Bustling August for Hawaii Catholic Schools Office

September 17, 2018

Our Hawaii Catholic Schools office had a very busy month! 


First on August 11th, we welcomed over 60 new employees to our network of schools with the annual Diocesan New Personnel Orientation. 













That was followed by an even bigger welcoming with the Mass for the Opening of the School Year/175th Anniversary of the Dedication of the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace.  Bishop Larry Silva warmly greeted and blessed about 1,000 of our schools’ administrators and staff in attendance at St. Ann Church on August 16th. 






Mass was followed by international motivational speaker, Jonathan Doyle.  Through a grant from the Hawaii Catholic Community Foundation, our schools' administrators and staff were able to hear from the author of best-selling book Tools and Fuels, How Catholic Teachers Can Become Saints, Beat Burnout and Save The World











Priests with schools and their respective Principals stayed even later for our annual Pastor/Principal Summit.  









The month closed with our yearly Mandatory Administrators’ Meeting here at St. Stephens Diocesan Center on August 21st.  Looks like we’re off to a great start for the 2018-2019 school year!
