Welcome to Our Lady of Sorrow Parish
Our Lady of Sorrows Church is a Catholic, faith-filled community united and founded on the teachings and love of Jesus Christ to serve the needs of all parishioners and, through its ministries, to foster and nurture their growth in faith.
Our Lady of Sorrows Church believes in stewardship as a way of Christian living. As stewards, it is our responsibility to give back to God the best that He has given us, by giving of our time, talent and treasure.
As a unified and welcoming parish of the Universal Church, we reach out to all of God's people through education, through social action, through worship and through proclaiming and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Reservations for Weekend Masses
** All weekend Masses require reservations. **
Bishop Larry Silva has dispensed the obligation to attend Sunday Mass through October 31st, so attendance at our weekly Masses remains optional. Social distancing rules will continue to be enforced as well as the limitation of the amount of people allowed in the church at any given time. All those attending the Mass are required to reserve a spot for each weekend Mass.
Those who are at high risk, such as the elderly and immuno-compromised, are asked to remain home. Anyone who shows symptoms of the coronavirus or any contagious disease, such as a fever, are also asked to remain home.
Reservations for individual spots for each adult, including teens and older children, are required. Parents with young children may reserve one spot per adult with the child(ren) to sit next to them.
Everyone who comes to the church must wear a mask (except for children age two and younger).
Please keep a six-foot distance from one another while at the church.
Use the following calendar to make your reservation today.

From the Office of the Bishop
Extension of Dispensation
from Sunday Mass Obligation
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, Bishop Silva extends the dispensation of all the people of the Diocese of Honolulu and all visitors to the Diocese of Honolulu from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass through December 31, 2020. All who are able to attend Sunday Mass without putting themselves or others at serious risk of infection are encouraged to do so but are not obliged to do so.
Please continue your stewardship
We will need to sustain our parish financially during the next several weeks.
You can mail your Offering/Tithe and Forward and Faith contributions to the church, but a better/easier way to contribute is by creating an online giving account.
To create an online giving account, click “ONLINE SUNDAY GIVING” to get started. It will take only a few minutes to set this up using a credit/debit card. It is safe and secure, doesn’t require our volunteers to handle cash, provides the most accurate record of your giving, and it will greatly help support our parish’s essential needs.
Thank you in advance for your continuing financial stewardship through this time.
Knights of Columbus Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest
Special message from last year's contest winner, Kai Guzior.
Aloha! Council 6302 invites 8th-12th graders to participate in this year's Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest. In an essay of 500-750 words, discuss how trusting in God during a difficult time has helped you or someone you know find the strength and hope to endure it. Consider especially those times when it was a challenge to understand why something was happening. Consider also sharing any lessons about faith and hope you or someone you know may have learned from this experience.
"Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy" (1 Peter 1:8).
