Generous and Loving Creator, you have called us to Malama I ka Makana (Cherish the Gift).
As disciples of your Son, we ask that your Spirit open our minds and hearts to more deeply appreciate your countless blessings.
Increase your transforming spirit within us, so as to nurture our call to stewardship as a way of life marked always by faith-filled prayer, service to others and generous giving.
With the kokua of St. Marianne and St. Damien, teach us to be good stewards so we may return a hundred-fold the makana entrusted to us.
We pray this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Our parish reaches out to those in need through food and clothing drives, preparing dinners for the KEO Homeless Shelter, and ministering to the elderly and homebound.

We, the parish community of Immaculate Conception, are a multi-ethnic people, who in our diversity find our strong sense of unity in our belief in Jesus Christ. We initially express our belief in Christ Jesus through Baptism which binds us as a community. We are a unique community of the universal Roman Catholic community. We find our uniqueness in living within the district of Lihue, with its culture and its traditions. In common with all Roman Catholic communities, our faith and life together is nourished by the Eucharist which is the source and summit of our lives and our mission.
As a community centered in the Eucharist, we are a people compelled to mission. Our mission is threefold: outreach to the unevangelized, the broken, and the poor; unity among ourselves while respecting our diversity; and renewal of our identity as Disciples of Christ. We fulfill our mission through education, social action and human services; community participation on all levels; and availability and soliciting input.
Because we place ourselves under the patronage of Mary, the Mother of Jesus and our mother under her title of the Immaculate Conception, we have a particular love and concern for your young people in our church community and the community at large. Mary, our patron, nurtured and cared for her Son. Imitating her spirit, young people are of the highest priority in all of our activities and programs.
