Fr Damien 
Father Damien vs. Frances Perkins
Lent madness 
With Bishop Bob on sabbatical, will Hawai'i rally around Father Damien this year? The Lent Madness world is surely waiting to see, especially after the exciting showing of Queen Emma last year! Now in its third week of the season, Lent Madness continues to draw more and more interest with record breaking participation!  
For those that are unfamiliar with Lent Madness, it's a wonderful way to learn about the different saints on our calendar, and put a little fun into a somber Lenten discipline. Learn more on their website HERE and while you're at it, be sure to vote for Fr. DamienRemember, you can only vote ONCE.

Photos Needed! Take a picture of our Easter Cross!
If you've got a camera (phones count) WE WANT YOU!
wood crossThis year's art project for the Church's Easter unveiling is underway, and we are seeking folks to participate in a fun and creative endeavor. When Chris Wataya asked if the youth had any ideas for this year's task, Ke Akua Youth Group member Alanna Bauman came up with a great concept utilizing the familiar wood cross that her dad (Steve Bauman) built for our Easter services. The cross will be the main subject, and anyone with a camera is asked to take a picture of the cross somewhere special to them -- whether on property or at a favorite beach -- in their backyard or in the mountains. Feel free to Photoshop or embellish your photo, or leave it as is, then e-mail it to halelani@hawaiiantel.net. For best results, the higher the resolution the better. Deadline for submission is Sunday, March 17, 2013. To arrange a time to borrow the cross, please call Sybil at 651-7773, or e-mail her at the halelani address above.

Continuing Confirmation/Lenten Classes 
Wednesdays at 5:45 pm 

Tudela 2Rev. Mary continues to lead Confirmation/Lenten classes through March.  It is a great opportunity for all church members to take part in Christian education. Although the classes are designed to prepare candidates for confirmation, the material is of interest to everyone, and especially for those who may need a "refresher". Who are We? What does church membership mean? Why live a life of faith? These are just a few of the topics being covered. 


The classes are held in the rectory living room from 5:45 - 7:30 p.m., on Wednesdays. Candidates for confirmation must attend all classes. All other members or interested persons can attend any or all of the classes.  For more information and to view the schedule of topics, go the "Our Ministries" tab on the church website and click on "Christian Formation", or click HERE to go directly to the webpage now. For more information on being Baptized, Confirmed or Reaffirmed, please contact Rev. Mary at 634-9343, or e-mail her.

We give thanks to all of our members that supported the food booth at the craft fair in December to help raise funds for this event! 
This week, we give special thanks to Rev. Ryan and Dr. Erin for their generous online donation!!!
The KeAkua Youth Group and ECW have teamed up to raise funds for the American Cancer Society's annual Relay for Life event taking place on April 27 & 28, at Hanapepe Stadium. You can help support their efforts in several ways:

+ Purchase a luminaria bag that participants will be selling during the month of March. (These bags are purchased in memory of a loved one who has died of cancer or is battling cancer and is lit during a special ceremony on the night of the walk.)
+ Come out on the night of the walk and cheer our walkers on or join in the walk yourself!  Lots of food and fellowship will be going on in the All Saints' Angels tent!

Third Sunday in Lent
Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities whjich may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
