Diocese of Honolulu Response to the Coronavirus

UPDATE: "Parish churches, chapels, oratories, centers, and missions are to be closed to the public through April 30, 2020, or until further notice...All liturgical and sacramental celebrations from now through April 30 are canceled, including those during Holy Week, the Paschal Triduum, and Easter Sunday.  The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays is dispensed through April 30, 2020."   Bishop Larry Silva - March 27, 2020 (Read More)

NOTE: Bishop Silva wishes to clarify that his memo dated March 27, 2020 ordering the closing of all churches, does not apply to food pantries or food distribution activities, since these are essential services provided to those in need. Governor Ige’s stay-at-home order allows the exemption for those going to buy food, so it should also apply to those who are receiving necessary food from food pantries. HOWEVER, all workers at the food pantries must have procedures that still allow proper social distancing and the safety of workers and clients. Each location should have procedures to ensure these safeguards are in place.
