 Holy Week & Easter Services and Celebrations 
Alleluia!!! Huge Mahalos to Rev. Mary for a wonderful week of worship and celebration during the most holiest time of the year!  Holy Week began with Palm Sunday and the triumphant waving of palms through the church property, followed by the Triduum, three days of solemn worship and prayer, recalling Christ's passion, death and resurrection. 
The Triduum began on Maundy Thursday, service with foot washing and stripping of the altar, and continued through Good Friday with the Stations of the Cross, led by the youth, and a noon-day liturgy. The Triduum ended with the Easter Vigil service held Saturday evening, and is the first service of Easter celebrating our risen Lord.  Rev. Mary's homilies were designed to tie all three days together, as it is considered one continuous worship. A reception was held after the Vigil with ono pupus and refreshments. 
2013 Triduum
Ah yes, folks may have been a little confused about what this Saturday evening service was about, and although this is one of the most important services in many churches, this was a first for All Saints'!  Those who attended were in for a big treat and a glorious new experience!
2013 vigil
Rev. Mary's son, Nicholas, who was visiting during this time, was instrumental in teaching Junior Warden David Murray, how to use a thurible for this special service. The thurible, which is used to carry incense, belonged to a beloved priest, the late Fr. Malcolm Miner, and was on loan from St. Michael's. With college kids back in town for Spring Break, the father/son team of Curtis and Ty Shiramizu sang for the congregation.
2013 Daileen Baptism
The service began outside in darkness with a fire going that would light the Paschal candle. Everyone was given a candle that was lit by the Paschal candle, and during the service, 11-year old Daileen Barton, daughter of Kathleen Ibanez and David Barton, was baptized in candlelight. 
2013 hunt
Despite a gloomy week of rain and winds, Easter Sunday was a glorious day as folks packed the pews for the single morning service. The cross pictures taken by members were on display and the Easter festival followed with tons of fun, food, fellowship, games and of course, egg hunts for keiki and kupunas!
