       The banner story of the special section of the Hawaii Catholic Herald, dated 1 January 2016, Friday, is   the 2015 Diocesan Stewardship Report.  On page 11, there is an article entitled, “We have made great strides” written by Marlene De Costa.  This same article is reproduced in toto below so that those who could not avail of this issue of the Hawaii Catholic Herald would also have the opportunity to know and understand why there is a constant and regular input about Stewardship in our parish:
      When I was hired as diocesan real estate director in 2009, one of my highest priorities was to find appropriately sized properties in West Oahu for parishes bursting at the seams.  It was a tall order, with many unknowns.  Using With Grateful Hearts dollars, the Diocese commissioned a demographic study to determine likely congregation sizes in 2020 and out to 2035.  We shared the data with Leeward Oahu parishes, whose dedicated pastors and lay leaders began planning for themselves.  Some five years later we have made great strides. Following different strategies, real estate decisions were made for five of the seven parishes.
      St. Rita in Nanakuli purchased a house for a rectory, leaving the parish enough space to build an expanded church, hall, classrooms and office. Still in the planning stage, the parish is hoping a long-term ground lease extension will bring their dreams to fruition.
     In 2014, I helped St. Jude in Kapolei find a new home.  The 11-acre parcel is centrally located across from Kapolei Regional Park. It’s large enough for a 1,200-seat worship space, hall, catechism classrooms, office and rectory, with additional space should the parish see an elementary school in its future.
      Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Ewa Beach also developed a Master Plan that expands their worship space from 300 to 750 seats. The current church will become a parish hall and offices.  A nearby house was purchased as a rectory, allowing more space for the parish plan. A nearby property investment will help provide needed financial resources.
      Immaculate Conception in Ewa has completed a feasibility study and is now in search of a permanent new home.  The journey continues.

Each parish is moving along and, in my mind, the Holy Spirit is right along with them.

The banner story of the special section of the Hawaii Catholic Herald, dated 1 January 2016, Friday, is the 2015 Diocesan Stewardship Report.  On page 10, there is an article entitled, “New pastor, old challenge” written by Lisa Sakamoto.  This same article is reproduced in toto below so that those who could not avail of this special issue of the Hawaii Catholic Herald would also have the opportunity to know and understand why there is a constant and regular input on Stewardship in our parish:
Does the following scenario sound familiar?  Your parish is bursting at the seams and needs to expand.  But your longstanding pastor, who had been leading the effort planning for future growth, is given a new assignment.  Your new pastor doesn’t have a clue as to what needs to be done.  What does your parish do?  It could follow the example of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Ewa Beach.  The new pastor there is Father Ed Barut. Before going to Ewa Beach, Father Ed, who is from the Philippines, was the parochial vicar at Sacred Heart Parish, Punahou.  When he arrived at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in 2012, the parish had a $2.5 million loan that is due in 2016.  The loan had been used to buy property behind the parish for its expansion.  How did Father Ed proceed?  First, he listened to his parishioners. Then he pulled together a very capable Planning and Building Committee and a Finance Council and leaned on his lay leadership to help him.  Finally, he called upon the Diocesan Administrative Services Team for advice in master planning, contract negotiations, real estate, financing and stewardship.  He included in the planning the principal of the parish school and the Hawaii Catholic Schools superintendent.  He communicated with his parishioners, seeking their input along the way.  He brought all the parts together and most importantly, he trusted God and allowed everyone to work as one Body of Christ.  Fast forward to today.  Father Ed has an approved master plan for the parish expansion and is ready to launch a capital campaign to raise more than $3 million.  Our Lady of Perpetual Help’s journey is only beginning but, it is safe to say, it is definitely on the right path in bringing the expansion to life.
