Covid-19 Task force with the approval of Bishop Larry Silva, is providing further guidelines on parish activities. Because we have received word that we are allowed 100% capacity for Mass and other worship services, the administrator and staff have decided that Easter Sunday was our last Livestream mass. We apologize and we look forward in seeing you personally at any of our St. Catherine of Alexandria Parish masses. However we are continuing to livestream the rest of the school year's Children Masses.

 


We must stay vigilant about our health protocols, and so the following norms must continue to be observed: 
 

  • Masks are optional for those who feel more comfortable wearing them. 
  • No-touch greetings and Sign of Peace remain the norms. \
  • Holy Communion is to be given only under the species of Bread.

Children's Mass - April 29, 2022

 




Easter Sunday  

The Supreme Court is ready to make a major landmark decision on Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health.  Jackson Women’s Health Care is an abortion clinic in Mississippi challenging the Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act (2018) that limits abortion at 15 weeks. Modern science has proven that a fetus at 15 weeks is capable of feeling pain, has a fully formed nose, lips and eyebrows and is able to suck their thumb.

The Supreme Court is considering the correctness of its previous rulings in Roe v Wade (1973) and Planned Parenthood v Casey (1992). If Roe v Wade is overturned, the legality of abortion will rest in the hands of each state.  Some states are doubling their efforts in protecting the rights of a woman to have an abortion if she chooses. Some states have already passed “trigger laws” ensuring abortion will remain legal if Roe is overturned.  In contrast, many states may prohibit abortion altogether or enact stricter laws to prevent an abortion without justifiable cause. 

As Christians we are called to preach the Truth, that all life is a sacred gift from God from conception to natural death.  As the body of Christ we are to fall on our knees, beg for God’s mercy and pray for the end of Abortion.

Let us pray the intentions of the Rosary for Life based on Pope John Paul II encyclical Evangelium Vitae, The Gospel of Life. Also, please join the men and women who pledge to give one hour of their time praying in front of Planned Parenthood for the conversion of heart for abortion workers, parents, grandparents, men and women who promote abortion.  We also pray for the life of the innocent unborn. Please contact Anne Shigeta Koch, 40 Days for Life Site Leader at 808 268-7143 or Agnes Tauyan @ 808 348-4481. More than ever, your presence and prayers are crucial. We know that God is in control, but he works through us that his will be done. Amen.

Contact your parish Respect Life Coordinator for more details or the Respect Life Ministry c/o Deacon Gary and Valerie Streff at gstreff@rcchawii.org or vstreff@rcchawaii.org.


 

From Bishop Larry Silva

So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but fellow citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone.
Ephesians 2:19-20

When you give to the ‘Ohana in Christ appeal, your gift not only assists the diocesan mission, you also help support your parishes, pastors, schools, service agencies and communities. Your generous contribution is indeed needed to strengthen vital programs as "fellow citizens" striving to make a difference in our islands by our witness to Jesus. I truly appreciate your support of the Bishop's Circle, and humbly ask for your prayerful and generous gift to the ‘Ohana in Christ annual appeal.
