Our choir met for practice a few times to rehearse the songs to be sung. One of those songs is Ave Maria by Shubert, my favorite song in honor of Mary our Mother.
My husband and I and our children will sing at the ordination Mass.
Afterwards, we will gather with John Cabico, Bishop Larry Silva, the priests and the rest of the congregation just outside of the church for some refreshments and entertainment, a typical ohana (family) tradition. Part of the entertainment will be a song to be presented by my children and a friend and altar server. Cy and Joseph will sing; Charity Therese will play the violin; Faithy will play the recorder.
Well, meet John Cabico, the once-seminarian and deacon of the Diocese of Honolulu. Pray for him.
Rejoice with us.
