Dear Parishioners and Friends,

 St. Joseph Church, Hilo

Congratulations! St. Joseph Church
100th Year Dedication anniversary.

It is a great honor to be part of the history in this vibrant community of St. Joseph Church in Hilo. It has been one hundred years since the Dedication of the Church that stands as a landmark of the Catholic Heritage on the East side of the beautiful Island of Hawai'i.

On our part, we will continue the legacy of our ancestors who laid a strong foundation for our Church. We will strive to build our church as a Community of Disciples ready to face the challenges of the future amid economic and political storms, ethnic diversities and popular culture.

I would like to express my gratitude to all our parishioners, lay leaders and especially our rectory office staff, who have worked so hard from the beginning until today to share their time, talent and treasure with all of us. You are the instruments of God's loving presence in His Church. We will take pride in being a true Witness to Jesus to pass on the faith to the next generations.

God bless and Mahalo Nui Loa!

In Christ,

Fr. Wilbert A. Laroga, SSS
