Office of Religious Education

The Office of Religious Education provides leadership and support for Catholic parish and school catechetical leaders within the Diocese of Honolulu on our shared mission to catechize and evangelize.


"A particular responsibility…for each of you, and your colleagues, is to evoke the desire for the act of faith (in others), encouraging them to commit themselves to the ecclesial life that follows from this belief."

-Pope Benedict XVI
