"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."

"This Is Not A Drill"- A Documentary on the False Missile Alert- Presented by Hawaii News Now
“Normally when a person sins, they go to confession to a priest, it’s very private, and then they receive the Lord’s
forgiveness,” said Bishop Larry Silva. He continued, “In general absolution, there’s a special provision for emergencies …
and I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Those are the words that I
said.”- Bishop Larry Silva
You can watch Bishop Larry's full interview in the Hawaii News Now documentary, “This is Not a Drill”, available on Hawaii News Now's Youtube website
2021 Diocesan Priests' Retirement Fund
This is a different collection from the Religious Retirement Fund that is done each December. In concert with Good Shepherd Sunday (April 24/25), we are asked to prayerfully consider giving generously to this collection that will directly support our priests who are in their retirement years. They have given their lives shepherding our communities, and we pray that they are adequately cared for, in this next chapter of their lives. Mahalo for your support!
2020 Annual Stewardship Report now available
Each one of us is called to help build a parish culture where all members come to understand their giftedness, their role as stewards of their gifts, and how they can graciously return their gifts to God for his glory. As disciples of Jesus, reflect back with us on our year of stewardship of our parish, the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace.

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.
