Ukrainian Greek Catholic Mission in Hawaii

Some days ago, I complained (with my limited knowledge) of the lack of reverent masses in my neighborhood. Not long afterward, I found out about an Eastern Divine Liturgy in East Honolulu at St. Sophia Ukrainian Greek Catholic Mission. Located in a tiny chapel in a parochial school, only about twenty people came. It was my first time experiencing an Eastern rite Divine Liturgy. It was truly a beautiful experience.

So, if any of you is visiting Hawaii or already have the grace :smiley: of living here, I suggest you experience Divine Liturgy at the Mission. Here is their site, which has the address and schedule.

I am happy for you. I have heard the Divine Liturgies are beautiful. Maybe some day --I will get to experience one.

I love Ukranian DL. I attend at least once a month.

More Catholics should go, perhaps this would inspire more reverent NO masses.

DL and the TLM compliment each other IMHO. :thumbsup:

Here’s my good buddy Patriarch Alexi doing something really cool with some candles !!!:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Thank you.

A bit of appropriate respect would go a long way. His Beatitude Patriarch Alexiy is conferring a hierarchal blessing with the trikiri and dikiri, respectively candleabra containing three and two-candles - which symbolize the Three Persons and Two Natures of God.

Check locations and times before relying on the Unofficial Directory to which Billy linked. Once a wonderful resource for we of the East, it has not been updated in a decade and can only be relied on as a starting point - hopefully, a project now underway will result in a replacement for it.

Have they resumed services? I wanted to go but the last time I checked they hadn’t had a priest in years.

Is it hard to find? I don’t know my way around Waianae.
