Daughter's of the King Chapter is Installed at All Saints'

Mana'olana, which means "hope" in Hawaiian, is the name of the newly installed All Saints' chapter of The Order of the Daughter's of the King (DOK). The ceremony took place during the 9:30 service this past Sunday, March 1, with members being blessed and welcomed by Shauna Jones, a board member of the diocesan DOK and chair of the St. Nicholas Chapter on O'ahu.  

Linda Crocker, who has been a member of the DOK on the mainland, introduced All Saints' members to the Order during the Ministry Fair on Homecoming Sunday, and is this chapter's president. "We're about prayer and service," said Linda, and welcomes all interested women to inquire and join the group. They plan to meet regularly about twice a month. 

There are currently four other chapters in the Diocese of Hawai'i, and the All Saints' Chapter makes it five. The national DOK mission is "... the extension of Christ's Kingdom through Prayer, Service and Evangelism." To learn more about DOK, visit the Diocesan website HERE, and also the national organization's website HERE.

Pictured above are the members of Mana'olana, (L-R) Robyn Putman, who is the Secretary & Treasurer, Fr. Ryan, President Linda Crocker, Diocesan Representative Shauna Jones, Mabel Antonio and Jan Hashizume.
Making Sense of the Sabbath Continues Through March
A Four-Week Spiritual Formation and Education Series
During the month of March, Fr. Ryan is leading a series of 4 Lenten classes. The classes are using the books, 24/6: A Prescription for a Healthier, Happier Life by Matthew Sleeth, and Simplify: Ten Practices to Unclutter Your Soul by Bill Hybels. 

PLEASE NOTE:  The classes are taking place on Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM in Memorial Hall, except for the third class. Instead of March 19, it will be held on Wednesday, March 18.
The first class in the 4-week series took place this past Thursday, with about 20 members who joined in the spirited discussions. Even if you missed the first class, you are still welcome to join in any session. For more information, e-mail Fr. Ryan, or call 822-4267. Pictured above, participants broke out into groups during Thursday's class.
Futsal Tournament: Saturday, March 28
The second All Saints' Futsal Tournament will be held on Saturday, March 28, from 10:00 AM - 5:30 PM. The tournament is free and open to all interested youth and adults. Last year's tournament rallied players from Waimea to Hanalei, and the sport is gaining popularity thoughout Hawai'i. 

Similar to indoor soccer, futsal requires technical ball handling skills and speed.  For more information and to register, visit the webpage HERE. To view a large version of the flyer and to share, check under What's Happening in Our Diocese & Community below. 
March Saturday Market: 
Going Green!
Vendor Registration Is Open
The next Saturday Market will be taking place on March 14, and it's all about recycling! Bill and Cece Caldwell will set up their truck and booth to collect e-waste that will be taken to the Lihue facility. Along with our regular crafters, vendors that sell craft items made from recycled or repurposed materials are invited to participate for free!

The youth and ECW will also be raising funds for Relay for Life, so come and show your support.

Saturday Markets are a great time to turn your "trash into cash"!  While you're doing some Spring cleaning, why not set up a booth and sell those items you no longer use.  

Click on the flyer to view a larger image and to share with all your friends and relatives! If you are interested in participating, visit the webpage HERE, or register HERE.  Reminder: Non-profits are always free!
2015 Relay for Life Fundraising
Luminarias on Sale After Sunday Services!
The Ke Akua Youth Group and ECW are teaming up again to raise funds for the American Cancer Society, and participating in this year's Relay for Life at Hanapepe on April 25-26. Last year, they set a personal team record raising over $4,000! We are once again asking for your support to help raise funds in a variety of ways:

Luminaria Purchase a luminaria! Luminarias will be on sale after Sunday services for $5.00 each. You can choose to decorate your own bag with the name of a loved one that has battled or is battling cancer, or the youth will decorate one for you. 

Make an online donation! Visit the Relay for Life website HERE and be sure to donate to the All Saints Angels team!  

Visit our fundraising booth! We will have a booth at the next two Saturday Markets on March 14 and April 11. We will have luminarias and a variety of theme items for sale.

March Special Collections for Hale Ho'omalu
During the month of March, the ladies of the ECW will be making a special collection of bar soap and shampoo for Hale Ho'omalu, a family services center located a half-block away from the church.  Donations of canned and packaged goods are always welcome as well as monetary gifts. All donations can be left in the red wagon at the church entrance every Sunday. 
King Kamehameha Up for Battle Again!
Lent madness
King Kamehameha IV won his first round in Lent Madness, a fun online activity that takes place each year during Lent, and is up again on Friday, March 13, against David Oakerhater.  Be sure to mark your calendars and vote for our King, but in the meantime, be sure to join in the fun and learn about the many Saints on our calendar. A different battle takes place each day, Monday through Friday, during Lent, with winners advancing on to another round until the final battle for the Golden Halo. You can learn more about Lent Madness HERE.

All Saints' Video: Year in Review Online
The annual Year in Review video that is usually shown at the Annual Meeting made a belated debut at the recent Shrove Tuesday gathering in the Rectory on February 17. The 20-minute video features highlights of the activities of All Saints and its members in chronological order from January through December, and is now available for viewing on the website HERE, or go directly to the VIMEO site HERE.  
Worship Enhancements Available!
Dont' forget to ask for a headset or large-print service bulletin! 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.

Third Sunday of Lent

Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and
inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all
adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Feasting and Fellowship at the Annual ECW Breakfast Gathering
This is the day the Lord has made...
By Diane Sato

"This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it!" Psalm 118:24... and that is exactly what our ECW breakfast gathering was all about!  The women rejoiced in a lovely setting on the lanai of the Courtyard Marriott with a delicious buffet breakfast, sharing stories and having fun with games and learning more about each other. It was a day filled with blessings and thanksgiving, with special thanks to Dee Grigsby for coordinating a most memorable event.
