Aloha All Saints' 'Ohana,


Aleluia. Ua ala hou 'o Kristo. Ua ala hou nō ho'i ka Haku. Aleluia.

Alleluia. Christ is risen. The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia.


This Easter is a special one for Erin and me-we will be celebrating our first Easter with our new 'Ohana. Since arriving in June 2013, we have been deeply touched by the spirit of Aloha that embraces every single worship service, outreach opportunity, class, event, and social gathering. Mahalo nui loa for the love, support, and hospitality you have shared with us.


Easter is not a day, nor is Easter just a season-Easter is a lifetime experience, which offers hope, joy, and love to all of God's children. Jesus' sacrifice on the Cross and His triumphant resurrection from the grave are intended to inscribe God's love on our hearts, minds, and souls, each and every day of our lives. On Easter Day, we not only celebrate Jesus' resurrection, but we also celebrate our identity as Easter people-we are marked as Christ's own forever. We are Easter people today, tomorrow, and until the end of time.


As Easter people, we are called to seek and serve Christ in all persons, to strive for justice and peace among all people, and to respect the dignity of every human being. Our call is not a single day experience, nor is it a seasonal aspiration-our call is a lifetime opportunity to share hope, joy, and love to all of God's children. For this wonderful and awesome call we joyously shout Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!


We invite you to share in the Glory of Easter at All Saints'. Service times and additional information are available on the All Saints' website: www.allsaintskauai.org


Happy Easter!


Faithfully in the Risen Christ,

The Reverend Ryan D. Newman

Organ Fundraiser: Concert on June 9
Come to the Planning Meeting on Tuesday, April 22
Our beautiful pipe organ is need of some serious repair work that comes with a hefty price tag. David Murray, who has been actively involved in the care of our organ for several years, has teamed up with Morris Wise, who has the knowledge and skills to do most of the work. They have come up with an idea for a fundraising concert that will take place on Monday, June 9.  Morris has already secured the Ali'i Strings to play, and we are seeking other musicians to support this concert.  

There will be a planning meeting on Tuesday, April 22, at 6:00 p.m., in Memorial Hall. Anyone who is interested in getting involved with this fundraising effort is encouraged to attend. We also welcome any suggestions and help in making this a wonderful event for the entire community.  If you have any questions, please e-mail David Murray.
Heavenly Hikes - Sunday, April 27

The next Heavenly Hikes heads up Wailua to the Kuilau Trail on Sunday, April 27, after the second service.  Folks can plan to caravan to the trail head or meet there at around 11:30 am. The trail is rated as easy-moderate, and is a little over 4 miles round trip.  Be sure to bring your water bottle and snack or light lunch.  For a description of the hike and directions to the trail head (it's 7 miles from the church), visit the Heavenly Hikes webpage HERE.

Happy Birthday Rev. Mary!

Celebrating her birthday this past Sunday, Rev. Mary Tudela treated members to an ice cream fantasy after the 9:30 service!  Forget the diet--- folks indulged in the irresistible selection of toppings  for their ice cream sundaes.  There was an assortment of yummy candies, crushed cookies, toasted coconut, macadamia nuts and every topping imaginable including hot fudge and caramel!  Thank you Rev. Mary and hope you had a wonderful birthday! 
Holy Week Features New Worship Experiences

Holy Week has begun, and along with familiar traditions, Fr. Ryan has introduced a couple of very special worship experiences that included a Monday evening Stations of the Cross on the Kealia coastal path. Nearly 30 people showed up for the 2-mile hike that ended just as the lunar eclipse was beginning. Members took turns reading and carrying the wooden Easter cross through the Stations.  

On Tuesday evening, with candles aglow, All Saints' held its first Taizé  service. The music and atmosphere created a deeply peaceful, calming and meditative experience. Members shared their hopes that more Taizé services are in the future.

Another new service coming up (see schedule above) will be an early Sunrise Service at Baby Beach on Easter morning.  Folks can choose to process from the church at 5:45 a.m. or meet at the beach at 6:00 a.m.  Be sure to bring a chair. A complete wrap up of Holy Week and Easter will be coming out in a special edition E-News.

Saturday, May 10 - 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

The Ke Akua Youth Group will be hosting a special Mother's Day Craft Fair on Saturday, May 10, from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm. The fair will take place out on the lawn between the gym and church. Vendors have been asked to create items with moms and the special women in our lives in mind.  There will also be a food booth and Silent Auction.  All proceeds will benefit the Ke Akua Youth Group's outreach activities and summer conference and mission.  For more information, click on the links below, or e-mail Sybil.
Seeking Silent Auction Items
For Mother's Day Craft Fair

The upcoming Mother's Day Craft Fair on Saturday, May 10, is seeking donations for the silent auction.  The craft fair is being run by the youth group to cover the remaining cost of their summer conference and mission in Philadelphia. Last December's silent auction held during the holiday craft fair, raised over $900 to victims of Typhoon Haiyan, and although this fair is much smaller (outdoors only) they are hoping that the food booth and silent auction will be successful enough to cover all expenses. If you would like to contribute an item, please see Sybil or e-mail her.
April's Special Collection for Hale Ho'omalu 
The ECW's special collections for Hale Ho'omalu, a family service center located 1/2 block away from All Saints', continues with new items being requested for the month of April.  They will be collecting instant oatmeal (in packets), peanut butter, jelly and crackers.  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.
