The Welcoming Prayer

Fr. Patrick Freitas, a retired Maui-born diocesan priest, finds daily solace in “The Welcoming Prayer.” When we’re feeling overwhelmed, alone, or in despair, we can meditate on this prayer, acknowledge our feelings, and give them up to the Lord.

Democracy Values and the 2020 Election: A Reflection Guide for Faith Communities

Listen in to this week’s podcast from Fr. Rollie:

Season 1, Episode 41. Jesus said, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.” We give to God all the praise and worship and thanksgiving for the many blessings and gifts He has given us. And at the same time we are citizens of the United States and are called to fulfill our obligation not only by paying taxes, but by being involved in the government. We all have the obligation to vote. To read more about the “Democracy Values & the 2020 Election: A Reflection Guide for Faith Communities” that Fr. Rollie references, go to

We miss you all.

St. Anthony will be selling 2021 limited release calendars beginning October 27. The calendar will give you hints of our rich history. So many worked tirelessly to build and improve on everything we know as St. Anthony Church and School. The pictures in this calendar are the history of our Church and community.

Only 500 calendars have been printed for sales and are available for purchase from St. Anthony Church.

Public Calendar Sale will begin on Tuesday, October 27, 2020, from the Church Office. Calendars will be available from the Church Office Tuesdays to Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.

Why are we selling calendars?
2021 Calendar Project will help raise additional revenue to make up for the decrease in weekly donations because of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to the generous donations of some parishioners, the cost of printing the calendars have been covered, enabling all proceeds from the calendar sale to be deposited into the St. Anthony’s Building Fund.

How much and where do we get one?
$15.00. Cash or checks only. Reserve your copy today!

To reserve your copy, mail or drop off your payment and order form to the Church Office:

St. Anthony of Padua Church

Can you mail it to me?
Yes! For off-island Alumni and former parishioners who would like to support our Calendar Project, we have a Mail Order option (see mail order form below). Any Mail Orders received will be mailed out after October 27, 2020.

Why buy this calendar?
The calendar gives you a hint of our rich history. So many came before us. So many worked tirelessly to build and improve on everything we know as St. Anthony Church and School. These pictures are the history of our Church and community and will make great gifts, especially for Christmas.

Update: July 26 Masses

Good Morning St. Anthony parishioners,

A hurricane watch is in effect. Do not go out if you don’t need to. Though the Masses are still scheduled, please use your best judgment about attending Mass.

NOTE: It is OK to stay home. Even if you are scheduled to serve today.

You can still attend VIRTUALLY by rewatching last night’s Mass on Facebook, on our website, or on our YouTube page.

Stay safe and take care.
May God Bless You Always.
