A MESSAGE FROM THE RE DIRECTOR
Aloha Dear Parents and Children!
Happy Summer Everyone!
Thank you Lord God for School Year 2021-2022!
The last two (2) years were tough times for all of us but with God's grace, we weathered through them. Nonetheless, never let your guards down; COVID-19 is here to stay so take every precaution to care for yourselves and your families.
Also, let us all persevere and be relentless in our prayers for priestly and religious vocations, the protection of life, and peace in our country & the world.
Thank you dear parents for allowing us to be part of your children's Catholic formation. And to our RE catechists and volunteers, thank you for giving your time, talent and treasure for the Lord though this Ministry.
We will miss you all but time flies pretty fast, and so we will see you soon again... this coming School Year 2022-2023!
Stay Safe! Looking forward to seeing you all on campus!
With much love ♥ from Sister Meristella
Act of Spiritual Communion
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
God speaks to us in many ways, especially through the Scripture. The Sunday Connection provides useful background and activities to help children have a better understanding of the Sunday readings, connecting the Scripture to their daily life in meaningful ways.
Prayer for the COVID-19 Pandemic
Bishop Clarence Silva, 03/12/2020, Diocese of Honolulu
Dear God of all the living, You sent Your Son Jesus to heal us from illness and sin. We turn to His healing power in this time of anxiety over the pandemic of this potentially deadly virus.
St. Damien and St. Marianne Cope dedicated their lives to the service of those who had infectious disease. St. Marianne Cope said, "I am not afraid of any disease," because she was confident of Your power to save. At the same time, she took prudent precautions of hygiene to assure that she and her Sisters would not be infected.
Let us learn from this example to put our trust in You to save us from the ravages of disease and to take prudent measures to prevent its spread. Guide us to know when to isolate ourselves from the possibility of infection, but never let anyone be left without the care and concern of others in the community.
As our Diocese of Honolulu has been dedicated to the Divine Mercy, we pray with confidence, "Jesus, I trust in You." Amen.
