Lenten Mediation Books Available
If you haven't already picked up a copy of the Episcopal Relief and Development's Lenten Meditations for 2014, they are available at the church entrance table. This year's meditations focus on creating economic opportunities and strengthening communities, with a particular focus on empowering women. The daily readings are co-authored by a group of leaders from across the Anglican Communion, who bring a range of perspectives as they reflect on Scripture and other sources of spiritual wisdom.

Annual Easter Art Project Announced

It's that time of year to get the creative juices flowing and to begin working on our new art project for the church walls that will be unveiled on Easter. This year's theme will focus on the environment and we are asking interested members to create a cross or cross picture with recycled materials. It can also include green waste and things found on the beach.  

It is hoped that the whole process of creating your piece will be a spiritual journey, from the prayerful gathering of your materials to the design, and finally its assembly. If possible, we would like to have a brief description about the creation of your piece and the inspiration behind it.

Please keep in mind that these pictures or items will need to be hung on the walls with limited space, so it should be no wider than 16". Please also include a hanger or hooks on it so that it can be easily hung. Deadline for submission is Sunday, April 13.   

Last year's pictures that have been taken down for Lent are in the church office, so owners can come and claim them there.

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':
Picture of the Week - Ashes to Go!

Fr. Ryan hit the streets on Ash Wednesday, offering ashes to anyone willing to stop and receive a blessing. The day turned out to be a huge success with dozens of passersby pulling into the driveway to receive their ashes. Even Dennis Fujimoto from the Garden Island Newspaper stopped by to check it out-- you can read his article and view his photos HERE. To learn more about Ashes to Go which began as an Episcopal outreach in 2007, and has now spread across the nation and to other Christian organizations, visit the website HERE.

The Season of Lent Has Begun

Wednesday, March 5, marked the beginning of Lent with Ash Wednesday services.  Pictured above are Choir Director Curtis Shiramizu and youth member Mason Tabura performing at the evening service.

Be sure to read Bishop Fitzpatrick's Lent reflection HERE and the Presiding Bishop's message for Lent HERE

But what does the season mean for you? Consider attending two special offerings that Fr. Ryan has lined up during this season: Passion and Purpose, a three-week study series beginning on March12, and Calming the Storm, a silent retreat on Saturday April 12. See the Lent & Holy Week schedule below. For more information, e-mail Fr. Ryan.

Parent Power!

With five of our youth group members graduating this year, their parents are making sure that their Project Grad night will be awesome. Pictured above are Nadine Nakamura (Casey's mom), Nancy Wilson (Cassie's mom) and Jack and Janece Yatsko (Cassidy's parents) helping raise funds at a McNite event at the Lihue McDonald's Thursday evening. With the temporary closure of the Kapa'a McDonald's, folks had to travel a little further, but that didn't stop Fr. Ryan who snapped this picture while the hard-working parents took a quick break.

First Sunday in Lent
Almighty God, whose blessed Son was led by the Spirit to be
tempted by Satan; Come quickly to help us who are assaulted
by many temptations; and, as you know the weaknesses of
each of us, let each one find you mighty to save; through
Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with
you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever..
 
Amen.
