Christ is Risen!  The Lord is Risen Indeed!!!

The Easter season kicked off with a rousing Easter Vigil Service on Saturday evening, April 19, with a blast from the past, '60s rock band The Doors, who "broke on through" Fr. Ryan's sermon! Easter worship continued early Sunday morning with a beautiful beach side service. Despite a wet communion "blessing" nothing could dampen the spirits of all those in attendance, most of whom made the short procession to Baby Beach from the church at 5:45 a.m.  
As folks returned from the beach, Fr. Ryan barely had a moment to rest before the 7:00 a.m. service, and again at the 9:30 a.m. service that saw a packed house! Then everyone gathered for a super celebratory Easter Festival led by the Ke Akua Youth Group, with egg hunts for keiki and kupuna, contests, games, prizes, crafts, and loads of delicious food! 

Look for a special Easter issue coming out soon along with links to the photo gallery of Holy Week services and Easter... and if you can't wait, visit the All Saints' Facebook page HERE to view over 250 photos in the different albums of Holy Week and Easter. To listen to all of Fr. Ryan's sermons, click HERE.
New Church Crosses Unveiled on Easter

For those of you that were lucky enough to get a seat inside the church on Easter, you were among the first to view the new crosses on the church walls made by members. This relatively new tradition of unveiling works of art on Easter didn't disappoint, with over a dozen ultra-creative crosses made with this year's theme of the environment in mind.  
Members used recycled items, green waste and beach findings. Barbed wire resembling the crown of thorns, the scent of fresh Rosemary cuttings, a single yellow rose, broken glass and driftwood are just a few of the materials that served as inspiration for these creations.  Be sure to read the story behind each of the crosses in a pamphlet entitled "The Way of the Cross" located on the table at the entrance of the church. Many thanks to all the members who took part in this year's artistic spiritual journey and for brightening up the walls for another year!
Tropic Care Tree Plaque
It has been just over 2 years since Tropic Care came to Kaua'i and transformed the All Saints' property into a scene right out of M*A*S*H! With the church transformed into a medical facility, the gym kitchen into a dentist office, and Memorial Hall into a pharmacy and optometry center, folks lined up for two weeks to reap the benefits of free services! In exchange for using the property, members of the National Guard built the tree deck that has served us well. In case you haven't seen it yet, a bronze plaque was recently mounted on the deck dedicated to the men and women of Tropic Care.  Many thanks to David Crocker for creating the custom bracket and installing the plaque.
Pictures of the Week
Congratulations Dustin Moises and Glenn Sato!

Congratulations to members Dustin Moises and Glenn Sato for their winning entries in the County of Kauai's Earth Day Photo Contest! Dustin's photo (above) is of his daughter Shealee taken during the All Saints' beach clean-up at Kealia earlier this month. Driftwood collected during the clean-up was used for her and sister Kenzie's crosses, that are now mounted in the church. Below is Glenn Sato's photo of Mayor Carvalho, entitled "No.1 Bicycling Advocate". Congratulations and great job Dustin and Glenn!!!

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. 
Futsal is tentatively ON HOLD!
Due to the busy schedule of our youth organizers and many upcoming church events, Futsal is tentatively on hold until further notice. Check out the Facebook page HERE to stay informed, or e-mail Sybil.

Second Sunday of Easter

Almighty and everlasting God, who in the Paschal mystery
established the new covenant of reconciliation: Grant that all
who have been reborn into the fellowship of Christ's Body
may show forth in their lives what they profess by their faith;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
