Memorial Service for Kent Frank
 A memorial service for Kent Frank will take place this Saturday, April 18, beginning at 2:00 PM, at All Saints' Church. Disposition of Kent's ashes will take place in the Columbarium immediately following the service, and is open to church members and close friends.  There will also be a reception on the lawn. We are kindly asking members to bring a dish to assist with the reception. 

Kent was born in Burbank, California, on October 14. 1959.  He is survived by his partner of 18 years, Joe Adorno, his parents, Arnold and Margaret, and his five siblings, Joe, Mary, Patricia, Kathleen and Maureen.  Kent worked his entire adult life in the grocery business, and most recently as a cashier with Costco on Kaua'i for the past six years. He loved gardening, especially growing orchids and tropical flowers.  

Joe asks that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to All Saints' in Kent's honor. 
Come on down this Saturday, April 18, for the Kauai Island Singers Showcase (KISS) Concert featuring our own Hank Curtis on piano, and a bevy of talented local musicians!  The concert is FREE and begins at 7:00 PM in the Church. For more information, view the flyer below under the community section.

Deadline Approaching
Submit Your 

There are five more letters to go for this year's Easter Wall Art Project which is based on the Stewardship's 2014-2015 campaign entitled "Beautiful".  A new letter is being revealed on the wall each Sunday until the final day of the Easter season on May 17, completing the word "BEAUTIFUL". 


It's not too late to submit photos although there are just a few more needed. Remember that the theme is "Beautiful" and what the beauty of God's Divine Love inspires and means to you... babies, pets, a special place, a lost loved one, an unforgettable moment in time captured in a photograph... You can learn more about the Stewardship's year-long campaign HERE


To submit photos, please be sure they are of good quality.  Most of the photos submitted in the initial campaign were not "usable" for this particular project.  They need to be sharp and of good resolution, at least 1MB in size, and for the background photos, at least 3 MB. E-mail your photos to Sybil Nishioka at halelani@hawaiiantel.net. The deadline to submit pictures is April 26.

Be a part of this year's wall art that will be enjoyed by everyone that steps through the doors of All Saints' over the next year.

Registration now open!
May Saturday Market: Celebrating our Moms!
Get ready! May's theme is all about our moms, and vendors have been asked to create wonderful gifts for the special women in our lives!

With last year's Mother's Day craft fair success by the Ke Akua Youth Group, we are expecting a record turnout for May's Saturday Market and Swap Meet! Although this year's event is under the market and not the youth group, the set-up will be similar.

Registration for vendors is now open and is quickly booking up. The special layout for this market will include limited space under the church's tent and covered lanai areas.  We expect to book up with 50+ vendors, so register early!  For more information, click on the flyer shown, or visit the webpage HERE.

'Aha Mele Concert on Saturday, May 17

The next 'Aha Mele Concert will be taking place on Saturday, May 17, from 4:00 - 5:00 PM.  This concert will feature the vocals of Morris Wise, and Hank Curtis on the piano.  The concert is part of an awareness campaign about Kauai's only true pipe organ, and what needs to be done in order to salvage it.  The concert is free, donations to the organ fund will be accepted.  Stay tuned for more details.
Organ Committee Seeks Members
All Saints' is officially establishing an Organ Committee to study the feasibility of rebuilding the organ and enhancing our worship space to accommodate first-class church music for decades to come. The committee will shepherd the project's vision, the parameters of the work, and the oversight of the work moving forward (if we proceed). Morris Wise has agreed to serve as the "convener" of the inaugural meeting of the Organ Committee which is scheduled for Sunday, April 26, from 11:30am - 1:00pm. 

Any member of our 'ohana is eligible to attend and serve on the committee. The organ project is not just about rebuilding a musical instrument and enhancing our worship environment, it is an opportunity to cultivate a legacy that will have a profound impact on future generations of our 'ohana. If you have any questions, please speak to Fr. Ryan.


April Special Collections for Hale Ho'omalu

During the month of April, the ladies of the ECW will be making a special collection of instant oatmeal (packets), peanut butter, jelly and crackers, 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. 
Confirmation, Reception & Reaffirmation into

If you or your child would like to participate in the program, please contact Fr. Ryan ASAP at (808) 822-4267, or by e-mail.  Fr.

Happy Birthday Fr. Ryan & Rev. Mary!

Double the blessings!  This past Sunday, All Saints' celebrated birthdays for both Fr. Ryan and Rev. Mary. Both were surprised that they were being recognized, since each only knew that they were doing a surprise blessing for the other!  Members gathered after the second service to enjoy a wonderful birthday potluck, cake, and fellowship in grand All Saints' style!!!

Saturday Markets Hits the Mark
All Saints' Angels Reaches Their Relay for Life Goal!

The All Saints' Saturday Market and Swap Meet continues to grow with over 30 booth spaces and several new vendors committing to the 6 and 12 month program. April's theme was all about Spring and gardening, and Bill Brown (shown above) "went to town" with a huge display of starter vegetables and herbs ready for planting.  Bill donated all proceeds towards the pipe organ fund, and left-overs were made available to members on Sunday.  New vendors included Step Massage, a unique service that a number of our own members took advantage of. They signed up for a full year, so be sure to come on down and get ready to relax after some serious shopping!

The Ke Akua Youth Group and ECW also held their final fundraiser of the year for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, with a rummage and bake sale. They raised nearly $1,000 at the market bringing their total so far to over $4,300, reaching their goal!  Many thanks to all of their hard work and to all the folks that support their efforts through luminaria sales and their fundraisers. The event takes place next weekend, April 25 & 26, at the Hanapepe Stadium, and all are invited to come visit their booth for fellowship and fun!

Next month's Saturday Market theme is all about Mother's Day that will likely be our largest Saturday Market to date. Last year, the youth group spearheaded a Mother's Day craft fair and it was a huge success!  This year, it will fall under Saturday Market, and we are preparing for a huge turnout with possibly 50+ vendors. Many of last year's vendors have already signed up, and Joshua Rego and the Arruda boys' baseball team will be holding a car wash and food booth fundraiser at the same time.  It's also e-Waste collection day, so plan to come on down, get some shopping done, enjoy great grinds, wash your car, bring your e-waste, and get a massage too!!! I think we've given one-stop shopping new meaning!!!

Honoring Our Palm Trees

Following the 9:30 AM service this past Sunday, April 12, Fr. Ryan held a liturgy around the six palm trees that flank Memorial Hall and the Church. The liturgy was held to honor the legacy that these trees have served, both as a symbol of welcome and aloha to all who have visited All Saints', and for the many memories that members have for these beloved trees.


The iconic graceful palms, that have reached their life expectancy and pose a safety concern, were removed this past week. Many noted how they were planted in threes, symbolic to the Trinity. It was a difficult and emotional fact to accept, especially for long-time members who have literally grown up with the trees.  Pictured above, members gather for the brief liturgy; a final shot of the six palms that have graced almost every photo of the Church; and the Tabura boys give one last hug.
