postheadericon St. Jude "Senior Prom" ~ 2017



On the evening of Saturday, September 16th,  St. Jude Church treated our "seasoned" parishioners, ages 65 and older, to a gala event under the stars.

Under the protection of a festive white tent, our seniors (dressed to the nines!) were escorted to their seats. 
This formal setting set the tone for a special evening, of pampering and fun!  Door prizes were given away, and guests enjoyed a served dinner and exceptional entertainment.
Music was provided by John Baraquio and Friends and the hilarious Frank DeLima!
A heart-felt mahalo goes out to our wonderful volunteers and committee ~  You all did a fantastic job

postheadericon 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.

Steve Uyehara conducted the interview, which focused on St. Jude's campaign

to build a new church and its role within the broader community of West Oahu

amidst rapid regional economic growth.


Father Khanh shared the success of the congregation phase of our campaign

through the blessisngs and generosity of you, our parish.  The initial $3 million

goal for the parish was exceeded this weekend, as you participated in

"Commitment Weekend."  While hundreds of pledges are still being processed,

preliminary results indicate at least 107% of our initial target was raised.


Early estimates also indicate that nearly $1 million was raised by the

conclusion of Sunday's 5pm Mass, with over 100 additional families

still praying over their support.


By announcing the campaign on "Hawaii News Now", we are raising our sight in

terms of broader community suport and continue to welcome pledges and

donations from parishioners and members of the broader community.


We have many goals we hope to achieve on our road to Leihano.

On behalf of Father Khanh and the legion of devoted campaign volunteers, we

are so humbled by your outpouring of blessings and generosity this weekend.

Mahalo nui loa for your demonstration of faith, stewardship, and hope

for our next generations.


Stay tuned for final Commitment Weekend results and photos

to be posted here as soon as they are available!
