A Message from Fr. Ryan:

Aloha All Saints' Community,


Mahalo to our 'Ohana for your loving and generous support of the All Saints' "Sharing Our Joy" Ingathering. We were deeply blessed by your 2014 pledges and "Joy Offerings." The potluck and fellowship that followed the 9:30 am service was spectacular! Both All Saints' Day services were a wonderful celebration of our Church 'Ohana and God's continued glory in our lives and the community.


If you have not had an opportunity to share your 2014 pledge card and/or "Joy Offering", please either return them to the Church office or simply place them with the Sunday offertory. 


We do hope all of our 'Ohana will participate in the joyous and faithful endeavor of pledging for 2014. If you have any questions or would welcome a visit from Fr. Ryan and/or Bill Caldwell (Stewardship Chair), please contact the Church Office at 822-4267.


Mahalo nui loa,

Rain and winds didn't stop members from enjoying the ono dishes served up at Sunday's potluck following the 9:30 Ingathering service... the event was moved into the gym! Victor Punua, Jr. whipped up hot fresh noodles and folks couldn't wait to dig in!

On the morning of November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the central Philippines, causing widespread damage, devastation and death. Episcopal Relief & Development's local partner, the Episcopal Church in the Philippines, is assessing needs and determining how best to respond. Your donation to the Philippines Fund will enable Episcopal Relief & Development to support the Episcopal Church in the Philippines as they respond to Super Typhoon Haiyan. To donate to their efforts, visit their link HERE

Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick has also been in communication with The Most Reverend Ephraim Fajutagana in the Philippines, and you can read his latest messages of support and prayer on the Diocesan website HERE.

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy spirit, one God for ever and ever.

We will spend the weekend talking about our lives, about God, and about the struggles of being a middle-schooler in today's society.  We will worship together, explore our faith through art, and build a foundation for a strong relationship with each other and God.

Cost for this event is $50 for the entire weekend, and travel scholarships are available for Neighbor Island youth. Space is limited to 30 participants!
