Please welcome Fr. Joseph Anamoo Ayinpuusa, as he will be joining Our Lady of Perpetual Help as Parochial Vicar.  Fr. Joseph will celebrate his first Mass with us on Saturday, July 4th at 5:00 pm.

Fr. Joseph was born on August 13, 1968 Bolga-Soe, a suburb of Bolgatanga, the regional capital  of the Upper East region of Ghana in West Africa.  He is the second of ten children (four girls and six boys).

Fr. Joseph grew up in a family that practiced African Traditional Religion. He received his formal education at the Bolga-Soe Roman Catholic Primary school in 1975.  He entered Akatuuri Roman Catholic Middle school at Zaare, in Bolgatanga in 1981.

While in Middle school, he began going to church through the influence of his classmates.  He then enrolled into the RCIA catechumenate program in 1981 and received the Sacrament of Baptism on August 20, 1983, together with his younger brother, Emmanuel.  He was confirmed the following year on June 10, 1984.

After his Baptism in 1983, he started entertaining the idea of becoming a priest, and applied to go to St. Victor’s Major Seminary, to study and be trained for the Catholic Diocese of Navrongo-Bolgatanga.

On December 17 2000, he was ordained a deacon, then on September 15, 2001, he was ordained a Catholic priest.

Fr. Joseph came to the Diocese of Honolulu in July 2015 and was assigned to St. Jude in Kapolei and most recently at St. John Apostle & Evangelist in Mililani.  Let’s show Fr. Joseph our OLPH Aloha!

       What are the hard realities that we have to deal with nowadays?  Immediately, what comes to mind is having and maintaining our good health and our safety.  Without good health and our overall safety, then the stability of our job is compromised.  If we don’t have a job, then we start thinking the needs of the family.  The fact is that many of our people have second jobs just to cover the bills.  The other concern might be our mortgage.  Food is another concern that we have to deal with every day.  Education for our children is a part of the list that we have to deal with.  We can add more into this list of concerns.
       With this pandemic, the hard realities that we have enumerated above would not be simple concerns but become real burdens of life that we have to face.  And particular situations are aggravated because our health is at stake as we try our best to find solutions and the countless uncertainties this pandemic has created before us.
      In making the announcement of the decision to close our beloved OLPH School the past days, I kept saying, “As the pastor, I carried the burden of making the decision.”  It was not an easy decision because of its diverse implications.  I found solace in an email I received from a fellow priest: “Be assured of my thoughts and prayers for you, your parishioners, your faculty and staff and your children and their parents.  Thank you for making the hard decisions that need to be made in these turbulent times.  Mahalo.”  Another priest sent an email: “I just want wanted to extend my support and encouragement.  These decisions are never easy to make . . . Be assured of my prayers.”
