ON-LINE GIVING PORTAL:

Message from our Diocese:

To help support our parishes during this time, the Diocese has setup an Online Parish Offertory page at:

www.catholichawaii.org/offertory

On the Online Offertory page, donors can give to any of the parishes within the Diocese of Honolulu. 100% of the donor’s gift will go toward his/her selected parish(es). Donated funds will be deposited into the parish PSRF savings account.

There is no cost to the parish for this service. The Diocese will cover the fees (e.g. merchant services). The Diocese will also generate donor tax acknowledgement letters for any gifts given via the Online Parish Offertory page.

BEWARE-COVID-19 Scam Emails

This past weekend, a parishioner received an email claiming to be from Bishop Larry Silva requesting gift cards to help a priest with COVID-19. This is a scam email. DO NOT reply to the email, ignore and delete it.

Bishop Silva has reconfirmed that he will never send an email asking an individual for money, gift cards or any other gift. Hallmark signs of phishing and scam emails often include bad grammar, bad spelling, threats to do damage, and a short deadline to pay money with a link.

Below are some tips if you receive a phishing or scam email:

  • Don’t reply back to the sender. Doing so alerts the sender to the fact that this is a live email account.
  • Instead, call the alleged sender directly on their official phone line and ask if they sent the email.
  • Don’t click on any links in the email. Instead hover over a link to see the full web address and whether it might be coming from a suspicious site that could install malware on your computer or try and get your sensitive information like log-ins, personal data or financial details.
  • If you’d like to alert the diocese to the fact that an email pretending to be someone related to the church is circulating, you can forward it to: ithelpdesk@rcchawaii.org.

REPAIR & MAINTENANCE



My dear parishioners—I wanted to let you know that we will soon be repairing the potholes in our parking lot! During that time the gates will be closed and access will be restricted to the Kapiolani Street entrance. Thank you for your cooperation.

We just finished a repair to the exterior of the rectory thanks to David Mendiola and crew!

Please continue to support our R & M collections so that we may continue the upkeep our beautiful church and rectory! May God bless you!
