Vaccine
"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.
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
 
After months of COVID-19 lock-down, here are the OLPH Re-opening guidelines that will be inforce to allow us to gather in person as a faith community.  Please read the guidelines because they contain valuable information that will allow you to make reservations and secure the tickets for the Mass you and your family would like to attend.  A ticket is required for each person to attend Mass.  Click the link below for the guidelines.

Master Plan Update - October 4, 2020
The 2nd pre-construction services meeting was conducted on 9/2/20. The focus of the meeting centered on.  The focus of the meeting centered on building components.

Foundation
  • A review of the geotechnical report conducted by Geolabs was discussed with primary input from Tim Goshi, KAI Hawaii (structural), Gerald Seki, Geolabs (geo tech), Gavin Hubbard, Design Build (GC).
  • Discussion focus was soils stabilization and whether the need for probing & grouting was necessary to assurethat the footings are solid enough to handle the weight of the church.
  • Design Build had performed the probing & grouting for Campbell HS & their additions. He indicated that due to the nature of the coral soils probing uncovered slightly less than 50% voids/cavities requiring grouting.
  • It was decided that it would be too risky not to perform the probing & grouting.
Steel vs. Glu-Laminated vs. Wood Framing
  • Structural steel is a significant cost item so the discussion was whether instead of structural steel w/wood cladding it could be replaced with Glu-Lam structural components & still provide for fire rating, constructability,and reduce significant cost.
    • Design Build can self-perform Glu-Lam work, but not structural steel.
    • Glu-Lam would require termite treatment.
    • Glu-Lam would also require monitoring for termites over time & treatment in the future.
    • KAI (structural) will review what sizes the Glu-Lam beams must be to support the structure.
    • Will revisit once KAI has reviewed & evaluated. If feasible cost analysis will be completed.
CMU (Concrete Masonry Unit) vs. Framed Walls
  • CMU provides for better acoustical properties, but framed walls would require some type of finish system on the exterior walls (EIFS -exterior insulation finishing system).
  • EIFS could add cost to the framed walls that make CMU a better choice.
  • More discussion & investigation of cost components are required.
Floor Finishing Options
  • Polished concrete vs. epoxy vs. Ardex or other finishing system.
  • Design Build can self-perform plain polished concrete. Did not recommend staining afterward due to color inconsistencies.
  • Design Build also commented on the difficulty to cut circular pieces of tile envisioned for the baptismal font & sanctuary.
  • Design Build also commented on pre-colored concrete for the center aisle if more than one truck/pour dueto color inconsistencies.
  • Ardex would require that the center aisle be 2 or 3 inches lower than the rest of the floor.
  • Domus will review other options that remove porcelain tile from the center aisle & circular features on the sanctuary & baptismal font such that we can evaluate efficacy/cost.
Ceiling Options
  • Wood ceiling is a significant cost item and options need to be considered despite good acoustical & aesthetic properties.
  • One suggestion was to use wood slats.
  • Gyp board by itself does not have good acoustical properties.
  • Domus will work with Idibri to develop alternative materials that will provide some acoustical properties such that we can develop cost comparisons & eliminate some of the wood.
Liturgical Elements
  • The baptismal font will be part of the building structure & performed by Design Build. Domus will provide more specific instructions to Design Build as we move closer to finalizing construction elements.
  • Many of the liturgical elements; pews, altar, ambo, credence table, stations, etc. will not be part of Design Build’s contract and those elements requiring installation will be provided by the GC (i.e. pews, altar, ambo).
  • Coordination will take place a bit later in the process.
