The Sacrament of Holy Orders
All members of the Church participate in the priesthood of all believers through Baptism. However, some men are called to serve Jesus and the Church today through the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Orders. Through their leadership in the Church, they help continue Jesus’ presence on earth in the tradition of the apostles.
These are just two of the Diocese of Honolulu's eleven seminarians who are studying to become priests. Local boy Kurt Meyer spend the summer of 2019 at our parish and Francis Hai Pham, from Middle Vietnam, spent the 2020 summer with us. Both of them are pictured here at St. Patrick's Seminary in Menlo Park, California. Aug. 20, 2020.
