    Second Collection
    OUR RETIRED PRIESTS DEDICATED THEMSELVES over many years to the service of God’s people, and we are grateful for the service they have rendered to our communities here in Hawaii. Your donations supplement the diocesan pension fund, covering the costs of sustenance, housing, medical and dental insurance, and other needs as our retired priests move into their elder years. They were there for us. Let’s be there for them now. We ask that you prayerfully consider a gift for our priests. You may also donate online.


         DEACON ARRION ROSALES-LLANTOS (left) will be ordained to the Priesthood on Friday, May 19, 2023 at the Co-Cathedral of St. Theresa at 6:00pm. All parishioners are welcome to attend. He will begin his assignment as Parochial Vicar at St. Elizabeth Parish effective July 1, 2023. We send our congratulations and prayers to Father Arrion and a warm welcome to our parish.
        SEMINARIAN KURT MEYER will be ordained a Deacon on Saturday, May 20, 2023 at the Co-Cathedral of St. Theresa at 8:00am. All our parishioners are invited to attend the Mass for Deacon Kurt. He will continue with one more year of seminary studies and we look forward to his ordination to the priesthood in 2024. We send our heartfelt congratulations and prayers.


    Father PJ and Father Sebastian
         BISHOP LARRY SILVA has appointed Father PJ Camiring to serve as the Administrator of St. Roch Parish, Kahuku, effective July 1, 2023. Congratulations, Father PJ, and "MAHALO" for serving St. Elizabeth so well during this past year. You will be greatly missed.
         BISHOP LARRY ANNOUNCED RECENTLY that Father Sebastian Soosai will be the new Pastor for St. Elizabeth Parish effective July 1, 2023. He currently serves as Pastor at St. Roch Parish, Kahuku. We offer congratulations to Father Sebastian and we want him to know we WELCOME him with open hearts.

         Mrs. Bernie Teson announces her retirement September 1, 2023. Parish secretaries are often the first contact for parishioners when you come to the parish office for help and information. So now we begin a search for a new secretary. Any interested person may call the parish office (808-487-2414) for more information and the hope is that we will find someone perhaps one or two months before July 31 to allow plenty of time for training.
          Youth ministry has top priority in our parish. We have a serious obligation to support our youth in every way and to share with them our holy Faith. We pray the Lord will send us a caring adult or couple who will lead our high school Life Teen youth ministry. Training and all materials are provided, including a training conference in Arizona next June. Do you have a passion for serving our youth? Interested persons may contact Father Arnold's email.

Please send a copy of the photo (including date, names, and other pertinent information) to Corry Lopez at celope1014@gmail.com or bring it to the parish office. Mahalo.

    Youth Minister Reno Remigio,

    ARE YOU AN ADULT WHO IS THINKING ABOUT BECOMING A CATHOLIC? Have you been wondering about God? Do you feel like there is something missing in your life? Does it seem as though you have a spiritual yearning deep within you that is not fulfilled? Do you feel as though God is calling you in some internal way? Do you long for more meaning to your life or the life of your family? Our parish OCIA is designed to help you answer those questions and prepare you for Sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Confirmation. Sessions take place Sundays at 9:30am to 11am. For details, contact Director Robin Oania at robinoania@yahoo.com.

    OUR PARISH HAS JOINED WITH OTHER PARISHES across the islands in a nationwide effort to increase outreach and support for pregnant and parenting mothers in need. We need all of you to join us by praying for all mothers and for the Culture of Life to be an integral part of our community. Let us be like our Blessed Virgin Mary who went in haste to help her cousin Elizabeth when she heard she was pregnant. Mary stayed with her for three months. Mothers, we are in this together, mothers helping other mothers. We have a brochure for you to keep and hope you will contact us if and when you know of a woman in need. We will do everything in our power to assist in whatever way we can. Pregnant and parenting moms in need are in our parishes and our neighborhoods. We are to be a community of mercy and love for them during their difficult times so they can once again get back on their feet.

    A review was conducted of more than 20,000 assisted living communities across the country. In the state of Hawaii, we examined 22 facilities to uncover information such as average costs, Medicaid assistance, and more. While long-term care costs in the state vary significantly among its islands, Hawaii has a median monthly assisted living cost of $5,500 — a full $1,500 more than the national average. Read more.
