . Poverty is the flesh of the poor Jesus, in that child who is hungry, in the one who is sick, in those unjust social structures. . .  The times talk to us of so much poverty in the world and this is a scandal.  Poverty in the world is a scandal.  In a world where there is so much wealth, so many resources to feed everyone, it is unfathomable that there are so many hungry children, that there are so many children without an education, so many poor persons.  Poverty today is a cry.” (Pope Francis, Meeting with Students of Jesuit Schools—Q & A, 6/7/13).
        Here are real pictures in our world today: “Hunger Fast Facts (1) There is more than enough food produced in the world to feed everyone on the planet; (2) As many as 811 million people worldwide go to bed hungry each night; (3) Small farmers, herders, and fishermen produce about 70 percent of the global food supply yet they are especially vulnerable to food insecurity – poverty and hunger are most acute among rural populations; (4) Conflict is the causeand consequence of hunger.  In 2020, conflict was the primary driver of hunger for 99.1 million people in 23 countries; (5) An estimated 14 million children under the age of five worldwide suffer from sever acute malnutrition, also known as sever wasting, yet only 25 percent of acutely malnourished children have access to lifesaving treatment”  (Action Against Hunger/ACF-USA, 2021).
Face Masks Required A simple vector logo of a Covid-19 protective face mask with the text "Face Masks Required" in a red circle face mask stock illustrations
In reference to the announcement on the new guidance from the CDC about the use of face mask [outdoor/indoor] for those that are fully vaccinated, Governor David Ige announced that he is keeping the mandate in place for now.  He is reviewing the guidelines and will be announcing appropriate adjustments in the near future.  The governor also acknowledged that while it “may be OK and safe” for vaccinated individuals to forgo the use of a mask in public, keeping the mandate in place benefits the broader community.

SO, at this time we will also continue requiring the use of face masks in all our churches, work places and schools.
Starting April 17 & 18, Mass Attendance will be "First Come, First Served".  This means that you come to church, sign-in and get a temperature check; then you will be seated.  If there are available seats in the church, you will be seated in the church.   When there are no seats available in the church, you will be seated outside on the lanai under the tent.
We will no longer use Eventbrite or call-in to reserve seats.  If you have any questions, call the Parish Office.
