Fun Summer Sundays have started!
The official Sunday school year has ended, and normally we take a break until Homecoming Sunday in September. However, there have been requests for some sort of child care during the second service, so we are offering a fun Summer Sunday class in Memorial Hall where children can enjoy Bible related crafts and games. If you would like to help with the class, please see or e-mail Sybil. Volunteers can choose to serve every Sunday or rotate to serve just a few times--- we are FLEXIBLE!!!

Be sure to spread the word!!!  Interested vendors can contact the church office at 822-4267, or e-mail allsaintskauai@hawaiiantel.net. 

We are currently going through the legal process to change our first Saturday market to a more flexible day of the month so that we are not competing with other venues on that very busy first Saturday in Kapa'a. We will keep you posted and hopefully be able to resume our markets in August!

A Very Special Pentecost Sunday
Aloha & Welcome Annalise!!!
Pentecost Sunday, June 8, was a very special day at All Saints'! Not only did we celebrate the Pentecost dressed all in red, but All Saints' welcomed postulant Annalise Castro, who will be with us through the summer. Annalise is currently attending Virginia Theological Seminary and has been a big part of the young adult campus ministry on O'ahu. Since her arrival on June 6, she has been immersing herself in "church life" under the guidance of Fr. Ryan and assisting at all services. Welcome Annalise! 
'Aha Mele Concert Series is a HIT!
Then in the afternoon, the first 'Aha Mele Benefit Concert took place in the church.  It began with a pre-concert champagne reception in the Sloggett Center at 2:00 p.m. Morris Wise, the force behind the reconstruction of the pipe organ, donated most of the delicious pastries for the reception, and youth member Mason Tabura entertained everyone on his ukulele -- the perfect complement for a wonderful afternoon of fellowship and cheer.

At 3:00 p.m., everyone headed over to the church where the very talented Paul Togioka and Ali'i Strings performed. Both performances garnered well-deserved standing ovations.  The musicians donated their time and talent toward this fundraising effort to repair the organ. Morris Wise also put on a very informative demonstration educating everyone on the ABCs of pipe organs.

Mahalo to everyone that helped to make this first in a series of concerts so successful!  The next concert is scheduled for Sunday, November 30! Mark your calendars!!!  To view more photos of the day's event, visit the photo gallery on the church website HERE.
Fr. Ryan's First Anniversary & Father's Day!
Sunday, June 15, marked the first year anniversary of Fr. Ryan's ministry with All Saints'. Rev. Mary Tudela was on hand to provide a very special blessing and laying on of hands at both services, with the prayer read by Wardens Janet Wilson and Bill Caldwell.  

June 15 was also Father's Day, and members of the Ke Akua Youth Group presented special decorated rocks they made, to all the fathers in attendance. There was a potluck following the second service to celebrate this special day for the Newman's and our fathers!

To view more photos of the day, visit the photo gallery on the church website HERE.

June'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 June.  They will be collecting dry goods such as pasta, Hamburger Helper, Rice, Bread and Crackers.  All Saints' has been a supporter of Hale Ho'omalu for many years, and the special collections are in addition to any 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.
