Description

Inaugural Damien and Marianne Catholic Conference in Honolulu Set for October 20–22, 2017

By Nathan Hokama




An exciting convergence of education and entertainment awaits Christians of all denominations and ages at the inaugural Damien and Marianne Catholic Conference at the Hawai‘i Convention Center from October 20 to 22, 2017.

The conference is fully endorsed and approved by Bishop Clarence (Larry) Silva, who serves as President of the Saint Damien and Saint Marianne Commission. The conference is sponsored in part by the With Grateful Hearts Campaign.

“We want to honor the lives of Hawai‘i’s two saints in exciting, new ways and help others see the positive impact we can have in our parishes, congregations, and communities across the state,” said Makana Aiona, President of the Damien and Marianne Catholic Conference, a nonprofit organization established in 2016.

“Our goal is to educate, inspire, and empower leaders in our community, now and for the next generation,” added Aiona, who previously served as Coordinator of Young Adult Ministry for the Diocese of Honolulu, and is now a teacher at Damien School. “We want to create lasting, life-changing experiences so that at the conclusion of the three-day conference, every participant will leave refreshed, renewed, and reenergized for service. We see this becoming an annual event that will attract those from outside Hawai‘i and provide educational opportunities for the people of Hawaii who may not be able to travel to similar regional or national conferences on the mainland.”

The conference will include informative sessions on leadership development, faith formation, spirituality, youth and young adult programs, and social services, led by local, national, and international speakers.
