8:30 a.m. Mass on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22, 2018 at St. Theresa Church in Kekaha


During the month of November, we will be praying for all those whose names are listed on the ‘All Souls Day’ envelopes, as well as all of those whose names were on the luminary bags…such a beautiful sight and our beloved, deceased Veterans!  A small table of remembrance is located at St. Theresa Church.  At the end of our weekend Masses, Fr. Boyet will pray over the souls of all of our dearly departed loved ones.  

 

See’s CANDIES ~ St. Theresa School is having a fundraiser to help cover air conditioning expenses.  The heat on the westside of Kauai is relentless and our parish wants our STS Learners to have the best environment for learning!!!  Order forms are available at both parish Churches and from the STS Business Office.  Orders are due by Monday, Nov. 26 with pick-up on Friday, Dec. 21.  Please contact the STS Business Office at 337-1351 if you have any questions.

Just before the service started, we all looked up and saw this beautiful cloud formation and felt the presence of our loved ones and all the angels and saints…it was situated directly above those of us seated.  The second photo is as it drifted back to Heaven!

Heavenly visit.
Returning to the Lord

October – Month of the Family Rosary & Respect Life Month
We thank all the families that opened their homes to the praying of the Holy Rosary and for sharing their gracious hospitality with those in attendance.  Let us continue to pray the rosary as often as possible.   Some photos from this year’s home rosary visits:

Let us pray for the soul of our dear friend, Fr. Bob Udulutsch, OFM, CAP, who returned to the Lord on Monday, July 23.  Fr. Bob was a frequent visitor to our parish when Fr. Boyet and previous parish priests were on travel.  We thank God for sending him to us and ask that his dear soul rests in peace with the perpetual light shining upon him always!

Day 9 of the Divine Mercy Novena at Sacred Hearts of Jesus & Mary in Waimea
April 7, 2018

Respect Life Prayer: Heavenly Father, the beauty and dignity of human life was the crowning of your creation. You further ennobled that life when your Son became one with us in His incarnation. Help us to realize the sacredness of human life and to respect it from the moment of conception until the last moment at death. Give us courage to speak with truth and love and with conviction in defense of life. Help us to extend the gentle hand of mercy and forgiveness to those who do not reverence your gift of life. To all, grant pardon for the times we have failed to be grateful for your precious gift of life or to respect it in others. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
