Kauai Vicariate Youth and their coordinators at
this year’s World Vision Famine Retreat

On March 8-9, the Kauai Vicariate had its first Famine Retreat.  Following the program created by World Vision, a Catholic humanitarian relief agency similar to CRS, students learned about the less fortunate people in Africa who are suffering from malnutrition and famine, while fasting for 24 hours.

This year is the first time that members from other parishes joined St. Theresa´s youth group for the famine retreat.  It was held over 1 day and 1 night at St. Catherine´s School in Kapa´a.  Students from St. Theresa, Immaculate Conception, and St. Catherine´s Parish worked together to perform tasks, play games, and discuss major world issues that affect our brothers and sisters around the world.
 
The students willingly gave up part of their weekend to come together and learn more about those who face famine in their daily lives.  Tying the retreat in to the season of Lent, the Famine was definitely a big sacrifice combined with a fun-filled weekend.  We´re already looking forward to next year´s famine.

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.

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.
