It's here!!!  Kaua'i's Sesquicentennial Celebration takes place this Saturday, September 22, beginning at 7:00 pm in the gym!  Live music, food, activities and the premiere showing of the Sesquicentennial video documentary, Grace and Beauty : 150 Years of the Episcopal Church in Hawai'i.  Don't miss out on this exciting event that brings members from all the Episcopal churches on the island together for a night of dancing, feasting and fellowship!
Lots of hands will be needed to set up for this important event.  Help with tent set-up is needed today, Friday, at 5:00 pm, and on Saturday morning from 9:00 am to help decorate.  We will also need help during the event with the food and drinks.  If you have questions or would like to help, please see Mary Margaret Smith, Janet Wilson or Jean Nakamoto.  Most of all, be sure to turn out for this historic time in the life of the Episcopal Church and Kaua'i!

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.

Jan HashizumeAloha,


On September 13th, Canon Liz met with the congregation to discuss and answer questions regarding the aided parish suggestion.  A straw poll was taken.  The question asked was, knowing that it's going to take hard work to remain a parish, how many of you would choose to remain a parish?  Almost all the attendees raised their hands.  Then a question came up that I would like to address.  


What percentage do people have to increase their pledge to meet our goal or remaining a parish?  Is it 5% or 10%?

Grant us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things, but to love things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among things that are passing away, to hold fast to those that shall endure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
