Advocates for Annulment Process
Pope Francis has streamlined the process to petition for a declaration of nullity to make the process shorter. He also eliminated the mandatory fee. For assistance in petitioning, the following persons are Advocates for St. Michael’s: Deacon Sándor Hernández Morales, Meali’inani Duarte-Morales, Rosana Knudson, and Judy Glickstein. Call the office at (808) 326-7771 to leave a message for one of them to call you.
Spam Emails Posing as Our Clergy are Fake

Did You Know About Free Catholic Laudate App?
The most popular and most comprehensive free Catholic App. Laudate includes many awesome resources such as an interactive Rosary, Daily Readings, the Liturgy of the Hours, the Roman Missal changes, and the NAB and Douay-Rheims versions of the bible – all in a simple to navigate layout. But what makes this app shine for me is the HUGE selection of prayers – in both Latin and English!
They are sorted into intuitive groups such as the “Marian Group” and “Mass Group” and you can even create your own folder of “My Prayers” to easily access your favorites. The font size and color scheme are customizable, and there are six language options. The developers are also constantly updating this app, providing a huge selection of up to date, bug-free content.
You can download for free to your iPhone, android and/or iPad. Just search in your app store.
If you know someone in need of prayers, we can place them on the Prayer List. All information is confidential. Part of what the Charismatic Prayer Group does on Tuesday evenings when they gather, is pray for those on the Prayer List. Contact the parish office before the end of the month to add a name to the list.
