Help for Kauai Flood Recovery

April 23, 2018

A few people/parishes have asked if there is anything they can do to offer relief to people of Kauai who are suffering from the effects of the recent flooding there.  While our State government has set aside emergency funds for recovery, there are some needs that are unlikely to be covered by government funds because they are church-related.  Father Anthony Rapozo, Pastor of St. Catherine Church, Kapaa, Kauai, has informed us that St. William Mission in Hanalei was completely flooded, and that it will need extensive repairs and refurbishing.  He has provided a list of needs for the recovery of St. William Mission, which is attached HERE.  If you would like to encourage donations (including a second collection, if desired) to help with this recovery, please do so through the Diocesan Finance Office, 1184 Bishop Street, Honolulu, HI 96813.  Be sure to designate the donation as “For St. William Church Flood Recovery.”  The entire amount will be sent to St. Catherine Parish specifically for the designated use.  Thank you very much for your care and generosity!  + Bishop Larry Silva
