All Saints' Sunday this Sunday!
November 2, Festive Eucharists

It's "our" day! All Saints' Sunday is this coming Sunday, November 2, and there will be a Festive liturgy at both services, along with a special Aloha Hour Celebration after the 9:30 service. Be sure to stick around for lots of fun, games and prizes! Bring a dish to share for this special Sunday gathering! 

The 2014-2015 Stewardship Campaign has kicked off with a theme entitled "Beautiful". Members should have received the campaign brochure with pledge card in the mail. If not, please contact the office at 822-4267, or see Stewardship Chair and Junior Warden, Bill Caldwell.

The Beautiful campaign will feature quarterly themes focusing on "the divine beauty that surrounds and enriches us." The breakfast presentation that was originally scheduled for October 19, and was postponed due to Hurricane Ana, was a part of the kick-off. It will be rescheduled in the near future. For more information, on this campaign, visit the Stewardship webpage HERE.
KIA Thanksgiving Luncheon Coming Up!
Donations & Volunteers Needed

The annual KIA Thanksgiving Luncheon is coming up on Thanksgiving Day, November 27!  All Saints' representatives Diane Sato and Mary Margaret Smith have been busy meeting with other representatives from the participating churches for this wonderful community event. 

Volunteer sign-up sheets will be on the back table of the Church beginning this Sunday. They are also seeking donations of the small boxed juices (about 300) for the home delivered lunches, and fresh fruits and vegetables that will be used for decorating the church and tables in the gym.

For more information and to download the promotional flyers, visit the All Saints' website HERE, or see Diane or Mary. Home delivery forms can also be found on the webpage. 
November Collection for Hale Ho'omalu 
For the month of October, the ECW will be collecting juices and packaged saimin (ramen).  Members can continue to donate other canned and packaged goods as well as monetary gifts. All donations can be left in the red wagon at the church entrance every Sunday. Hale Ho'omalu is a family services center located a half-block away from the church.
'Aha Mele Concert Scheduled
Sunday, November 30, 2014
The second 'Aha Mele Concert has been set for Sunday, November 30, from 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM, in the Church. Once again, we are blessed to have talented musicians donate their time and energy to help raise awareness about our pipe organ that is need of serious repair. 

Alan Van Zee and Friends will be performing, and includes the Kauai Voices, led by Director Randy Leonard. Special guest musicians will feature vocalist Juno Apalla, Larry McCreery on the French Horn and Victoria Aiu on the Violin. 

This concert is free (although donations are being accepted) and will include a pupu reception on the lawn following the concert. Members are being asked to help by bringing a pupu to share at the reception.  For more information, visit the webpage HERE, or click on the poster shown to view a larger version.
Holiday Craft Fair Filling Up!

This year's Holiday Craft Fair on Saturday, December 6, promises to be our best yet with over 70 vendors and a wide variety of products! The early bird deadline of October 15 has passed, and early sign-ups broke all records! 

At the moment, we have a wait list for some of the areas that have filled up including corner spots in the gym and covered tent. There are still a number of open lawn spaces available. Spaces do open up, especially as the date draws nearer and folks switch out or do not get their payments in, so if you haven't signed up yet, be sure to register and get on a wait list HERE.

The craft fair, which is run by the Ke Akua Youth Group, will also be holding a Silent Auction to raise funds for 3 different charities. Last year, they raised over $900 for victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. This year, they are raising funds for The Red Cross, River of Life Mission (Honolulu) and the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.  

If you would like to donate to the Silent Auction, e-mail Sybil. For more information about the craft fair, visit the webpage HERE.
November Saturday Market is Cancelled
All Saints' has long been the staging site for the annual Veteran's Day Parade, which usually falls on the second Saturday of November. For this reason, we will be cancelling November's Market.  You can still sign up to participate in the December Market on December 13, and also the Ke Akua Youth Group's Annual Holiday Craft Fair on December 6. Space is still available for the craft fair, but different pricing applies. For more information, click HERE.  
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.

Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant that we may run without stumbling to obtain your heavenly

(The Newspaper of the Diocese)
The 46th Annual Meeting of Convention
The annual Meeting of Convention for the Episcopal Diocese of Hawai'i took place on October 24 & 25, at The Cathedral of St. Andrew in Honolulu. Along with Fr. Ryan, All Saints' delegates (pictured below) were Chris Neumann, Mary Schulz, Cece Caldwell and Curtis Shiramizu.

The Convention featured guest speaker The Very Rev. Kevin Martin, who has held a number of workshops on congregational development around the Diocese, including All Saints' a few years ago. Bishop Fitzpatrick's Address spoke of the changes and transitions in store for the Diocese, and there was spirited discussion about the budget and a couple of resolutions. 

The highlight of the Convention was a presentation by some of the youth delegates to the Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) this past summer. A modified version of the video shown at the All Saints' presentation was shown, and two of our youth, Mason Tabura and Grace Yatsko, along with 11 other youth, shared their experiences. Delegates were clearly touched and moved by the passion and candor of the youth. The video, that also includes a clip of Casey Nakamura at the very beginning, is available for viewing on Vimeo HERE, or on the Diocesan website

Full coverage of the meeting will be coming out in a special edition E-Chronicle soon. In the meantime, you can view the Journal of the meeting and photos on the Diocesan webpage HERE.
Workday Diehards!

With so many members busy and traveling about, this past weekend's workday saw a light turnout. Many thanks to those that showed up to help keep our property clean and sparkling!  Pictured above is David Crocker, shining up the signage; Kim Shields cleaning the church windows; David Murray gathering trash and Nora Takenouchi making sure the windows are squeaky clean! Photos by another diehard worker, Marge Akana.
