September Saturday Market & Swap Meet: Food Fest!

This month's theme is all about food, and we are inviting food vendors to participate for FREE!  It's a great way for vendors to share their fare with the community, especially new businesses who would like to get the word out and show folks what you have! All food vendors are welcome that may include food trucks, bakers, shave ice, coffee vendors, and any others offering up delectable delights! 

Of course our regular group of talented crafters, service and swap meet vendors will be on hand, along with E-Waste collection, so get ready to indulge is some great food fare, find some wonderful items or a bargain or two, and then relax with an incredible step massage under the cool shade of our tree deck!

Remember that non-profit organizations, including youth sports teams, always participate for free, and can include a car wash, bake sale, food booth and informational displays.  Space is limited, so apply early!

Celebrating Our Holy Sovereigns

All Saints' has been celebrating our Holy Sovereigns, King Kamehameha IV & Queen Emma, for the past several years during the month of October.  Although the actual feast day is in November, it has become a tradition at All Saints' to hold it on the second Sunday of October, and this year it will be on October 11.  Save the date and be sure to attend this beautiful service and reception afterwards.

Mahalo Elaine!

Pictured above, our resident lei maker, Aunty Elaine Tamura, tries to hide from the limelight in the safety of Joe Adorno's arms, during Fr. Wil's aloha speech this past Sunday. Fr. Wil was thanking Elaine for the beautiful lei she received. 

As some know, Elaine has been providing the lovely fresh flower leis that adorn our priests every Sunday for decades, including special guests and choir members on certain occasions. It's a labor of love-- her incredible ministry to the church-- creating stunning leis with flowers grown in her back yard, and never accepting a penny for these beautiful creations. 

Even during challenging times when faced with debilitating health issues, Elaine makes sure there is a lei for the priest to be worn on Sunday. The Ohai Ali'i flowers are especially difficult to sew with its fragile blossoms and tiny stems, and require a specially crafted needle. Daughter Faith Shiramizu helps her to collect the various flowers that are carefully sorted and stored.

Mahalo nui loa Elaine for blessing us with your lovely leis, generous heart and beautiful smile!
Aloha Fr. Wil!

The Rev. Wil Gafney heads back to Texas this week after spending the past two months on Kaua'i in the rectory cottage.  Fr. Wil, as she prefers to be called) has been visiting regularly with the All Saints' 'ohana for the past several years, taking a break from her work.  She is currently an Associate Professor at Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth.  Pictured above, Fr. Wil thanks the congregation after the 9:30 service this past Sunday.  Safe travels Fr. Wil!  Aloha 'oe... until we meet again!

Proper 18
Grant us, O Lord, to trust in you with all our hearts; for, as
you always resist the proud who confide in their own strength,
so you never forsake those who make their boast of your
mercy; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
