VENUE: Catholic Charities Hawaii
The Conference will once again be held on the beautiful slopes of Makiki at Catholic Charities Hawaii at 1822 Ke’eaumoku Street in Honolulu (corner of Ke’eaumoku and Nehoa). The Clarence T. C. Ching Community Hall accommodates 250 people and is handicapped accessible. The hall has great air conditioning so wear warm clothing if you tend to get cold.
The Daughters of St. Paul, a leading Catholic store for books, music, movies, apps, and religious gifts, will be on hand on Friday and Saturday to offer media resources that you can trust to be authentically rooted in Catholic Identity.
Our own Book Ministry will be offering books about the Charismatic Renewal from Chariscenter USA (National Service Committee) and Renewal Ministries. We will also be distributing Conference Shirts (Tees and Polos)
Though food-service is not available at the conference site, many restaurants and cafes are located just 7-8 blocks south. A Potluck Fellowship, in the plaza area between the conference hall and the administration building, is where most Conference participants congregate.
A suggested early bird donation of $40 (postmarked before June 15, 2017) or on-site donation of: $50 for general; $20 for students, will help HCCRS partially cover conference expenses. Clergy and Religious are free.
Seating is limited so register today.
