A Message from Fr. Ryan:

Dear All Saints' 'Ohana,

I am pleased announce the hiring of Hank Curtis as All Saints' Interim Director of Music Ministries. In the interim role, Hank will concentrate the bulk of his time supporting and growing the music ministries within worship. Hank is a gifted and experienced musician who appreciates the opportunity to make a lasting and tangible impact on the All Saints' community through music.

With both Christmas and Easter in sight, Hank's musical gifts and leadership will be invaluable to the overall worship experience, especially as he directs the All Saints' Choir and broadens the musical landscape of the congregation. Hank's presence also means we will finally be able to launch a monthly Taize service in 2015.

He has served as a musical leader in congregations both in California and on Kauai. He is both a virtuoso pianist and accomplished composer. He made his recital debut at age eleven at UC Irvine, and his concerto debut with the San Diego Symphony at fifteen. He has performed world-wide as a soloist and chamber musician, and has written numerous compositions in many genres. Hank is set to release his fourth piano CD "As Time Goes By" that features 13 original arrangements and one original song.

Hank studied two years at the University of Southern California in piano performance and composition. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Music Composition from The Mannes College of Music in New York City and Master of Arts in Music Composition from the University of California, San Diego.

Hank's first service is this Sunday, November 16th. Please welcome him and his family to the All Saints' 'Ohana.

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! There are a few more open lawn spaces available, but all other areas are being wait listed. Spaces do open up, especially as the date draws nearer and folks switch out or do not get their payments in, so if you are interested in a space, be sure to register and get on a wait list HERE.  Remember that active church members get one free space! 

Seeking Silent Auction Items
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.

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.

Saturday Markets Will Continue in 2015

After a year of trial and error, permit changes, date changes and layout changes, a meeting was held on Sunday, November 9, to determine the fate of Saturday Markets. After much discussion, it was decided to continue the markets into 2015, with renewed energy and commitment. A pricing structure will be finalized and distributed within the next few weeks, and plans for monthly theme events, paid advertising, online registration, and active solicitation of vendors are being planned for 2015. So spread the word and show your support of All Saints' Saturday Markets!  Visit the webpage HERE.
