Discussing the Future of the Pipe Organ
Wednesday, October 15
All are invited to attend an important gathering about our pipe organ on Wednesday, October 15, from 5:30 - 6:30 PM, in the church. The Vestry will host a conversation centering on the future of All Saints' historic organ. 

Manuel Rosales of Rosales Organ Builders, Inc. based in Los Angeles, and Morris Wise, will share with the congregation their findings and initial vision for rebuilding Kauai's only pipe organ. During the conversation, there will be opportunities for Q&A. 

Rosales is a premier organ builder who has done many noteworthy organ builds and installations. The goal of Rosales' consultation work is to offer to our 'ohana a vision of what the pipe organ might look like, sound like, and how it would function. Also, prior to making any decision about the future of the organ, the congregation needs to better understand the financial investment and resources needed to rebuild the organ. Please join us for this wonderful opportunity to learn more about the organ and to discuss the future of this historic musical instrument.

All Saints' Holiday Craft Fair
Early Bird Registration Deadline: October 15!

This year's Holiday Craft Fair will be held on Saturday, December 6, and early notices have gone out to all past vendors by e-mail. We expect spaces to fill up quickly, so register online early and take advantage of the early bird discount that ends on October 15. Regular contributing church members qualify for one free space in the craft fair, but must utilize a special code to receive this.  Please e-mail Sybil or call her for the code before registering online. 

With over 70 booth spaces, the craft fair is the youth group's largest fundraiser of the year with proceeds from the food booth and booth spaces going directly to their outreach and mission work.

This year, the youth have chosen the following charities for their silent auction proceeds:  The Red Cross, River of Life Mission (Honolulu) and the American Cancer Society (Relay for Life).

Worship Enhancements Now Available!
All Saints' now has portions of the service bulletin in large-size print to make reading along with the service easier for those who prefer it. There are also a few headsets available that will help folks hear the service more clearly, or for those in the back rows that might have a hard time understanding or hearing what is being said. Both items are available through our ushers who will be more than happy to set you up!

The nursery has also been hooked up so that the service can be heard through a speaker in that room. Parents with very young children can now sit and relax with them while they play, and are also able to hear the service.

Blessing of the Animals   
The annual Blessing of the Animals service took place on Sunday, October 5, during the 9:30 AM service, but pets that showed up at the earlier 7:00 AM service also received blessings. Fr. Ryan had an interesting line-up of pets. "We had dogs, a fish, stuffed animals, iPhone pictures, and one undisclosed creature held in a fist," said Marge Akana, who took the photos shown here. Pictured above from left, Marge's husband Bill is pictured above with their precious pup; LEM Mary Margaret Smith's sweet pet waits patiently during the service for his turn; Jayden's pet fish gets a blessing, and Kenzie's "pet" stuffed animal is also blessed. More photos of this service will be posted on the photo gallery of the All Saints' website next week.
