Aloha All Saints',

Erin and I would like to offer our deepest gratitude for the wonderful welcomes and sincere generosity we have received since moving to Kauai. Last week's installation service was a wonderful celebration for our whole Church 'Ohana--it was a profoundly moving and humbling service. Since arriving last month, our family has been embraced by the "Aloha Spirit" of All Saints'. We look forward to many, many years as members of the All Saints' 'Ohana. Mahalo nui loa.

A Sunday to Remember...

As far as timing goes, we were blessed that the Bishop's scheduled Visitation was also an appropriate time for an Installation! And so the All Saints' 'ohana came together during the 9:30 service on Sunday, July 14, 2013, for a Celebration of New Ministry, as the Rev. Ryan D. Newman was officially installed as the new Rector of All Saints' Church! 

Although Sunday mornings would normally present a challenge for supporting clergy to attend, we were blessed yet again with the attendance of dear and familiar faces. The Rev. Mary Tudela, who had been with us for the past 8 months prior to Fr. Ryan's arrival, was the representative clergy who read the Gospel and presented the Canons. The Revs. Ann Dittmar-McCollim and Keith McCollim from Australia, who spent several months with us nearly 6 years ago, were vested and on hand to help with the ceremony. The Rev. David Pittman, who had been supply for West Kaua'i, was also in attendance. 

The service also included presentations from church members representing the different ministry areas of the church. Symbolic items and special gifts were presented from the Wardens, Vestry, ECW, LEMs, healing ministry, administration, worship team, music team, Family Ministries and preschool. 

Fr. Ryan's friends and family from California joined him on this special day to celebrate a wonderful new chapter in his life. It was a gorgeous day, with a beautiful ceremony, and an awesome potluck... praise God for bringing us all together as we continue our journey on the road to His glory! Alleluia, Alleluia, ALLELUIA!!!

(Be on the lookout for a short video on Fr. Ryan's arrival and Installation Service coming soon on the church website under the SPOTLIGHT tab.) 
Rest In Peace Ruth McClung
Ruth McClungWe are saddened to learn about the death of Ruth Halstead McClung, who passed away on Saturday, June 1, 2013, surrounded by family in West Virginia. Although a relative newcomer to Kaua'i and All Saints', Ruth found friendship with a number of members, and returned to West Virginia just a few months ago to be near family. A Celebration of Life was held at Mountain View Church of God in West Virginia, on June 6. If you would like the address of Ruth's family to send condolences, please e-mail the church office.
Smooth Driving ~ Mahalo Brandon!
Brandon driveway
Have you noticed your drive into the church is a lot smoother? Then please be sure to give HUGE thanks to Brandon Williams, who donated all of his time and muscle power to tackle the job of smoothing out the church driveway. Tree roots had turned the driveway into an obstacle course of sorts, dangerously lifting and cracking the concrete. Amazingly, Brandon was able to do all of this in his spare time during the week before Fr. Ryan's Installation. The mammoth task of breaking up three large areas were done all by himself, and with only a handful of help, carted away tons of debris, and poured the new concrete. MAHALO BRANDON, for all of your hard work and dedication to the church!

Proper 11
Almighty God, the foundation of all wisdom, you know our necessities before we ask and our ignorance in asking: Have compassion on our weakness, and mercifully give us those things which for our unworthiness we dare not, and for our blindness we cannot ask; through the worthiness of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
