FAQs     Past Recipients

“As Hawaii is the most distant U.S. state, it is often expensive, time consuming and difficult to get speakers and musicians to visit. We used our OCP scholarship to host Fr. Ricky Manalo in 2019 — and what a success he was! Many of our parishioners are Asian and Filipino, and we love Fr. Ricky’s music…People came from many parishes on Oahu. We had over 450 people attend, and all were just amazed at his spirituality, humility, knowledge and talent. We augmented our OCP grant with “free will” offerings and were able to bring Fr. Ricky back in February 2020…Thank you, OCP, for providing a grant, wonderful speakers and spirit-enlivening resources!”

—St. John Apostle and Evangelist Church in Mililani, HI

“On behalf of our Pastor, Father Woodrow Pace, and the parish community of Saints Peter and Paul Parish, please accept our heartfelt gratitude for the OCP Parish Grant…to rebuild our choir’s music library. We are grateful for the work of composers and publishers as we strive to provide music that is liturgical, pastoral and beautiful, beginning with a composer’s creativity to the voices of the assembly, uplifted in prayer. Thank you for your support of our efforts to engage, unite and inspire.”

—Janice A. Dworschak, Coordinator of Liturgical Music, Saints Peter and Paul Parish of Independence, WI
