God: St. Michael Volunteer Shanita Akana Sings From Her Soul
by Stephanie Maune (Volunteer for St. Michael Center during her short visit to Hawaii from Missouri)
On Thursday, June 7, I arrived in Hawaii to visit one of my best friends, Mary Klipp, who works for the St. Michael Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. During the next two weeks, I became very familiar with the work St. Michael Center does for Catholics in Hawaii and around the world. The Center has a computer club at St. Augustine Parish, one of the oldest churches in Waikiki.
The club helps youth, adults, and visitors by helping them to learn how to use this wonderful technology, and how it can be helpful to their lives. St. Michael Center is trying to bring more of these computer clubs to other churches around the islands. St. Michael's also invites people to send in their prayer requests both at special prayer events around the state and through their website www.smcenter.org. These prayer requests are remembered each week by the St. Michael volunteers at a weekly Mass and prayer group at Blessed Sacrament Parish in Honolulu.
The Center also has a Catholic bookstore to offer people learning materials to enhance their faith. St. Michael's is a great organization that seeks to bring Catholic people and organizations together from around the world and to inform Catholics about the Church. In my opinion, St. Michael Center is doing a wonderful job and with our help and support, imagine the leaps and bounds this organization can continue to do for the Catholic community.

PHOTO OF THE MONTH
of the Relics of the Passion
for Holy Relics)
Why did Jesus, the sinless one sent from the Father in heaven,
submit himself to John’s baptism? John preached a
baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins (Luke
3:3). In this humble submission we see a foreshadowing of
the “baptism” of Jesus bloody death upon the
cross. Jesus’ baptism is the acceptance and the beginning
of his mission as God’s suffering Servant (Isaiah
52:13-15; 53:1-12). He allowed himself to be numbered among
sinners. Jesus submitted himself entirely to his Father’s
will. Out of love he consented to this baptism of death
for the remission of our sins. Do you know the joy of trust
and submission to God?
