PUBLIC MASSES WILL RESUME ON 5/30 AND 5/31

Aloha!  Mahalo for coming here to see what mass times are available!  Please read through ALL the notes to help make everyone's return to mass a smooth experience.

Please register for an admission ticket for EACH person attending.  One admission ticket admits only ONE (1) person.  Children under the age of 5 will not need a ticket.  Anyone without tickets will be turned away.  Families will be allowed to reserve an entire pew to sit in, however you will still need to provide names for ALL members attending mass and sitting in the pew.

Please try to arrive at your mass time at least 45 minutes before mass begins and please bring one of the following to your mass time: Photo ID, Printed Ticket, or Electronic Ticket.  Please have these out and ready while waiting in line to check-in to help the process go smoothly.  Check-in for the church or tents will be at Mama Mary's Grotto; check-in for the parish hall will be at the side entrance.  

In order to be considerate of other parishioners, please register for a mass every other week in order to give others an opportunity to attend.  If on Friday, there are seats available, you are welcome to register for an admission ticket.

Please come to mass with a mask.  You will be required to wear one during mass and will only be permitted to take it off during communion.  If possible, we would appreciate it if you could bring your own hand sanitizer as the available hand sanitizer stations around the church will be limited.

Please do not come to mass if you are feeling sick.

In order to be able to have masses, it requires a lot of manpower and service.  Although there are people that are already volunteering to assist with the needs of the church during this time, more volunteers are always appreciated.  If you would like to volunteer to help with the various tasks needed to have mass, or would like to find out how you can assist, please call the parish office during regular office hours.  Most tasks just need you to show up ready to work!

 

We are diligently preparing for your return to Immaculate Conception Church for the celebration of the mass and we hope to see you soon.

 

God Bless!

Regarding the Re-Opening of our Church

I have attended "Go-to-Meetings" On-Line, for the past two weeks regarding what we will need to do to safely open our church. We have been discussing what we will have to do, enforce, and comply with to satisfy the State requirements. This will take everyone's cooperation and will require adjusting the way that we celebrate Mass and the sacraments for the near future. The bishop has been including priest, deacons, and medical professionals in trying to work out the details. We are far from complete in our planning but as soon as we are, I will share the plan with you.

 

- Please also know that we have no date for the re-opening of churches. 

As part of the planning we are looking at social distancing within the church which means ever other pew will be left open and marked with signage "PLEASE DO NOT SIT IN THIS PEW" We have also marked off six feet on the floors for social distancing. As we are once again still in the planning stages.  I will let everyone know what to expect.

Prayers During The Time Of The Coronavirus Disease

The attached Flyer was created by the Diocese of Honolulu to assist the faithful in praying during this time of the Coronavirus.   

DIOCESE OF HONOLULU PRAYER FOR THE COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

[by Bishop Larry Silva; March 12, 2020]

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 service of those who had an infectious disease.

St. Marianne Cope dedicated their lives to service of those who has an infectious disease.

St. Marianne Cope said, "I an 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.

CRS Rice Bowl

This Lenten Season will be one that no one will forget. Throughout the past 40 days this pandemic crisis, COVID-19, made our world appear so much smaller as we were reminded by Pope Francis that "we can only get out of this situation together, as a whole humanity."

And so we gather in our homes this week as a Domestic Church and encouraged to conclude our Lenten journey by counting the sacrificial gifts collected in your Rice Bowls. Reflect on what you witnessed and experienced then offer up the Prayer to End the Lenten Season

God of abundance, You generously provide for our every need. As we end our Lenten journey, may we continue to remember our brothers and sisters around the world who are hungry, who don't have the opportunity to dream, and all who need our support. We pray that these, our Lenten sacrifices, may be an offering of solidarity and a promise of ongoing commitment to our one human family. As good stewards of your many gifts, may we always answer Jesus' call to reach out beyond ourselves and too share your abundance. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Families may send their go CRS online: (click link below)

Another option is to save your Rice Bowls for a symbolic conclusion that you would bring to the parish

when all are able to safely gather again.

 

During these final days of Holy Week, we mourn the tragic, heroic sacrifice of so many because of the deadly coronavirus and miss not spending these sacred days in our churches with our faith communities. But we can still keep these days holy in our homes with loved ones and in solidarity as a "whole humanity." CRS Rice Bowl materials can help us journey as one human family with Christ from his triumphant entry into Jerusalem to his final meal with his closest friends and ultimately to his death on the cross and then to the resurrection of Easter Sunday.

URGENT MEMORANDUM

As we are all aware, we are in a unique time in which a pandemic that has had effects needs to be halted. The Diocese of Honolulu has already sent out directives about how to keep as safe as possible during our liturgies and our spiritual, educational and social gatherings. The situation has rapidly changed, however, and in light of the Center for Disease Control's most recent strong recommendations for containment of this contagious virus, I am now offering these directives to be followed in all parishes, ethnic communities, and oratories in the Diocese of Honolulu.

1.  The public celebration of Mass will be canceled in all locations, effective at noon on March 17 through Tuesday, March 31, inclusive. I am dispensing all the faithful from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays during this period.

On Friday, March 27, we will reassess the situation and decide about the best course of action after March 31. This has been extended until MAY 31, 2020.

During this time of crisis, let us pray for one another and for the health and safety of all in our community. For many, "fasting" from the Mass will be the most difficult fast they have undertaken, but we pray that it will help us be even more appreciative of this great gift of Christ's ongoing presence with us.
