Columbarium Survey Results
Catholic Management Services worked with six parishes who participated in the survey in regards to a parish columbaria program.
There appears to be a significant interest and opportunity to provide cremation interment at the pilot parishes.
This demand is sufficient to establish and staff a diocesan department, which could later expand the cremation offerings to all parishes.
There is more significant demand for full body burial than expected.
St. Jude results: (survey taken in October 2016)
o Roughly half of parishioners have no plans at all.
o A similar portion feel ill-informed about end-of-life arrangements.
o A surprising number are still considering burial options – 60%.
o 96% stated that they would like to use the parish church for their Vigil or Funeral Mass.
o There was overwhelming support for options within the grounds of the church – 88%.
o There was also a significant interest in memorializing other family members who were interred elsewhere – 70%.
o Families would like to receive more information either by a parish presentation or by mail.
o Results confirm that financial issues are not a significant motivation.

Diocese of Honolulu 2017 Lenten Regulations
In the dioceses in the United States, Catholics aged 18 through 59 are bound to fast on both Ash Wednesday (March 1st) and Good Friday (April 14th).
¨ To fast means to consume one full meal a day at most, although taking of other, smaller quantities of food at the other customary mealtimes is permitted. Food and drink between meals (excepting water and medicine) is not permitted on fast days.
ABSTINENCE FROM MEAT
¨ Catholics aged 14 and up are to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday.
¨ To abstain means refraining from eating beef, veal, pork, or poultry at least, although eggs and milk products are acceptable. The consumption of fish and shellfish is permitted, though the penitential character of the abstinence should be kept in mind.
All the faithful, after they have been initiated into the Most Holy Eucharist, are bound by the obligation of receiving Communion at least once a year. This precept is to be fulfilled during the Easter Season unless it is fulfilled, for a just cause, at some other time during the year. This period is extended to include all the weeks of Lent and the Easter Season up to Trinity Sunday (June 11th).
The faithful are encouraged during Lent to attend daily Mass, receive Holy Communion, participate in penance services, and receive sacramental absolution; to take part in public and private exercises of piety, give generously to works of religion and charity, perform acts of kindness toward the sick, aged, and the poor; to practice voluntary self-denial, especially regarding food, drink, and worldly amusements; and to pray more fervently, particularly for the intentions of the Holy Father.
