Talk Story Columns

Herald Logo

“Talk Story” is a common phrased used in Hawaii when people come together to share thoughts, ideas, laughter and even food. As we visit parish communities around the islands, we hear so many beautiful stories of ordinary folks doing extraordinary things for the most needy of our Hawaii. These columns and accompanying videos represent how our local communities are living their faith in Witness to Jesus, by encountering the vulnerable among us. Mahalo to all our volunteers — and Mahalo to the Hawaii Catholic Herald for helping us “Talk Story” with you!
