Marriage is a very significant event and requires preparation to celebrate it properly. If you are planning to marry, the Diocesan policy is that you see a Priest and begin the preparation at least six months prior to the wedding date. Please call the rectory for an appointment.
Pope Francis streamlined the process to petition for a declaration of nullity to make the process shorter. He also eliminated the mandatory fee. If a person is able to prove in this process that their prior marital bond was invalid for some reason, then he or she can marry in the Catholic Church or validate a current civil marriage. For assistance in petitioning, you can contact Fr. PJ Camiring, Vanessa Mark, BJ Schreiner or Sister Lucinda at [808-988-3308] who can assist you as an advocate.

The doctrines of the Church states that Jesus Christ performed three functions (or "offices" munus triplex) in his earthly ministry – those of prophet, priest, and king. The kingly office of Jesus is the last and the most important salvific office of Jesus. He is the Judge of all judges, the king of prophets, and the high priest of all high priest. At the Advent Season, he revere Him as the Lord of all saviors and the only savior with authority. At Easter Season, He is the victorious High Priest who gave the most acceptable offering of all. Now, as the liturgical calendar comes to an end, we surrender to him our liberty and freedom, to make Him as our Great King. May we see the beauty of His face when His kingdom comes to completion. As he is the alpha, the beginning of all things, may we receive His just judgment as He is proclaimed as Omega, the end of all thing. ¡Viva Christo Rey!

Patron of the sick
The tradition of the Order of Mercy presents Serapion Scott as being born at the turn of the year 1178 in the British Isles, and a relative of the Scottish monarch. And even though the exact dates of his childhood and youth are unknown, later on his is seen at the side of King Richard the Lionhearted on the Third Crusade, fighting for the faith and for the liberation of the land where Jesus lived. Even then, he was busy caring for the captives who were being liberated in Palestine, and he too suffered in prison at the hands of the Duke of Austria, until he was set free by the latter's son, Leopold VII, whom he went on to accompany in the battles against the Saracens in Spain, at the Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa in 1212. After the victory, he retired to Burgos, leaving that city to accompany Leonore of Castile in 1221, who was headed to Aragon to marry King James I. In the following year, he became acquainted with Peter Nolasco in Daroca and entered the Order of Mercy.
Impelled by charity for the captives, he carried out several redemptions. On one of the redemptions traditionally attributed to him, he was accompanied by Raymond Nonnatus in 1229 and ransomed more than 150 captives. During the redemption in 1240, which he carried out with his companion Fr. Berenguer de Bañares in Algiers, he was taken hostage. Tradition has it that Saint Peter Nolasco wrote to Fr. Guillermo de Bas asking him to collect--without delay--the necessary goods with which to come to the aid of the redeemer. Since they did not have the price of ransom in time, St. Serapion was crucified on a cross like Saint Andrew, suffering a cruel martyrdom, as reflected in the Mercedarian iconography. He is said to have pronounced the following words while hanging on the cross: “O sweet and precious wood, the perfect image of the Wood on which my beloved Jesus died, through You I hope to ascend to eternal happiness!”
Because of his cruel martyrdom on the cross, he is the patron saint of those who suffer bone and joint paints. The blessing of oil in his honor is an ancient tradition of the Order that is included in the current Ritual.
Saint Serapion appears in the ancient Mercedarian liturgy, specifically in the 1560 breviary of Master General Miguel Puig, with a proper antiphon and prayer, although later he was removed from the Missal in the reform of 1576. His process of beatification was started in 1717 in Barcelona and Genoa, conducted by Manuel Ribera and José Rimón as procurators. On July 14, 1728, a decree was issued confirming his immemorial cult, and on August 24, 1743, he was included in the Roman Martyrology.
Stewardship of Earthly Treasure
Fr. William Kunisch,
Pastor of St. Anthony Church, Kailua, Oahu at Stewardship Day 2022. Fr. William explores the various concepts and practices found in both scripture and personal money management
Fr. William spoke of Tithing as a way to grow in holiness. In scripture, “Tithing” means a “tenth”. Giving ten percent of the first fruits of the harvest.…the first of the best. Tithes are given to the church on the Lord’s Day as an act of worship. Tithing is the purpose of our ministry to give gratitude for our past and keep our priority in the present. The promise of Tithing brings peace, contentment of what we have which leads to growth in the virtue of generosity and fosters happiness.
