“THE GIFT”: True Love Waits
Treasure our God-given gift by living a life of purity and chastity in every relationship that we have.
Chastity Retreat for High School Youth grades 9-12
They were challenged to realize that, although the world may say that it is best to feed our hunger for relationships with sexual relationships and experiences, ultimately this hurts us spiritually, emotionally, and even physically. We introduced the virtue of chastity, which is the integration of our sexuality into our spirit and body, allowing the spirit to control our body and desires. Each parish had a special blessing over their youth participants where they will also received promise rings. Speakers: Deacon Tom Miyashiro, Sr. Celeste Cabral (Sr. Cece), Leilani Taguba, Lisa Gomes, Kainoa Fukumoto, Laurie Munoz, James Andrade, Nellani Tabada, Tiffany Cezar, and OLGC A.R.M.S. Ministry Team.
