NOTICE: I am a practicing Catholic, active and in good-standing with my local diocese, who professes faith and loyalty to the Church. This ministry - my "little work" - is strictly a personal expression of that faith and loyalty, and not an officially recognized ministry in the Diocese of Honolulu.

Guadalupe House Speaking Presentations

A speaking presentation at St. George
Church, Waimanalo (01/2010)

This ministry conducts speaking presentations aimed at spreading devotion to Our Lady, the Saints, and their respective Holy Relics.  These presentations are ideal for parish groups/associations, for youth groups (ages 14+), and for RCIA and Confirmation-related classes.  Information concerning these presentations are detailed below:


  • To share the biblical and historical background on the Catholic Church’s teachings about the concept of Sainthood and the veneration of Holy Relics
  • To share the steps involved in the Canonization Process, that the Church strictly follows in recognizing its Saints
  • To share the inspirational lives of several Saints and other Catholic spiritual role-models with an emphasis on the lives of modern Saints and candidates for Sainthood
  • To share several authentic Holy Relics for the public veneration of the Faithful, so as to encourage devotion to the Saints and Blesseds, and their hallowed remains
