 Kailua Parish Holds Its Annual Breakfast With The Bishop
 St. John Vianney parish in Kailua hosted its school’s 11th annual Breakfast with the Bishop on Jan. 16, with the Rev. Larry Silva, bishop of Honolulu.
   A buffet was served in the parish hall at 920 Keolu Drive. The meal was pre- pared by the school’s profes- sional chefs, and served by the school’s teachers and par- ents to over 275 guests spread over the three servings. All diners were asked to provide proof of vaccination or a neg- ative COVID-19 test within the last 48 hours and required to wear face coverings. All seating in the hall was at a safe distance and additional seating was available outside.
attending were 2021 Miss Hawai‘i Courtney Choy, comedian Frank De Lima, Magnum P. I. actress Amy Hill, Diamond Head Theatre actress Lisa Konove and Miss Hawai‘i Elementary America 2022 Siena-Grace Tufaga.
      Silva spoke on the chal- lenges that Catholic schools have been facing in recent years and commended the school’s ability to not only survive the pandemic but, thanks to all its supporters, actually thrive. Llewellyn Young, Hawai‘i Catholic Schools superintendent, re- marked that all of the Catho- lic schools were able to con- duct in person teaching from July 2020 through today.
Entertainment was per- formed by the school’s hula hālau, under the direction of Jack McKeaque, and young musicians, under the lead- ership of Sarah Young. The $40,000-plus funds raised from the event will go to sup- port the school’s tuition assis- tance programs.
