A letter from Bishop Larry Silva

Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Peace be with you!
Please VOTE in the November 4 general election!
When God gives us a gift, he expects that we use it for the good of all. We have been given the gift of living in a democratic country, and this blessing also involves a grave responsibility. We must participate in our government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” Voting is one of the concrete ways we can assure that the values we hold dear for the common good can be enshrined in the law of the land. We vote these values not only in particular questions or propositions, but by electing public servants who will work for the same values we know are so important.
Among the values that are essential are: respect for life from the moment of conception to natural death; the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman as the basis of the healthy family, which leads to a healthy culture; care for the poor and most vulnerable; freedom based on the truth of the human person and religious freedom.
 
I am grateful to the Knights of Columbus for their willingness to help raise our awareness of the need to use our God-given liberties for the good of all by helping us get out the vote. I encourage all to register (deadline: October 6, 2014), to ask for a permanent absentee ballot to make voting as easy as possible, to do the penance of studying the candidates and their stances and records, and to VOTE on or before November 4. May the Lord guide us and enlighten us all!

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Larry Silva
Bishop of Honolulu

Pray with Pope Francis

Special prayer of Pope Francis
for October 2014:

 "During this month of October, we lift up every nation, family, and individual who are most battered by war and violence. Lord, please grant your peace to each one of your children in those parts of the world. We slso pray for World Mission Day (October 19). On World Mission Sunday, dear God, please rekindle in every believer zeal for carrying the gospel into all the world."


During the cold and flu season all parishioners are reminded to use common sense. Those who are ill are not obligated to attend Mass and should stay home to recover. If you are at Mass and feeling ill, please refrain from taking Communion from the chalice. We also ask that those who are not well refrain from offering your hand to others at the sign of peace. We pray for the health and recovery of all who are ill and who could not be at Mass. For more information, visit the website of the U.S. Catholic Bishops: Influenza and the Liturgy.

Sunday, November 2, is All Souls Day, a time to commemorate and pray for all our loved ones who have died. We pray for the souls in Purgatory that the Lord will cleanse them of all sin and, through our prayer offered in Jesus' name, they will be blessed with eternal life. If you wish to have your loved one's name remembered at Mass throughout the month of November, you will find envelopes marked "All Souls" in the church; you may place these envelopes in the weekend collection basket or bring them to the parish office. These names will be placed on our tabernacle altar. "Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon them."
