RE Mission Statement

The mission of the catechetical program of St. Joseph Parish of Hilo, Hawaii, is to help all participants and their families develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and to live out their Catholic faith in ways that draw others to Christ and the Church. We seek to carry out this mission through catechesis, sacramental preparation, liturgy, and service.

RE Family Ministries’ Motto:

Let us meet Jesus in his sacraments and in his Holy Church.
