Thu, 8/20/20: Latest Protocols

Current as of 8/10/20, the latest words on Emergency Orders from the City and County of Honolulu can be read in full: [HERE].

General guidance from the Diocese with regard to Mass and other sacraments can be found: [HERE].

Daily Masses at Holy Family are Monday - Friday at 8 a.m.

Regular Weekend Masses are 5 p.m. Saturday; Sunday at 8 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Confessions are 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays and by appointment.

All masses are able to accommodate "walk-ins" up to a maximum church capacity of 100 persons, due to social distancing guidelines; "first-come/first-seated". 6 foot distances must be maintained between each household. Masks must be worn by all participants at all times except when receiving Holy Communion. Those who are ill, showing symptoms of illness, or who have health conditions prohibiting them from wearing a mask in public are kindly asked to refrain from participating in the public Mass until their health recovers.

There will be no processions before, after, or during the Mass; no physical contact during the Our Father; the congregational sign of peace will be omitted between households; Holy Communion will be distributed under one species (the Eucharist); the communicant may opt to receive communion in the hand or on the tongue; all ministers of Holy Communion, including clergy, will sanitize their hands immediately before and after distributing Holy Communion. All singing and chanting is suspended until further notice.

If you or a loved one was originally scheduled to receive any of the Sacraments of Initiation this Pentecost (May 30/31, 2020), please read this [POST] and fill out the link in the green banner if you or your loved one still require one of these sacraments.

At present, wedding and funeral Masses are possible at Holy Family and fall under the same restrictions as our regular Mass events.
