Prepare ourselves for the Savior, the Christ Child.
We have opportunities for our Parish ‘Ohana
to join the liturgy by lighting the candles on the
Advent wreath prior to each Mass.

This is an excellent way to have your family join us in preparation. The schedule will be in the sacristy. Sign up via email Lei Shinoda Kaniumoe at the names and Mass Dates/Times. Make this a special Advent Season for your entire ‘Ohana.

Information volunteers should know:

  • Go to the sacristy at least 15 minutes prior to Mass and let the sacristan know that they are there.

  • The sacristan will review the process with them.

  • They will join the entrance procession behind the altar servers and walk forward.

  • They will stand in front of the first pew railing on the mauka side until they are called.

  • After the priest reverences the altar, he will call them forward by name.

  • They will come forward to the Advent wreath. One person will read a short prayer from the ambo.

    Another person will light the appropriate candle. The sacristan will have a lighter available.

  • Once the candle is lit, they may return to their seats. They do not need to sit in the first pew.

  • Dress code: modest or church-appropriate. As one minister puts it: No boobs, butts, or bellies.

Please help us extend the invitation to all who worship or who just needs that personal invite return. We are people of the light, so let His light shine in the darkness!
