Consecration to God the Father Ministry October 2
Please join us in prayer to honor God Our Father, Sunday, October 2 from 2:15-2:45 pm at St. Michael’s South Lanai. We will pray Consecration Prayers to God Our Father and Divine Mercy. The Consecration prayer helps us to acknowledge God as our Eternal Father, to honor Him, and to give Him our commitment to follow His commandments.
Way of the Cross for an End to Trafficking on Wednesdays
Each Wednesday at noon, we pray the Stations of the Cross at St. Michael’s for the safety of all those who are held captive by traffickers for either sex or agricultural work and usually have no way of escaping the status of slavery. The prayers were developed by Bishop Silva and require about twenty minutes of your time. Please join us!
Neighborhood/Traveling Rosary Inspires Community Prayer
“The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next.” – Archbishop Fulton Sheen
Display the Blessed Mother in your home and in-vite your Catholic neighbors to pray the Rosary with your family. For your week with the Blessed Mother, contact Beth Smith through the Parish Office.
The Children’s Rosary is a prayer group composed of and led by children. The next meeting is on Monday, October 3 at 5:30—6pm at Immaculate Conception Mission Church in Holualoa.
Meals That Heal Ministry
Dedicated volunteers prepare and deliver meals to those who are temporarily homebound or ill. This ministry is for those who will need a little extra assistance following surgery, someone who is undergoing medical treatment or someone who has just had a baby, etc. Often family and friends are able to help for a short time but our volunteers help to supplement that assistance by providing meals a few times a week for up to two months. Our goal is to help alleviate any extra stress on families during these times. It is a very beautiful way to let our Parish family know that we are thinking of them and praying for them. It is one small thing that we can do to show that we care. Please contact Cheryl Roderer at [email protected] com or call the parish office to join as a volunteer or to give us the name of a family who could benefit from this ministry.
Malama Ná Keiki Ministry
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink …” (Matthew 25:35)
This ministry to supply supplemental healthy meals to school children is done in collaboration with Holualoa Elementary School for children acknowledged by the school as food insecure. Volunteers shop for and pack food that is distributed on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. This enables children to have food for the weekend when free school lunch is not available to them. We are currently serving almost 40 keiki. Volunteers are needed on the 1st and 3rd Thursday mornings and the 1st and 3rd Saturday mornings of each month to assemble and distribute bags. If you are interested in serving with this ministry, please contact the parish office.
Gift Shop Ministry

Come join us and volunteer at least once a month on the North Lanai before or after the Sunday Mass you attend or during the weekday while the Gift Shop is open.
