Father Paulo Kosaka, ministering at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Waikane, Hawaii, returned to Guam to preside at the funeral liturgy of his beloved mother, Cecilia Hara Kosaka.

Manuel Kosaka and his wife Cecilia

Cecilia lived a long and fulfilling life, raising many children with her late husband, Manuel Borja Kosaka, who died many years earlier.  Besides seeing their son Paulo became a Capuchin priest, Manuel was cook at the friary for many years and was a treasured member of our extended Capuchin family.  Both Manuel and Cecilia was models of humility and hard work.
