For 2021 and 2022 the Hawaii KofC decided to embark on a lecture series on Catholic Apologetics. In Holy Scripture we are called to "always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you" The word ʻdefenseʻ in that passage comes from the Greek ʻapologiaʻ. This is where we get the concept of biblical apologetics. In our world today we as Catholics are often challenged on the tenets of our Faith. Whether it be our belief in the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist, our belief in Purgatory, our practice of the veneration of the saints, or our clear and uncompromising positions on issues like abortion, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, etc it is essential to understand why we ,as Catholics, hold these beliefs and also the best ways to explain our Catholic beliefs to those that ask us "to account for the hope that is in you" Click on the picture above to be brought the the Hawaii KofC Archive of all the Faith Lecture Series events.
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Chris Keahi, ss.cc. He passed away early this morning. Fr. Keahi provided for the pastoral needs of many in EPIC Ministry and his parishes over the years. He also lovingly served the TLM community at Blessed Sacrament.
On a personal note he was hugely influential in the lives of my children. My boys grew to love altar serving because of his encouragement. He will be missed my family and by a large number of folks in our diocese.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. ... May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
