      Would you like to learn/review what the Sacrament of Baptism is about?  We can suggest two videos: “Baptism, One Ohana” from our diocese and “Why We Baptize” from Busted Halo series on Sacraments 101.
      To access Baptism, One Ohana, please go to the diocesan website: catholichawaii.org, click on diocesan offices, scroll down to Office of Religious Education, then click on “Baptism, One Ohana”.  We use this video to prepare parents and godparents for infant Baptism.
      Here’s the link to “why we baptize infants” from Busted Halo :  http://bustedhalo.com/video/baptism
Or you may Google: Why we baptize infants, busted halo you tube.  It’s narrated by Fr. Dwyer.
 
 
The inquiry session on Friday nights will continue through the summer.  If you or anyone you know would still like to join the group, please do so.  It starts at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  Sessions are held at the Parish Office Conference Room.  Why no summer break for RCIA?  Formation in RCIA stems from the Sunday liturgy.  The next question then is: Does the liturgy (the Mass) have summer break?  Do we not go to Mass on Sundays in the summer?  Of course we do!!!  And we must!!!   RCIA is year-round.
 
 
Registration for Religious Education will start on July 16 before and after all Masses.  Classes on Sunday mornings are scheduled to start on August 20.  Year 2017-2018 will be a very hectic calendar for all of us because those who are on their second year of preparation for First Communion will also receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.  In addition, all those who have received their First Holy Communion and attended religious education in 2016-2017 will also be Confirmed.  Therefore, all First Communicants up to high school or even adults who need the Sacrament of Confirmation, will be Confirmed on May 20, 2018.  Please register early.
