    "As a Church, we serve many different communities. I ask that all our faithful prayerfully consider being counted in the census – regardless of citizenship. The Census Bureau assures us that your information is protected and confidential. Federal law protects your responses, which cannot be shared with law enforcement, immigration agencies, or housing authorities." – Bishop Larry Silva.

    Honolulu County has extended the stay-at-home orders through September 24. However, churches are allowed to remain open as long as we continue to strictly observe the safety protocols: wearing face coverings while on the parish campus, sanitizing hands, social distance, etc. Our parish will continue with our Weekday and Weekend Mass schedule. The only additions to the restrictions are that our parish office will be closed through September 24 and confessions are by appointment only. Read Bishop Larry's letter.
