St. Jude Purchases 11 Acres in Kapolei
Friday, October 17, 2014 10:00 AM
We have some exciting news...
The parish has purchased 11 acres at Leihano, a mixed-use community in Kapolei that when fully developed, is expected to include Ilima at Leihano, a senior living community opening in the Fall 2015; retail shops; a hotel; and residential uses. An affiliate of Kisco Senior Living serves as master-developer for the 40-acre Leihano development and was the seller of the 11-acre site.
Our parish will be responsible for creating a relocated parish site, which will include both the land and parish buildings. The site is located directly south of Kapolei Regional Park on Kama’aha Avenue, between Fort Barrette Road and Manawai Street.
Special thanks goes out to those who have supported our parish in its planning and to those who were instrumental in seeking, evaluating, and approving the purchase of the parcel. Our work is only beginning, but each milestone needs to be celebrated and each of you, as the hands of the Holy Spirit, needs to be thanked.

Thank You for Your Generosity!
Thank you for your contributions towards the second collection for World Mission Sunday! Through your generosity we collected $2,648.00 last weekend!
Pope John Paul II has also spoken of the Propagation of the Faith's General Fund of support, calling this a "central fund of solidarity." In a message delivered on a recent World Mission Sunday, the Pope said: "The offerings that will be collected [on World Mission Sunday] are destined for a common fund of solidarity distributed, in the Pope's name, by the Society for the Propagation of the Faith among the missions and missionaries of the entire world."
Every year the needs of the Catholic Church in the Missions grow - as new dioceses are formed, as new seminaries are opened because of the growing number of young men hearing Christ's call to follow Him as priests, as areas devastated by war or natural disaster are rebuilt, and as other areas, long suppressed, are opening up to hear the message of Christ and His Church. That is why the involvement and commitment of Catholics from around the world is so urgently needed. Offerings from Catholics in the United States, on World Mission Sunday and throughout the year, are combined with offerings to the Propagation of the Faith worldwide.
Your gift will help support our missions throughout the world! Thank you again for your generosity!
