Recovery efforts continue following the catastrophic wildfires that burned the historic town of Lahaina on the island of Maui. Pope Francis sent a papal message to Bishop Larry Silva of the Diocese of Honolulu expressing his closeness and solidarity with all those affected. Bishop Silva shared his thoughts and how to help those in need on Maui in a letter on August 11, 2023. You can also read and reflect on his homily delivered on August 13th in Kapalua, Maui, after visiting Lahaina.
