Church Work Day this Saturday, May 24
Maintenance of the Tree Deck

The tree deck will be the focal point of Saturday's work day.  The Crocker's were busy at it Thursday power washing the deck in preparation. Please come on down anytime between 8:00 am - 12:00 noon.

Flowers Needed for Memorial Day Decorating
Sunday, May 25
In observance of Memorial Day, the Sunday School's annual cleaning and decorating of the graves and Columbarium will be taking place to honor our own loved ones that have passed on. As always, we welcome flowers and greenery to decorate.  You may leave them at the sink by the graveyard or on the lanai of Memorial Hall on Sunday morning.
Tailgating & Tackling the Sleeping Giant!
This Sunday, May 25 (Weather permitting)
Tailgating isn't just for sporting events--- All Saints' will be "tailgating" it this Sunday following the second service... instead of the standard refreshment hour, we'll be lining up the trucks with coolers and snacks... feel free to share something too.  Right after that, all are invited to join in on the  next Heavenly Hikes outing that will take members up to the Sleeping Giant, the familiar landmark that serves as the backdrop for the church. Plans are to meet at the trail head in Wailua Houselots (next to 5290 Haleilio Rd.) at 11:45 am, or caravan over from church.
Aloha and Welcome to All Saints Annalise!
All Saints' is blessed to welcome our summer intern, Annalise Castro, who will be arriving on Kaua'i on June 6, and will be with us through the summer. Annalise is currently attending Virgina Theological Seminary and will be staying in the cottage next to the Rectory. As an intern, she will assist Fr. Ryan in services and other "priestly" duties, but will also be discerning her call for which we are grateful to support.

She is no stranger to All Saints' though. Back in February of 2010, Annalise led the Episcopal Church's formation event for high school youth, Happening. All Saints' was the site that brought together youth from around the state for a weekend of spiritual formation, worship and fellowship!  She later came back with a group of young adults from St. Peter's, for a weekend of cleaning, painting, and general maintenance around the church.  We are delighted to welcome Annalise back and hope she has a wonderful time on Kaua'i!

NOTE: This Sunday's Free Will Offering will be given to Annalise to support her while she is serving at All Saints'.

The following is an introductory letter from Annalise...enjoy!

Aloha! My name is Annalise Castro. I am a postulant in the Diocese of Hawaii. I grew up in Portland, Oregon. I left Oregon for Bangkok, Thailand, and taught English in underprivileged communities for two years. During my time in Bangkok, I learned to speak Thai. This eventually led me to the University of Hawaii at Manoa. It was through the campus ministry at UH that I was introduced to the Episcopal Church. Later I was received as a formal member. I graduated with my B.A. in Southeast Asian Studies in 2011. After graduation from UH, I stayed in Hawaii and worked various jobs. I worked on staff at St. Peter's in Honolulu before attending seminary. I am currently attending Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, VA, where I just finished my first year. I have two years left at VTS until I will graduate with my Masters in Divinity. I am on the ordination track and hope to serve the Church as a priest one day. I am looking forward to spending the summer with the All Saints community and being back home in the Islands for a few months! I look forward to meeting all of you! 

The following is an e-mail that was sent to Fr. Ryan from Bishop Chang, who recently underwent surgery for cancer and is recuperating on the mainland.
Thank you from Bishop Chang


Please convey to the All Saints' Ohana my deepest gratitude for their prayers during my surgery and recovery. Your card was forwarded to me in Los Angeles and was received this afternoon. My recovery continues to move forward, and tomorrow I am planning to attend the early service at Prince of Peace, Woodland Hills.


May the Risen Christ continue to embrace you and the All Saints' Ohana with the blessings of Easter.

Discohana Fever!!!
Uhhhh--- is that Sly Stone, John Travolta or Elvis Presley in the house?  We'll leave that one alone! One thing's for sure, the children, parents and staff that attended the All Saints' Preschool Discohana event on Saturday, May 17, had a blast and raised a lot of money for their big fundraiser of the year. To view some great photos of the event, visit the preschool website HERE. (Pictured above is preschool teacher Lauren Kasprzyk and who else, Fr. Ryan Stone-Travolta-Presley!)
