July 21, ’18: Young Adults’ Sports Day

FAITH, FRIENDSHIP, & FUN

This past Saturday, July 21, Newman Center collaborated with several other parishes in the Diocese of Honolulu to participate in the Young Adults’ Sports Day event. Hosted on the lawn of Mary, Star of the Sea Parish in Kāhala, the sports day provided our Newman youth and young adults a chance to play several rounds of volleyball and tug of war against those of other island parishes. Sporting a red t-shirt with “Newman Knights” on it, our team did quite well and felt fulfilled!

A day like this is a perfect way to bridge friendship with faith and fun!
