“Planting the Seeds that Nourish the Soul”  was the theme of this year’s Koloa Plantation Days Parade. This year’s parade honored St. Raphael Church as the Parade Grand Marshall as we celebrate our “175 Anniversary” on December 25, 2016. The float won "Best in Parade" award. Watch the video of the parade, to share in the experience of the day.  In addition, Millie Curtis and the rest of the performers, entertained the parade goers with their beautiful songs and music.

Sunday, September 11th - 175 Hours of Perpetual Adoration & Benediction Services

Sunday, September 18th “Could you not keep watch for just an hour?” Mark 14:37. As a gesture of the role Jesus plays in our very active everyday life, faithful will have an opportunity to devote an hour or more in adoration to the Lord. Adoration is a sign of devotion and worship of Jesus Christ who is believed by Catholics to be present in Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Eucharistic bread. Culminating with a total of 175 hours, we will begin our Adoration on Sunday, September 11 at 8:00 a.m. (immediately following our 7:00 a.m. mass and conclude on Sunday, September 18th at 3:00 p.m.). Individuals, families and friends are all welcome. Don’t you have just an hour to spend with Jesus?  Bring your bible or rosary; read silently; take this time to reflect. Sign-up sheets will be available on the bulletin board outside of the church.

Saturday, October 29th Youth Fall Dance (Chili & Rice)

We continued our celebration series with a Youth Fall Dance. Families and adults from our surrounding parishes joined us as we celebrated the youth of our parishes on Kauai. A fun evening was had by all.

Saturday, December 3rd 175th Anniversary Carnival and Celebration

10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The Celebration was a joyous event.  Thank you to the hundreds of people who came out to help us celebrate under a beautiful calm, sunny day.  Father Arlen's offering to St. Clair, the patron saint of weather proved to be highly successful.  While flood alerts were issued all around Kauai, we were blessed with a beautiful day.  Father's blessing of attendees was followed by a continuous stream of top notch entertainment.  The craft fair had over 30 crafters and the rummage sale had hundreds of items.  All were busy from the start.  We cannot forget the great food that was available for all to enjoy.  We thank the donors to our silent auction - it was a great success! It was great to see priests around the island and our invited dignitaries who helped us celebrate this historic event.  Many thanks to all the volunteers who put in tireless hours to make this event a great success.  A special thanks goes out to Brenda Sameshima and the celebration committee who organized a great event.
