EYE'14 Updates from Casey

With little more than three months remaining before our youth delegation heads off to Philadelphia for the triennial Episcopal Youth Event (EYE), planning it is a monumental task with over 1,000 registered to attend. Our very own Casey Nakamura is part of the planning team, and in an article that appeared in the latest Diocesan E-News, she shared an update of the February planning meeting she attended in New York. Pictured above is Casey with Cydney Jackson from San Diego, who was her roommate in New York, and Valerie Harris, from The Episcopal Church's Formation & Vocation Ministry. You can read Casey's article in the April 2, 2014 E-News HERE. Please keep her in your prayers as she heads off for another meeting in Philadelphia this month.

In the meantime, please support our youth and the youth delegation representing Hawai'i.  Each person must raise $1,500 to help cover costs. The upcoming Mother's Day Craft Fair is a fundraiser for our youth, and you can also purchase a Diocese of Hawai'i t-shirt (see above) that supports the entire youth delegation. Hurry---deadline to order these shirts is April 13.


Eucharistic Minister & Visitor Training at All Saints'

Nearly 30 people from the Episcopal churches on Kaua'i converged on All Saints' for a Eucharistic Minister & Visitor Training on Saturday, March 29, 2014. Fr. Ryan led the training to members from our church as well as St. Michael's and The Episcopal Church of West Kaua'i. There were a number of newbies along with very experienced Eucharistic Ministers that included our very own Dileep Bal who has 30+ years under his belt. With more Eucharistic Visitors now trained on island, it is hoped that more home visits can be made to people who are unable to make it to Sunday services.  
If you or someone you know is unable to make it to a Sunday service due to illness or hardship and would like to receive Communion, please contact the church office at 822-4267, or e-mail.
Heavenly Hikers Head North

Despite the unstable weather and muddy trails, twenty-seven "Heavenly Hikers" headed up north to the Wai Koa Loop Trail in Kilauea. Luckily, there was only a light drizzle, and members enjoyed a wonderful hike with beautiful scenic spots.  To view a slideshow of the hike (thanks John Hanaoka), visit the All Saints website HERE.  Pictured above is the group still "clean", before hitting the trail.

The next scheduled hike will be part of the "Stewardship of Our Aina" program coming up this Sunday, April 6, at Kealia Beach. (See article above.)
Picture of the Week
On Friday, March 28, the children of All Saints' Preschool were treated to the "world's greatest playground" as Fr. Ryan refers to it.  The children went on an excursion to the Na 'Āina Kai Botanical Garden in Kilauea to view its beautiful gardens, but the real fun took place afterwards in their playground and water feature. To view more photos of their trip, visit the preschool website HERE. (Photo by Fr. Ryan Newman) 


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.

Fifth Sunday in Lent
Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that,
among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts
may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with
you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
