Reminder: Pick up your Lenten Meditation Book
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.
Eucharistic Minister & Eucharistic Visitor Training
There will be a Eucharistic Minister and Eucharistic Visitor Training on Saturday, March 29, beginning at 8:30 am at All Saints'. Anyone interested may attend the training, but to become licensed requires the endorsement of your priest. 

The training is open to all Episcopalians. For more information on the training and to register, click HERE.  
Heavenly Hikes Heads North - Sunday, March 30

Heavenly Hikes will be taking their next hike north to Kilauea, on Sunday, March 30.

Save the date! Restoration Sunday - April 6

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.
Cottage Renovation Has Begun

Last Saturday's work day was spent gutting out the cottage next to the rectory, and sanding the wood floors. Despite the rainy weather, the small crew was able to get a lot accomplished!  Pictured above, David Murray breaks down some furniture; cottage cleared out and sanding begun; Fr. Ryan, Linda Crocker, David Murray, Janet Wilson and David Crocker take a break after loading up the truck. 
House Blessing

Pictured above center is Chris Neumann who invited members to her house blessing on Saturday, March 8.  Fr. Ryan blessed her new home in Wailua, and members enjoyed a huge feast afterwards, prepared by Chris. 
Reminder: Annual Easter Art Project

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.  
Luminaria Sales Continue After the 9:30 Service

You can either decorate them yourself, or have our youth decorate it for you along with the name of someone that has battled or is battling cancer. You can also donate online to our team (All Saints Angels) or an individual team member HERE.
