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!

Building Hope and Community for Generations:The Capital Campaign for St. Jude at Leihano




The Building Hope & Community for Generations Campaign projects outlined HERE are
shaped by the evolving needs of our parish, and are rooted in our mission to see
Jesus Christ in our lives every day and to spread the Good News of his salvation. With
larger and more inviting facilities, coupled with adequate space to fulfill our vibrant
ministries, we hope that more Catholics in West Oahu see St. Jude as a destination and
choose to worship here, continuing to build our vibrant community. 
With over $2 million already raised towards our $3 million goal, we are 67% of the way!
This amount comes from 100+ pledges—an average five-year pledged commitment of
over $18,000! Thank you to our early donors and tireless volunteers for helping us get
this far! 

Successfully raising $3 million will require the participation of a united parish. In the
coming weeks, you will receive more information in the mail and at Mass. If a parish
volunteer contacts you, please receive their call warmly as they request a few minutes
of your time to discuss the campaign and the opportunities it presents to us as a faith
