COMPREHENSIVE YOUTH MINISTRY

In alignment with our Diocese of Honolulu's Original Order, any youth in Grades 6-12 that have already received their Sacrament of Confirmation can further their Catholic education through Comprehensive Youth Ministry which, for our Immaculate Conception Parish, is known as the Couples for Christ-Youth Ministry. With that being said, our ministry would like to invite all youth in Grades 6-12 to join us EVERY FRIDAY (unless notified) from 6-9 p.m. at Immaculate Conception Church's Parish Hall.

The Couples for Christ-Youth Ministry is a family ministry under the worldwide religious organization "Couples for Christ." As a CFC-Youth member, you interact with the other ministries, further your education through teachings and services, and partake in fellowship, praise and worship.

For further information, questions, concerns, please feel free to contact our Couples for Christ-Youth coordinators or Ministry Heads using the information below. We look forward to building our community with all of you!

2020 Lenten Regulations, Diocese of Honolulu

The following are the Lenten Regulations here in the Diocese of Honolulu from the Office of Worship. 

FASTING:

In the Dioceses in the United States, Catholics aged 18 through 59 are bound to fast on both Ash Wednesday (February 26th) and Good Friday (April 10, 2020).

To fast means to consume one full meal a day at most, although taking other, smaller quantities of food at the other customary mealtimes is permitted. Food and drinks between meals (except water and medicine) is not permitted on fast days.

ABSTINENCE FROM MEAT:

Catholics aged 14 and up are to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday.

To abstain means refraining from eating beef, veal, pork, or poultry; although eggs and milk products are acceptable. The consumption of fish and shellfish are permitted, though the penitential character of the abstinence should be kept in mind.

EASTER DUTY:

All the faithful, after they have been initiated into the Most Holy Eucharist, are bound by the obligation of receiving Communion at least once a year. This precept is to be fulfilled during the Easter Season unless it is fulfilled, for a just cause, at some other time during the year. This period is extended to include all the weeks of Lent and the Easter Season up to Trinity Sunday (June 7, 2020).

LENTEN PRACTICES:

The faithful are encouraged during Lent to attend daily Mass, receive Holy Communion, participate in penance services, and receive sacramental absolution; to take part in public and private exercises of piety, give generously to works of religion and charity, perform acts of kindness toward the sick, aged, and the poor; to practice voluntary self-denial, especially regarding food, drink, and worldly amusements; and to pray more fervently, particularly for the intentions of the Holy Father.

Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, falls this year on February 26th. Ashes are to be blessed as a sign of our entry into a season of conversion, repentance, and reconciliation. Ashes are to be blessed by a bishop, priest, or deacon.  Others may be associated with the clergy in the distribution of ashes.

Funeral Masses may not be celebrated on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, or Holy Saturday, nor on the Sundays of Lent. When pastoral reasons require that a funeral be celebrated on these days, only a Funeral Outside of Mass may be held.

To afford the faithful opportunities to participate in Lenten prayer services, pastors are encouraged to have such prayer services at least twice a week, including the Way of the Cross on Fridays, Exposition and Benediction, Evening Prayer, and evening Masses. A homily or instruction should be included.

Continuation of the 2020 Lenten Regulations, Diocese of Honolulu

BLESSING OF THE OILS AND CONSECRATION OF THE CHRISM:

In order to allow participation of Catholics throughout the islands, the Sacred Oils will be blessed during the Chrism Mass to be celebrated in several locations. All are encouraged to join in one of the following celebrations:

a. Big Island: Thursday, March 24th at 5:30 p.m., St. Michael the Archangel Church, Kailua-Kona.

b. Kauai:        Thursday, March 26th at 7 p.m., St. Catherine Church, Kapaa.

c. Maui:          Tuesday, March 31st at 7 p.m., St. Theresa Church, Kihei.

d. Oahu:         Thursday, April 2nd at 7 p.m., Co-Cathedral of St. Theresa, Honolulu.

THE SACRED PASCHAL TRIDUUM:

"Since Christ accomplished his work of human redemption and of the perfect glorification of God principally through his Paschal Mystery, in which by dying he has destroyed our death, and by rising restored our life, the sacred Paschal Triduum of the Passion and Resurrection of the Lord shines forth as the high point of the entire liturgical year" (Universal Norms on the Liturgical Year and the Calendar, #18). Three major liturgical principles may be of help

here:

a. The Triduum may be viewed a single liturgical action that occurs over a period of three days.

b. The Triduum is not part of Lent, but in its entirely, celebrates the Easter event.

c. The entire focus of the Triduum is on the Triumph of the Cross and the Resurrection.
