MAHALO TO OUR CAROLERS!!!
The halls of Mahelona were filled with cheer and music as over 30 All Saints' members gathered together to sing Christmas Carols for the long-term patients this past Sunday, December 16.  Decorated bottles of lotion were also passed out as they made their way through the corridors. Many thanks to Choir Director, Curtis Shiramizu and Mason Tabura for leading the charge with instruments and music, to the youth group for prepping the bottles of lotion, and for everyone who came to help spread cheer and joy! Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
Search Update 

 2012 search comm

Please continue to keep the Search Committee in your prayers.  They are currently conducting extensive phone interviews with candidates.  We appreciate their commitment and dedication to this very important process.  We thank Rev. Mary for the Search Committee Prayer:

 

Almighty and everliving God, look favorably upon us, the people of All Saints', in this time of transition as we search for a new rector. 
  
We pray for the life of our parish, that we may continue to be guided by your love and strengthened in our mission to serve you through minitry, fellowship and worship. 
  
We pray for our search committee, Jan Hashizume, David Murray and Dianne Tabura, that their hearts may be open to what your spirit is saying. 
  
We pray for the priest whose name is known to you alone, that he or she be open to your call. 
  
Give us your grace to follow where you would lead us, and grant us your peace.  In Jesus' name we pray.  Amen.
