We are a stewardship parish!

St. Anthony of Padua
Stewardship Saint for June
     St. Anthony of Padua is one of the most beloved and admired saints in the Church. Because he was a prolific preacher and witness to the Gospel in his personal life, he is known as a great stewardship saint.
     St. Anthony was born on the Feast of the Assumption in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1195 to a wealthy and educated family of the Portuguese nobility. He entered the Augustinian religious community at an early age where he devoted himself to the study of sacred scripture and Latin classics.
     He joined the Franciscan Order when he was 26 years old and traveled tirelessly to preach what it meant to live according to the Gospel. He is believed to have made as many as 400 trips to towns in both northern Italy and southern France. 
     St. Anthony knew that preaching was not enough to help people understand how to live according to the Gospel. He believed he had to give witness to the Gospel by the way he lived his personal life. He adopted and maintained a simple lifestyle consistent with what he believed the Gospel was calling him to.
     St. Anthony died in Padua, Italy, on June 13, 1231 at the age of 36. He was proclaimed a saint less than one year after his death. So simple, yet compelling and inspiring was St. Anthony’s teaching of the Catholic faith that he was declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius XII in 1946. 
     Best known for his patronage of seekers of lost items, St. Anthony is commonly referred to today as the “finder of lost articles.” Few people know that he is the patron of many other causes including the poor and those who travel. His feast day is June 13.
Because he was a prolific preacher and witness to the Gospel in his personal life, he is known as a great stewardship saint.

Stewardship is based on the spiritual principles of the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus. As Catholics, realizing all that we have is a gift from God, we are encouraged to reflect on our blessings, enhance them and share them with others. By giving of ourselves and helping those around us, we are practicing Christian stewardship.

In 1992, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops brought attention to this principle when they published Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response (U.S. Bishops' Pastoral Letter). Looking beyond financial contributions alone, this document encourages Catholics to live as disciples of Jesus and to share their gifts of time, talent and treasure – more out of gratitude than obligation.

Pray with Pope Francis
Special intention
for the Easter Season
"Dear Risen Lord, during this Easter Season, we pray that all of us would treat your creation with the utmost respect. May we learn to treat this world that you have entrusted to us as your gift and never take your creation for granted. We also lift up persecuted Christians throughout the world. May they experience your consoling presence, Risen Lord, and the support of the entire Church."
Dutton Prayer
D
Joseph Dutton was instrumental in assisting Fr. Damien of Molokai with the care of the patients afflicted with Hansen's disease. This prayer is for private devotion for the cause of canonization of Joseph Dutton. Send reports and information of favors received through his intercession to josephdutton@rcchawaii.org.
Prayer:
"Come, Holy Spirit, and visit your people in our great need. May Joseph Dutton, who lived in penitential solidarity with those yearning for a complete change of mind and heart in every time and place, intercede for us in our struggle, particularly for _________________. May his total submission to your purifying will in all things encourage us on our own way of conversion. May whatever virtue in him your Church deems heroic clear the way to sainthood for him, for the inspiration and consolation of many. Amen."
