"The Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Church in the State of Hawaii. We embrace our rich history founded on generations of faith filled Catholics greatly enhanced by the legacy of Saints Damien and Marianne. Our parish life centers on worship and on being a source of spiritual and sacramental nourishment. We strive to welcome people from many different places and backgrounds."

This weekend we will take up the annual collection for the Augustine Educational Foundation, a great
gift to our diocese, which provides scholarships to families so that they can be educated in our wonderful Catholic schools.
This year, a generous donor has offered to match our gifts. We know how much these funds are appreciated by those who
receive them, so I urge you to be generous and to urge your people to contribute generously to this collection.
Thank you for your constant witness to Jesus!

"This Is Not A Drill"- A Documentary on the False Missile Alert- Presented by Hawaii News Now
“Normally when a person sins, they go to confession to a priest, it’s very private, and then they receive the Lord’s
forgiveness,” said Bishop Larry Silva. He continued, “In general absolution, there’s a special provision for emergencies …
and I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Those are the words that I
said.”- Bishop Larry Silva

2020 Annual Stewardship Report now available
Each one of us is called to help build a parish culture where all members come to understand their giftedness, their role as stewards of their gifts, and how they can graciously return their gifts to God for his glory. As disciples of Jesus, reflect back with us on our year of stewardship of our parish, the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace.

Cathedral Basilica Renewal Campaign
Planned giving provides a donor with a set of ways a donor can leave money or assets to a charitable organization at his or her death; or a way to invest money so that the donor receives benefits during his or her life and then bequeaths the remaining funds to the Cathedral. A bequest is the simplest type of planned gift to make and one of the easiest to implement. Cash, securities, real estate, or personal property can be given to the Cathedral and the Renewal Campaign through a will or trust. Please contact the Cathedral Renewal Campaign Director, Kamalani Rodrigues at (808) 585-3357, if you’re considering a planned gift to the Cathedral.
