Welcome Back Video Message from Fr. Roland Bunda

We are looking forward to being together soon. Even as restrictions are lifted, we are aware of the COVID-19 situation, so we have new required regulations in place. As we reopen to celebrate the Eucharist together, it will be different than what weʻve been used to. These protocols are to keep you, and all of our parish community, safe during this time.

Please watch the video message from Fr. Roland Bunda about our return to in-person Masses at St. Anthony Maui.


Safety of Parishioners

  • Because we care about your safety, no one with a fever or symptoms of COVID-19 may enter. We also ask that if you or anyone in your family is not feeling well, please stay at home.
  • The church will be fully disinfected before each mass.
  • We want to assure you that we will be using safe practices as your health and wellbeing is our foremost consideration.
  • Face masks are required for all parishioners over the age of 5.

Social Distancing

  • From the time you arrive at the church till you leave after Mass, we will practice 6-foot social distancing. 
  • Outside you will find that we have marked the concrete floors with spacing between you and others while you wait to enter. 
  • Observe 6-foot social distancing while in line for communion.

Seat Reservation System

Because the number of available seats will be much less than usual (approximately 108).

Phone and online seat reservations are necessary to assure everyone can have a seat – even if it means participating in a different mass than you are used to.

 Sunday Obligation

  • There will be 4 weekend Masses and 7 daily Masses that you can attend to fulfill your Sunday obligation.
  • If you are still concerned about your safety, please do not feel the need to attend, for now.

  • As a reminder Bishop Larry Silva has provided a dispensation to attend Sunday Mass through August 31.
