To: All Members of the Diocese of Honolulu
From: Bishop Larry Silva
Date: October 13, 2020
Subject: Invitation to return to Mass and extended dispensation from obligation


Aloha, Sisters and Brothers! Peace be with you!

This year of 2020 has brought us many unprecedented experiences and major adjustments to our lives and livelihoods due to the coronavirus pandemic. While we must not let down our guard and continue to observe prudent hygiene measures, we also want to look optimistically to the future.

With Advent and Christmas coming, it is very important that we prepare ourselves well for these high holy days in which we celebrate the great gift of the Word of God taking flesh and dwelling among us. Therefore, I ask all the parishes to plan their Advent and Christmas schedules in such a way as to accommodate as many people as possible throughout these days.

Since mid-March through October 31, 2020 I have issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. I am hereby extending that dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation through December 31, 2020. As I do so, however, I urge everyone who is able to return to Mass, without undue risks to their health or the health of others, to do so.

Please note that in the Diocese of Honolulu, besides all Sundays, the holy days of obligation are the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception on Tuesday, December 8; and Christmas on Friday, December 25. Again, while all are dispensed from the obligation of attending, I urge you to do so if you can.

It is highly recommended that those who do avail themselves of the dispensation substitute some other prayer experience so that worship of God does not lose its primary focus in our lives. One could do a home holy hour, pray the rosary, celebrate the Liturgy of the Hours, or do some reading of spiritual books and articles, especially the lives of the saints. Of course, we also encourage anyone who cannot attend Mass to watch a live-streamed Mass. Sites are posted on our diocesan website at

We encourage everyone to reach out to those who may not hear this message on their own and invite them to “Come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord!”


Inherit the kingdom.

Today, on the feast of Christ the King, we celebrate Jesus’ sovereignty over all creation. We celebrate the fact that all things were created through him, all things are redeemed through him, and all people will be judged by him. It’s this last point—Jesus as judge—that today’s Gospel focuses on. It tells us that as our King, Jesus has the right to set the standard by which we will be judged. Other judges exercise their office based on the existing laws of the land. But Jesus is the law of the kingdom. His life, his way, is the standard by which we will be judged.

If you want to be a judge in this world, you have to know the law intimately. Just one word in one statute can affect the entire outcome of a case. Not so with Jesus. His law is simple. We will “inherit the kingdom” based on this guiding principle: “Whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me”. That’s the standard: mercy, generosity, and self-giving love.

It’s often said that you can’t take it with you, and there is a lot of truth to that. All our money, all our honors, all our possessions are temporary. They won’t follow us to heaven, and they can’t help us get in. But there is something we can take with us: our acts of charity. In fact, they are the very things that will open the gates of heaven to us!

Jesus will not be impressed if we have many possessions, and he will not be disappointed if we have just a few. What matters is whether we have let him soften our hearts so that we feed the hungry, forgive those who have sinned against us, and reach out to the lonely. Because his kingdom is not a kingdom of wealth and power; it is a kingdom of humility, love, and service.


“Jesus, my King and my Judge, teach me to love as you love.”

(taken from The Word Among Us)


The Legend of the First Thanksgiving

In 1620, the legend goes, a boat filled with more than one hundred people sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to settle in the New World. This religious group had begun to question the beliefs of the Church of England and they wanted to separate from it. The Pilgrims settled in what is now the state of Massachusetts. Their first winter in the New World was difficult. They had arrived too late to grow many crops, and without fresh food, half the colony died from disease. The following spring, the Wampanoag Iroquois Indians taught them how to grow corn (maize), a new food for the colonists. They showed them other crops to grow in the unfamiliar soil and how to hunt and fish.

In the autumn of 1621, bountiful crops of corn, barley, beans, and pumpkins were harvested. The colonists had much to be thankful for, so a feast was planned. They invited the local Iroquois chief and 90 members of his tribe.

The Native Americans brought deer to roast with the turkeys and other wild game offered by the colonists. The colonists learned how to cook cranberries and different kinds of corn and squash dishes from the Indians. In following years, many of the original colonists celebrated the autumn harvest with a feast of thanks

The COVID-19 virus forces us and our parishioners to grapple with a difficult reality. Amid self-isolation and "stay-at-home" orders, an increasing number of people are experiencing sickness and death separated from other people.

Liturgical Press

Liturgical Press (Collegeville, MN) has posted more free resources in their website that relate to healing and grief.

Website link:

Praying Together, Praying Apart: At-Home Prayers for Times of Healing, Illness, and Death is a new resource available for free download in their website and at the link below for praying in times of healing, illness and death.

Praying together, praying apart printable pdf

  • Part I: Prayers of Comfort, Hope, and Healing: These texts can be prayed by individuals, families, or other groups

  • Part II: Lucernarium for Healing: Lucernarium, or "service of light," grows out of the tradition in the early church of lighting lamps for evening prayer. This celebration of light rejoices in Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, the Light no darkness can overcome.

  • Part III: Rosary for Healing with Luke the Evangelist: The rosary is a prayer pathway that invites us to meditate on significant events in Jesus' life. The Rosary for Healing with Luke the Evangelist focuses on the healing mission and ministry of Jesus Christ, allowing us to enter more fully into the healing experiences within Luke's Gospel. Begin each decade by reading the corresponding Scripture passage.

  • Part IV: At-Home Service of Prayer when Someone Has Died: One of the realities of social distancing is the inability to gather as a community for wakes, funerals, and other memorial services when someone has died. This service of prayer is intended to give people a way to pray in their own homes as they grieve the loss of a loved one.

re classesMass Intentions


The best way to remember our dearly departed is by praying for them. And the best prayer we can offer is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Masses can be offered for health and healing, in thanksgiving, for birthday blessings, etc. So we encourage you to walk into the parish office and register. Donation of $10.00 per Mass is requested. Please make checks payable to: St.Pius X Church
