Aloha and Welcome to Sacred Heart Church Pahoa

“Cor ad cor” ... Heart to heart!







                                                               Meet Father John Molina  

Catechetical Sunday (September 15, 2019) honors and commissions the parish and school catechists who to teach and pass on the Catholic faith each year. Those who the community has designated to serve as catechists will be called forth to be commissioned for their ministry. This year’s theme reflects on the disciples on the road to Emmaus, who asked Jesus to stay longer with them. Learn more about this special day.


From the Office of the Bishop

Parishes and schools sometimes receive threatening scam emails like the one below:

"Hi, I am a content writer and I need you to order some of my services from here (scam link). Please note, if you do not want to order, I will create a tonne of spam backlinks to your website to bring it down on Google. Trust me guys, it is better to cooperate with me than mess around. I am giving you 2 days to order my services or otherwise, you will experience the consequences."

Hallmark signs of phishing and scam emails often include bad grammar, bad spelling, threats to do damage, and a short deadline to pay money with a link.

DO NOT reply to the email, ignore and delete it.

Daily Mass Readings and Reflections



Parish & Diocesan Giving

For most Catholics, opportunities for giving begin in their parish and diocese.  Diocesan and parish stewardship programs should help individuals, families and  communities better understand why, in the context of a total commitment to stewardship that is planned, proportionate, and sacrificial, it is important to set goals for giving.  All Christian stewards must consider prayerfully the gifts they have received from God, and they should make a decision (in advance from the "first fruits" instead of what is left over after obligations have been met) about what will be given. Many parishes now offer electronic funds transfer options for the weekly offertory in addition to the traditional envelope system to help families and individuals meet their stewardship commitments.
