We are here to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Serving as both a Catholic campus ministry and local parish, Newman Center Hawaiʻi invites you to join us for Mass and our many faith – and fellowship-building activities for all ages. Come, and be inspired.


Please read the following directives issued by Bishop Silva:

  • Parish churches, chapels, oratories, centers, and missions are to be closed to the public through April 30, 2020, or until further notice.
  • All liturgical and sacramental celebrations from now through April 30 are canceled, including those during Holy Week, the Paschal Triduum, and Easter Sunday. The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays is dispensed through April 30, 2020.
  • The celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, First Communion) for the Elect, normally celebrated at the Easter Vigil, are postponed to a future day after the Covid-19 crisis subsides. A future date when these sacraments may be rescheduled will be announced by the Bishop.
  • The faithful are encouraged to keep the Lord’s Day holy. Some ways to do this include: reading the Scriptures of the day, especially the Gospels, praying with your families, and to joining yourself to the sacrifice of the Mass by making an act of spiritual communion.
    For more information and resources, please visit our website at www.catholichawaii.org.
  • Sacramental confessions will not be offered, for the safety of penitents and priests, Confessions by phone or via the internet are not permitted. General absolution is not permitted, because it presumes a gathering of people.

Let us pray for each other!
