Mahalo Clergy!
We are so blessed and grateful to the many supply clergy that have been filling in while we await a permanent priest.

Thank you to Fr. John Connell for another wonderful sermon this past Sunday. Fr. Connell will be with us again this Sunday, October 28, and a few hours later, Rev. Mary Tudela arrives on Kaua'i. Rev. Mary will be leading Sunday services beginning on November 4, until (hopefully) a new rector is in place. A short bio about her appeared in a recent E-News that can be read HERE. Hale Lani currently has a couple copies of her book, Walking in My FaithAloha and welcome Rev. Mary!
*Note of Caution:  If anyone was planning to cook something for Rev. Mary, please be aware that she is allergic to many foods and food products.  Please contact Chris in the office to get a copy of this extensive list.


Senior Warden Galen Nakamura has advised that Canon Liz Beasley from the Bishop's Office has forwarded three potential candidates for our consideration. Junior Warden David Murray and Vestry members Dianne Tabura and Jan Hashizume have been asked to review the candidates whose names are being kept confidential. Galen asks "for your prayerful support of Dave, Dianne and Jan as they go about their work" and thanks them for "undertaking this critically important task."

2013 Fall Stewardship Campaign: Growing Our Faith

Jan HashizumeAloha! 
Last  Sunday marked the start of our 2013 Stewardship Campaign and all of our visitors were blessed and commissioned!  Our Stewardship Campaign is a time to reach out and to reconnect to everyone in our congregation.  It is a time to ask, how you are doing?  How is the Church going for you?  It is also a time to ask everyone to prayerfully reflect on your time, talents and treasure.  And during the next few weeks we are asking that you prayerfully reflect on your giving and complete and return your pledge card.
We know that we can count on you to be gracious and open to our home visitors.  It will be a great learning experience for all of us.
The real treasure at All Saints' is what we already have --each other.  Let's join each other on this journey of "Growing Our Faith".
Blessings, peace and joy,
Stewardship Ministry & Visitors

Blessed to be a Blessing Continues
Everyone invited!  Sundays after the second service  
stewardship water dropThis week marks the fourth gathering of Blessed to be a Blessing, and anyone can come and join in any session.  It's a great time for sharing, reflection and growth that features a short writing from leaders  across the Episcopal Church each week.  Put together by the Episcopal Church, this 6-week series explores stewardship as a response to that week's lectionary reading from the Gospel of Mark. The gatherings take place after Sunday refreshments in Memorial Hall.  For more info, see Jan Hashizume or email her.

norfolk Christmas Tree Heads Up!
This year All Saints' is looking to light up a Norfolk pine tree that will return to its place outside of the church.  If anyone would like to donate one (before December 1), please let Chris Wataya know.  The green part of the tree should be approximately 6' - 7' tall.  Live trees are welcome.  If you are cutting one, the bare trunk will need to be long enough to be buried sturdily into the ground.  Mahalo!
