    Advent Parish Mission

    We welcome former pastor of St. Elizabeth parish FATHER MIKE DALTON who will present an Advent Mission in our church each evening from 7pm to 8pm. The last evening of the mission, December 7, we will celebrate Advent Reconciliation and ten priests from our vicariate parishes will be present to hear confessions. The Advent Season is a time of spiritual preparation for the Christmas Season. Father Mike will help prepare us and lead us into this wonderful season.


    One of the best ways to prepare for the Christmas Season is to make a good confession, celebrate Reconciliation! Services are celebrated at 7:00pm in each parish of our Central Oahu Vicariate:

    December 10–11
    The senior sisters, brothers, and religious order priests — some 33,000 across the nation — have offered their lives in service and prayer. They have educated the young, cared for the sick, and spoken for the oppressed. Many continue to serve. Others need assistance. Your gift to the Retirement Fund for Religious through the 2nd collection this weekend helps provide nursing care, medications, and other necessities. Please be generous. Read more.

    Advent & Stewardship

    Advent is a time of waiting and expectation; a season of quiet anticipation and preparation. We are waiting for our Lord to come into the world as the baby Jesus, born of the Virgin Mary in Bethlehem. We are also preparing for His return, His second coming as the shepherd-king, to restore harmony and right relationship to all creation. Advent is a season yearning for God to come and set the world right with perfect justice, truth and peace. It is a season of hope. Read more: December Stewardship Bulletin.
