From Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, Matthew will help you identify what stands between you and happiness . . . and what to do about it. Are you ready for your best Lent ever?

    Lei ministry needs volunteers
    Welcoming visitors to our parish at weekend Masses is very, very important - as it is in every parish. You have all seen that part of our welcoming includes presenting a lei to each visitor. We need more parishioners to volunteer to crochet leis so that we always have a good supply available at Masses. This is a ministry you can fulfill in the comfort of your home. Don't know how to crochet? Instruction is available. Call the parish office (487-2414) to volunteer. Mahalo.

    Good Stewards Live the Beatitudes

    Three weekends in our February liturgical calendar will turn our attention to Jesus’ teachings in the Gospel of Matthew explaining what is to be expected of those who choose to follow him. This is the familiar Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5:1 – 7:29), the most quoted part of the Bible. Jesus’ sermon begins with messages of comfort, the Beatitudes (Matt. 5:3-12).
