FUNERALS & MEMORIALS

Please let us know right away if a member of our parish community has died. We grieve with you and want to help in any way we can. Know that we will be praying for your family. 

Funerals and memorials are not sacraments, but rather a liturgical celebration of the Church for the life of the deceased. The Rite of Christian Burial recalls the baptism of our loved one and our gratitude for the consolation of the Resurrection. The gift of faith, witnessed in the celebration of the Eucharist, speaks powerfully at times of loss and grieving.

After you have contacted your chosen mortuary, please have them call our parish office at (808) 245-2432 to confirm a funeral date with the church. After the funeral date has been confirmed with the church, Deacon Bill Farias, Sr., our funeral coordinator, will schedule a meeting with your family to select Mass readings and answer questions you may have regarding the funeral.
