Liz 2012Mahalo to Canon Liz for coming to answer our questions about Aided Parishes this past Thursday evening.  There was a great turn out of church members who were eager to learn more about the options that lay ahead for All Saints', and to help shed light on what these options entail.  With an overwhelming response to remain a parish and avoid becoming a mission, Vestry members Dianne Tabura and Jan Hashizume shared how there will be renewed efforts to expand on stewardship, including an upcoming training on September 29 (see article below).  The meeting was viedeotaped and the contents will be made available to members in written form.
Our Wonderful Supply Clergy 

Gaylord HitchcockWe are so grateful to all the clergy that have been coming to All Saints' while we are without a permanent rector.  Thank you to Rev. Gaylord Hitchcock for not only leading our services but for also taking part in the Bible Study between services this past Sunday.  All Saints' is definitely in good hands with the many wonderful clergy filling in. 

Clergy for upcoming Sundays are as follows:

September 16 - Rev. Gaylord Hitchcock
September 23 - Bishop Bob Fitzpatrick *
September 30 - Fr. Bob Walden *
October 7 - Rev. Dan Leatherman
*Corrected dates

We give thanks and praise for these clergy who fly over to spend their Sundays with our All Saints' ohana, and look forward to welcoming them!
The Sesquicentennial Celebration on Kaua'i

Premiere Showing of Sesquicentennial Film at All Saints'
Not only will we "Boogie with the Bishop" at the island-wide Sesquicentennial Celebration on September 22, but the All Saints' Gym will also be the site for the premiere showing of the documentary film, Grace and Beauty: 150 Years of the Episcopal Church in Hawai'i.  The film was created especially for the Sesquicentennial by EMMY Award winning filmmaker Stephanie Castillo, a member of St. Michael and All Angels'.  This 40-minute documentary tells the story of the vision of King Kamehameha IV & Queen Emma to establish a church for the people that honored Jesus Christ, and a spiritual community that respected their Hawaiian culture.
The event begins at 7:00 pm, with live music by Vic and the Victimz and Mark Oyama's Contemporary Flavors providing the food. There will also be a variety of activities and lots of fellowship in store! For more information on the Sesquicentennial, visit the Dicoesan website HERE.
For those who do not drive at night, transportation will be available!  Please use the sign-in sheet at the entrance of the church, and also RSVP for the food count.
Lots of help will be needed for set-up on Friday, September 21, at 5:00 pm, and on Saturday morning from 9:00 am to help decorate.  We will also need help with food and drinks during the party.  For questions and to help volunteer, please see Mary Margaret Smith, Janet Wilson or Jean Nakamoto.

Stewardship Training & Dinner, September 29

Mark your calendars & be sure to attend 

There will be a stewardship dinner and training session for all church members on Saturday, September 29, 2012, at 5:00 pm, in the Sloggett Hall.  The training session will be led by Rev. Maurice "Rusty" Goldsmith, who is currently on sabbatical on Kaua'i.  Rev. Rusty is an Episcopal priest with over 30 years of experience specializing in the theology of stewardship.


Rev. Rusty will explain how stewardship is not about fundraising, but about living from a perspective of faithful generoisty and about how central it is to our identity and life as Christians.  This meeting is part of a renewed effort at All Saints' to focus on stewardship education and programs that have been neglected over the past years.  For more information, contact the church office at 822-4267.
