SacramentsThe Diocese of Honolulu YouTube page offers a great video series on sacraments. The One 'Ohana Series filmed in Hawaii presents a beautiful sense of Catholic family.' "Part of Hawaiian culture, Ohana, means family (in an extended sense of the term, including blood-related, adoptive or intentional). The concept emphasizes that families are bound together and members must cooperate and remember one another.” (Wikipedia)
