Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Fr. Ryan's First Sunday Service
ryan altar  
Sunday, June 23, 2013, was Fr. Ryan's first Sunday service with All Saints', that left second service members shouting its "triple Alleluia" with extra gusto and zeal! The service also included a welcome from the Sunday school children with homemade leis, the youth group's presentation of "swag", and a blessing/commissioning of our young missioners who were departing for O'ahu later that afternoon. After the second service, folks gathered on the lawn for a welcome potluck where lots of food and fellowship flowed! 

Welcome Fr. Ryan! We are so very blessed to have you with us, and look forward to a long and joyous ministry together! Hallelujah!

Rest in Peace, Mary Ann Punua
It is with deep sadness, that we announce the death of beloved member, Mary Ann Ku'uleialoha Punua, who passed away on Sunday June 23. "Aunty Ku'ulei" was known throughout the island as a Kumu Hula and professional dancer, and her legacy continues through her children and the many generations of students that danced under her tutelage. Church members remember with great fondness, of her choreographing the angels in the Christmas pageant from years long past. 

Please keep her family in your prayers during this difficult time, especially her husband Victor, Sr., and her children Victor, John, Wallis, Edward, Kuulei, and their families.

A Celebration of Life will be held at All Saints' on Saturday, July 20, 2013. Visitation begins at 9:00 am followed by the service at 11:00 am. A memorial gathering and reception will follow on the lawn.
Now What!
Keeping up with Fr. Ryan...
After 15 looong months, we finally have a priest on board!  Now what?! Well, our new shepherd is a hip and energetic priest who is totally tuned into the world wide web and all the hi-tech gadgets that accompany it... which means that a few of us that have been resisting entry into the "www" may have to take the plunge into that scary world of internet savvy--- e-mail, blogs, Twitter, Instagram and heaven forbid, Facebook! OMG!!! 
Yes, Fr. Ryan already has already set up two new sites on the internet for folks to view his sermons, thoughts and reflections.  He invites everyone to visit these sites regularly to get a dose of spiritual food and insight. They are:
Now What: A weekly blog series published every Monday by Rev. Ryan. "Now What" seeks to bring the Gospel into our lives beyond Sunday, through offering a brief reflection upon the past Sunday's Gospel reading. Sermon texts will also be available on this blog site.
Preaching from Paradise: Features the sermons preached by The Rev. Ryan D. Newman and others at All Saints' Episcopal Church and is now available on iTunes. Listeners can "subscribe" to the podcast and it will automatically download the newest sermon. It is a wonderful way for people in our extended 'ohana to connect weekly with All Saints'. 
Links to both of these can currently be found on the All Saints' website under the Rector's Corner.
Coming Soon!

Proper 8
Almighty God, you have built your Church upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone: Grant us so to be joined together in unity of spirit by their teaching, that we may be made a holy temple acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
