Two of our youth group members and Kapa'a High School serniors, Shane Nishioka-Healy and Ty Shiramizu, were named to the All Tournament Team in the State Soccer Championships (Div II) this past week.  Being the underdogs, they fought a hard battle against defending champions Honoka'a, getting scored against only in the 72nd minute.  Despite coming in second, Shane was named All Tournament Team Goalie and Impact Player, and both boys shared Team Player Awards.

Ash Wednesday Services
Just a reminder that Ash Wednesday services will be taking place at 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent.
A message from our Junior Warden: 
Saturday , February 25 Work Day!!!
Please be sure to come by this Saturday, February 25, for a church work day, fun and fellowship (and donuts if we're lucky!).  Cleaning begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 12:00 p.m.
workdayThe church, Memorial Hall and possibly the gym kitchen will be used as medical facilities by Tropic Care between February 27 and March 10.  During the course of the two-week exercise, we may have as many as 100 military personnel on site and a lot of people will be coming to the church for medical, dental and vision services.  For many of them, this will be their first time at All Saints', and as the saying goes, you only have one chance to make a good first impression.  Let's make sure that everyone gets a "good first impression" of All Saints' Episcopal Church!
Work day schedule will include cleaning the church (especially the windows), Memorial Hall (including the bell tower), gym kitchen, church grounds (picking up litter), and watering and weeding the Peace Garden.
Look forward to seeing you on Saturday.  Mahalo for your help!  David

ERD President, Dr. Robert Radtke to speak at All Saints' 
Radtke ERD presAll Saints' is honored to have Dr. Robert Radtke, President of the Episcopal Relief & Development Organization (ERD), speak with us on Sunday, February 26, beginning at 5:30 p.m.  Fittingly, this Sunday is also  Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday.  At the 2009 General Convention, Lent was designated as a time to remember and support the organization's work worldwide, and many congregations around the Episcopal Church will commemorate ERD on the first Sunday in Lent.
"This special Sunday is an opportunity for congregations to connect to Episcopal Relieft & Development and its mission," said Robery Radtke.  "As a compassionate response of the Episcopal Church to suffering worldwide, the organization seeks to empower local communities to overcome poverty, hunger, disaster and disease, build up the Body of christ, and express Christian solidarity with out global brothers and sisters.  Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday is an occasion for all Episcopalians to consider how they can make a positive impact in the lives of others, through supporting life-giving programs and advocating for social justice within the Church."
During this Lenten season, ERD is placing a particular focus on malaria prevention and education through the NetsforLife program partnership.  Donations made in connection with ERD Sunday and the organization's Lenten resources will benefit this program.

Register now for Safeguarding God's Children Classes
Safeguarding logoFr. Ben and Rev. Robin Taylor from Christ Memorial will be conducting a Safeguarding God's Children Training Class on Saturday, March 3, at 9:00 a.m. at All Saint's Church. 
Safeguarding God's Children is required of all clergy, Vestry and Bishop's Committee members, and anyone (paid or volunteer) who works with children. This includes Sunday school teachers, youth group leaders, and preschool and school teachers. Anyone in church is encouraged to attend the workshop, to increase the awareness of how to watch for warning signs of child abuse.
The Diocese uses the curriculum put together by the Church Pension Fund that describes the program as follows:  "Safeguarding God's Children provides participants with the information they need to protect the children they know and care for in their personal lives and the ministries in which they serve. The program is based on the philosophy that if every adult can protect just one child, they will forever change one life. If we can all change one life, together we will make a difference in this generation of children."


For those that have already received training, annual "refresher" courses are now required that can be done on-line.

Ash Wednesday
Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou has made and dost forgive the sins of all those who are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Discernment Day 2012 
The Commission on Ministry will sponsor a Discernment Day for the Diocese on Saturday, March 10, 2012.  It will be held at St. Peter's Episcopal Church (behind the Cathedral) from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Discernment Day is a workshop designed for church groups ("congregational discernment committees") who help an individual or one another with answering questions of who God has made them to be and how God calls them to serve. Meeting with a discernment committee is the first step in the ordination process, but discernment committees can be helpful for many people - not just those called to ordination.  For more information and/or to register, click HERE.
