    Pray with Pope Francis
    Special Intention for September 2016
     
         Let us join with Christians around the world in praying for these special intentions of our Holy Father.
         "Dear Lord Jesus, during this month of September, we ask for the grace to build a society that places the dignity of each human person at the center. Lord, we also ask that as we participate in the sacraments and meditate on your word in Scripture, we may grow more deeply in the mission to evangelize."
     

    New Year’s resolutions are famously made on January 1, and infamously broken by the end of that month. But for many stewards, the real time of renewal and recommitment comes as we turn the calendar page into September, and the resolutions have a longer and greater impact. Why? Because good Catholic stewards realize that the parish is often times the place where people encounter Christ’s presence in their lives, and in the fall, everything kicks into high gear at the parish. Opportunities abound for growth, for giving, for community. It’s now that we ponder and make our decisions for how we will make a disciple’s response during the coming year through our commitment to the life of our parishes.
     
    Read more in the September stewardship bulletin.

    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."
