Lenten Program & Holy Week Schedule Announced
2014 Lent Holy Week
Beginning in March, there will be a variety of different formation programs and sessions being offered right here at All Saints'! Be sure to mark your calendars for these great opportunities to grow in your faith and understanding of what it means to be a Christian, and how to become an active disciple. Click on the picture above to view these programs and the schedule for Holy Week.

BAPTISM OR CONFIRMATION INQUIRIES
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.

WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING AT ALL SAINTS':
Store Volunteers Share Lunch & Laughs

Volunteers of Hale Lani Christian Store enjoyed some downtime at their second annual volunteer luncheon at Kauai Pasta on Friday, February 21. Looking rather "smart" with labels on their foreheads, the gang shared quite a few laughs (and looks from diners), as well as a delicious lunch!  We give thanks to the crew who volunteer their time and energy to man the store that the community has embraced whole-heartedly.

MAHALO TO OUR CHURCH 'OHANA!!!
Weekend Fundraiser a HUGE SUCCESS!
As the sun began to rise on a dry (yes DRY is worth mentioning after all the rain we've been having) Saturday morning, a few members of the Ke Akua Youth Group that stayed up all night were struggling to keep their eyes open. It was a long night of preparation and fellowship for the day's rummage sale ahead. Others were just getting up, preparing breakfast, and ready to start production on SPAM musubis.  But everyone felt God's blessing for the break in weather that allowed the youth to have a very successful fundraiser! 

Saturday's rummage sale (including generous donations from members) totaled $1,900, making the marathon over-nighter in Memorial Hall worth every yawn! Proceeds help fund the youth group's activities and mission work, that includes the upcoming Episcopal Youth Event (EYE'14) this summer in Philadelphia. 

Under the food tent, youth and ECW members joined forces to raise money for Relay for Life. The ladies from the ECW baked and cooked up a storm with delicious goodies overflowing!  Wayne Doliente served up his famous chili, and hot dogs and musubis were going fast. Over at Sloggett, the Kapa'a Interact Club was holding their car wash (with several youth members doing double duty), that certainly helped boost sales at the food booth. In just 4 hours, the bake sale and food booth made over $1,100! Relay for Life luminaria sales were also over $500, making the whole event a super success!!!  
A HUGE MAHALO to our supportive church 'ohana and to all involved for their hard work to set-up and breakdown, for the donations of items to sell and for shopping so generously! Special shout out to Cathy Mikula in Ohio for always mailing us boxes and boxes of unused clothing---they are the first to go!!! Be sure to visit the All Saints' website HERE to view more photos from the event.

Heavenly Hikes First Outing was "Heavenly"!

After weeks of rain and temperamental weather, the first monthly Heavenly Hikes outing on Sunday was blessed with sunshine and gentle trades. About a dozen members gathered after the second service with hats and water bottles in hand. Mary Margaret led a quick blessing, and the group set off on their walk along the shoreline in Kapa'a. To view a slide show of their hike, visit the All Saints' website HERE. To learn more about this ministry and to sign up for e-mail updates, visit the webpage HERE.  The next hike is scheduled for Sunday, March 30.

Eighth Sunday after the Epiphany
O Lord, you have taught us that without love whatever we do is worth nothing; Send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts your greatest gift, which is love, the true bond of peace and of all virtue, without which whoever lives is accounted
dead before you. Grant this for the sake of your only Son Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy
Spirit, one God, now and for ever. 
Amen.
