From the Coordinator:
"A New Year, A New Opportunity"

Welcome to a new year!  I know it's already February and I sort of missed a January newsletter.  But we are still in a relatively new year, and I like to think of every new year as a new opportunity.

This year, EPIC Ministry is gearing up for a lot of new events, speakers, activities, etc.  We definitely had a full schedule last year, and it doesn't seem like we're planning to slow down anytime soon.  After all, if the Spirit is moving, we need to be on that train.

So I'd like to offer you an invitation and challenge.  If you are reading this and have never been to one of our EPIC Faith Sharings or if you haven't come in a while, this is an invitation to join us.  This is a challenge to be a part of this growing ministry.

There's so many reasons not to come.  If you think we don't need you, you are far from the truth.  If you think you're too old, you're wrong...we need your support and experience.  If you think you're too busy, we all are, but I guarantee that this is worth your time.  If you think that you're just not in the "right place in life" to be active in ministry, just remember that God constantly calls us back to Him no matter where we are in life...maybe this is your opportunity.

We are E.P.I.C. Ministry, a ministry dedicated to serving the young adult community in our parish and beyond.  We need you to help make this ministry successful.  Please take this challenge and opportunity to make one of your resolutions this year to join us and help us to be a ministry "ever present in Christ".
EPIC Ministry has had a busy, but fruitful year so far.  CLICK HERE to take a look at a month-to-month recap of the many events and activities we have held and participated in.
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS WITH OUR PRIESTS
It's been one year since both Fr. Richard McNally, SS.CC., our pastor, and Fr. Yohanes "Yanto" Budiyanto, SS.CC., our parochial vicar, have taken the reigns as our parish priests.

Read these two exclusive interviews with each of our priests after being at Our Lady of Sorrows for a year:
Come hear an inspiring testimony by Rhea Quemado, an awesome young adult from Resurrection of the Lord (Waipio) on Monday, February 3, at 7:00 PM.
Ed & Christy Keaunui will be returning once again to lead another financial Life Skills session on Monday, February 17, at 7:00 PM.  You won't want to miss it!
Young adult speaker, Amber Alvarez, a college ambassador for the Catholic Relief Services, will be sharing about her ministry and the Church's response to those impacted by disasters around the world at our monthly community night at Resurrection of the Lord on Monday, February 24, at 7:00 PM.
EPIC Ministry members only pay $20 for this retreat!
