 Mahalo Rev. Robin Taylor & Rev. Mary Tudela
Robin Taylor  Tudela
All Saints' has been very blessed to have had such wonderful clergy filling in while we are without a permanent rector.  Due to unanticipated personal matters, Rev. Robin Taylor will be ending her role as interim assigned priest effective mid-January.  We are so grateful to Rev. Robin for leading our Wednesday healing services and for the pastoral care she has provided over the past several months.  Senior Warden Galen Nakamura is currently discussing with Rev. Mary Tudela about the possibility of her taking Robin's place on a temporary basis.  In the meantime, Rev. Mary will continue as our Sunday supply clergy, and Rev. Robin will continue to be the contact for all other priestly duties for the next few days. We will keep you updated.

Please continue to keep the Search Committee and also our Vestry in your prayers.  We appreciate their commitment and dedication to this very important process.  We thank Rev. Mary for the Search Committee Prayer which has been slightly modified to now include the Vestry:


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 ministry, fellowship and worship. 
We pray for our search committee, Jan Hashizume, David Murray and Dianne Tabura, and our Vestry, 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.
