Church News & Announcements

Lent: ‘Return to me with your whole heart’

 

Lent begins on Wednesday and from Ash Wednesday on  the readings make God’s call to us clear: “Return to me with your whole heart.”  During Lent, the Church calls us to prayer, fasting, almsgiving and penance.  Prayer deepens our relationship with God. Fasting helps us to be more aware of our sisters and brothers in need and reminds us to be selfless. Almsgiving is a way of practicing generosity and  reminds us that all that we have is a gift and is meant to be shared. Through penance and the Sacrament of Reconciliation we can  change sinful patterns.

The Church offers us many opportunities to grow during Lent:

Prayer

Daily Mass: Monday-Friday,7 am and 5 pm.; Saturday: 7 am

Liturgy of the Hours: 6:30 a.m. Monday-Saturday

Stations of the Cross: 5:30 pm Fridays, 7 pm in Tongan.

Parish Mission: March 24-26

Diocesan daily online retreat: Get an email each day with a story or quote from the life, spirituality and work of St. Damien a reflection question and access to the day’s Scripture readings. Go to catholichawaii.org/damienretreat to register.

Fasting

The two days of  fasting during Lent are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. But penitential fasting during Lent also is a wonderful exercise whenever we want to sincerely ask for an important grace from God.  It is not that our fasting “earns” God’s attention, but by fasting, we clarify our thinking and our feeling.  It is purifying and prepares us to pray more deeply.

Almsgiving

Operation Rice Bowl: Practice almsgiving through Operation Rice Bowl and benefit those served by Catholic Relief Service throughout the world. Rice bowls will be available at the church entrances. Return the Rice Bowl with your monetary donations at Holy Thursday Mass.

Lent food drive: Collection of non-perishable, unopened food items (not past expiration date) to Palm Sunday.

Sacrificial giving:  Lent is a good time to practice sacrificial giving. Do I need that daily latte or yet another gadget or new outfit? Would my money be better spent in outreach to the poor and marginalized? Do I give enough back to God?

Penance

To abstain is to not eat meat or any meat byproducts.  Its purpose is to be an act of penance – an act of sacrifice, that helps us grow in freedom to make much bigger sacrifices. The prescribed days of abstinence are Ash Wednesday and every Friday during Lent.

Sacrament of Reconciliation: 6:30-6:45 am. and 4:30-4:45 pm. Tuesday-Thursday; 3-4 pm. Saturday.

Parish Communal Lent Reconciliation Service: March 26.
