Each week, after the Thursday 8 a.m. Mass at Holy Family Parish in the airport area of Honolulu, a small group gathers on the covered lanai just outside the church for an hour of movement and meditation centered on praying a full five mysteries of the rosary.

On June 22, seven women gathered for the class, led by Janice Nguyen, a certified SoulCore instructor.

A rosary encircled an Our Lady of Guadalupe votive candle next to a crucifix as gentle Christian instrumental music played from a portable speaker. Sun, rain sprinkles and a constant breeze accompanied the women as Nguyen led them through all five decades of the rosary. Read more...

Next ‘Ohana Mass on Saturday, July 22

From the Office for Social Ministry

Next ‘Ohana Mass at Mary, Star of the Sea Parish on Saturday, July 22, 2023 at 5:30 p.m. All are Welcome!

At Mary, Star of the Sea Church on Oahu, parishioners have established their Ministry for Persons with Disabilities by welcoming persons with varying gifts and abilities to celebrate the “‘Ohana Mass.” Ushers who are members of the Knights of Columbus offer a warm welcome and escort them to the designated pews where they were able to better participate in the Eucharist. After Mass, the community continues fellowship together through a potluck supper where all joyfully serve each other with nourishing food and aloha. These “‘Ohana Masses” and potluck fellowship normally take place on the fourth Saturday each month, 5:30 PM at Mary, Star of the Sea where all are welcomed to celebrate and share their gifts as one ‘Ohana.

Livestream available at Mary, Star of the Sea's YouTube Channel.

Saint of the Week

Saint Camillus de Lellis
Memorial – July 18

Camillus was born in the Kingdom of Naples. His mother was in her late forties when he was born, and his father was a soldier who was often away from home. Before his birth, his mother had a dream that she would give birth to a son who would wear a red cross on his chest and lead others with the same cross. However, Camillus’ mother died when he was young, leaving him mostly on his own. In his teenage years, Camillus joined his father on military campaigns where he fell into the vice of gambling and constantly experienced destitution. He wounded his leg on one campaign, which never properly healed. Read more...
