"The Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Church in the State of Hawaii. We embrace our rich history founded on generations of faith filled Catholics greatly enhanced by the legacy of Saints Damien and Marianne. Our parish life centers on worship and on being a source of spiritual and sacramental nourishment. We strive to welcome people from many different places and backgrounds."

All Souls Day Collection
All Souls’ Day is a day for commemoration of all the faithful departed, those baptized Christians who are believed to be in purgatory because they died with the guilt of lesser sins on their souls. It is observed on November 2. The prayers of the faithful on earth will help cleanse these souls in order to fit them for the vision of God in heaven, and the day is dedicated to prayer and remembrance.

1st Annual Diocesan Priests' Retirement Fund
1st Annual Diocesan Priests' Retirement Fund Second Collection the weekend of November 7 and 8. They were there for us.
Be there for them now.
Imagine how many thousands of Masses they celebrated so that we could be nourished with the Bread of Life; how many thousands of confessions they heard to reconcile us sinners with our merciful Lord. Ponder the thousands of people who experienced the saving waters of Baptism, poured out by their hands; the countless couples they witnessed joining themselves together as one in Holy Matrimony; the scores of sick people they visited with the healing sacrament of Anointing. Our 23 retired priests dedicated themselves over many years to the service of God's people, and we are grateful for the service they have rendered to our community.
Your donations supplement the Diocesan Pension Fund, covering the cots of sustenance, housing, medical and dental insurance, and other needs as our retired priests move into their elder years. Thank you for your support to our retired Diocesan Priests!

Cathedral Basilica Renewal Campaign
Planned giving provides a donor with a set of ways a donor can leave money or assets to a charitable organization at his or her death; or a way to invest money so that the donor receives benefits during his or her life and then bequeaths the remaining funds to the Cathedral. A bequest is the simplest type of planned gift to make and one of the easiest to implement. Cash, securities, real estate, or personal property can be given to the Cathedral and the Renewal Campaign through a will or trust. Please contact the Cathedral Renewal Campaign Director, Kamalani Rodrigues at (808) 585-3357, if you’re considering a planned gift to the Cathedral.
