    Welcome to Ministry

    Deacon Fred and Mrs. Lina Carahasen
     
    Bishop Larry Silva has assigned Deacon Fred to ministry at St. Elizabeth Parish effective April 1. Deacon Fred has been serving at Immaculate Conception Parish in Ewa for the past several years. We are so happy that he will join our ministry team here in our parish. Welcome home!
      Bishop Larry needs our help:
    "The mission given to us by Jesus is a very challenging one. While society values what one owns, our faith values how we use it. We are called to be both wise and generous with the valuable resources of our time, talent and treasure. I am grateful for your continuous financial support of the Diocese and our various ministries – which in turn support your parishes, clergy, staff, and most of all, your youth and those in need." For your convenience, look for the Bishop's Circle donation envelopes at our Welcome Table. Let's help Bishop Larry meet his goal. Read more.

     
    All our parish youth, 1st grade through high school, are invited to participate in our youth minitries. For 1st grade through 8th levels, visit our religious education website for all the details.

    Stewardship

    Be a Good Steward of the Lenten Season
    The Lenten season prepares us for the celebra- tion of Easter. It is a time for Christians to embrace prayer, fasting, and almsgiving in a more concerted way. For some it is a time of healing, an opportunity to repair their spiritual brokenness. For others it is simply a good time to cultivate their spiritual lives in a more disciplined manner. The goal of Lenten practices: to prepare ourselves to enter into the paschal mystery of Holy Week with a more humble spirit and determination to follow Jesus Christ. This ancient triad of prayer, fasting and almsgiving offers wonderful spiritual benefits. Being a good steward of these gifts by planning ahead and following through is essential to having a fruitful Lenten experience.
