If you are interested in becoming baptized or confirmed, or just learning more about it, please let Fr. Ryan know. Although baptisms can occur throughout the year (with Easter being a popular time), preparation for confirmation usually takes place over the course of several weeks leading up to the annual Regional Confirmation Ceremony with Bishop Fitzpatrick. This year's ceremony will be on Saturday, April 26. Reaffirmations and Receptions also occur at the Confirmation Ceremony.  For a quick rundown on what these different sacraments mean, visit the All Saints' website HERE.

Drop off your "treasures" beginning Sunday, February 16.
The Ke Akua Youth Group will be holding a rummage sale on Saturday, February 22, from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. They are fundraising for the triennial Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) and Urban Mission taking place this July in Philadelphia. The youth group is also planning to have a food booth with a bake sale. Proceeds from the bake sale will go towards the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, which they will be participating in along with the ECW in May. 
If you have some gently used items to donate, you can begin bringing them to the church on Sunday, February 16. We will store them in the nursery in Memorial Hall. For more information, e-mail Sybil.
Be sure to get your car washed while shopping and eating!  The Kapa'a High School Interact Club will be holding a car wash fundraiser at the same time at Sloggett. Several of our youth group members (including Interact President Cassidy Yatsko) will be doing double duty at the rummage sale and car wash!
Thursday Futsal

Heavenly Hikes First Outing: Sunday, February 23
All Saints' newest ministry, Heavenly Hikes, will be going on their first outing on Sunday, February 23, at 11:15 am, following the second service. The first hike will be the East Shore path, easy enough for most everyone to join in on. Monthly hikes are being planned for the last Sunday of the month. To learn more about this ministry and to sign up for e-mail updates, visit the webpage HERE, and don't forget to bring your walking shoes to church!!!
2013 relay late group
The Ke Akua Youth Group and ECW are teaming up again to battle cancer! This year's Relay for Life will be taking place on Saturday May 3-4 in Hanapepe. Last year, the team raised over $3,500 for the American Cancer Society, and won the "Lap Dance" trophy for their choreographed number! 

To help raise funds, part of the proceeds from the food booth/bake sale for the Rummage Sale on February 22, (see earlier above) will be going to Relay. We will also be selling luminarias in the coming months.  If you'd like to donate online, you can visit our team page HERE.  Shout out to Fr. Ryan and Dr. Erin for their super generous donation to help get us started to reach our team goal!!! 
Special Collections for Hale Ho'omalu 
The ECW has started up their special collections for Hale Ho'omalu again, a family service center located 1/2 block away from All Saints'.  For the month of February, they will be collecting toiletries: toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant.  
All Saints' has been a supporter of Hale Ho'omalu for many years, and the special collections are in addition to packaged and canned goods that are always welcome, as well as monetary donations.  All donations can be left in the red wagon at the church entrance every Sunday. 
All Saints' First Saturday Market
Church members are only $10 all the time!
For more information on First Saturday Market events, visit the webpage HERE.  (Please note that the $10 promo rate for ALL vendors continues!)  If you have any questions, please contact the church office at 822-4267 or e-mail the church office

Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany
O God, the strength of all who put their trust in you: Mercifully accept our prayers; and because in our weakness we can do nothing good without you, give us the help of your grace, that in keeping your commandments we may please
you both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.
