WELCOME FR. JOHN AND KATHLEEN SAVILLE
Please extend a warm welcome to our new interim rector, the Rev. John Saville, and his wife, Kathleen. The Savilles will be with us from June 16 th through September 29 th . Their permanent residence is in the Diocese of Los Angeles but they already have a connection to Kaua`i. Fr. John and Kathleen visited All Saints’ last fall while Fr. John was the supply priest at the Episcopal Church on West Kaua`i and they returned to ECWK for the months of March and April of 2019. We look forward to the Saville’s joining our church ‘Ohana.
MAHALO AND A HUI HOU FR. DAVID & SUSAN
A note from Fr. David and Susan:
To Our Church Family at All Saints, Kapa’a,

Susan and I wish to once again express our love and thanks to all of you. Little did we know what we would find when we agreed to come here to supply. We expected a temporary job in a beautiful place, but what we found was a wonderful church family that was even more beautiful than the island. You have been gracious to us in many ways, and our hearts will always contain a special place for this parish family. I have been a little “in your face” about reading the scriptures and prayer. I do not apologize for that in any way. All Saints is a strong church, but all churches need to be grounded in Scripture and Prayer to thrive. Prayer is especially important at this time of transition in your parish life. I pray with you that God the Holy Spirit will lead you to find the right person to be your next priest and pastor. We have enjoyed great worship during these ten weeks. I want to thank all who have participated in this – the Altar Guild, the Acolytes, the Lay Eucharistic Ministers, the Choir and Hank, the Ushers, and the Prayer Teams. Truly God has blessed us with his presence. In closing, I remind you that Jesus Christ is risen, he is Lord and King over all, and he has called us to be his people and follow him. Bless the Lord!

Mahalo

Father David and Susan
Aloha and Bon Voyage
Last Sunday All Saints' bid a very fond farewell to Fr. David and Susan Englund. Our worship service was made unforgettable by a musical salute to the Holy Spirit presented by David, Susan, Hank, and the All Saints' Choir. Please follow the video link below to enjoy that special moment.
The Englunds took the time to deliver special messages to the All Saints' `Ohana. Please enjoy their kind words by following the video link below.
Ever faithful to tradition, All Saints' said goodbye with a massive amount of food and drink. A great time was had by all.
We will miss you both, David and Susan. Please come back soon and often. You always have a home in Kapa`a.

Mahalo nui loa and godspeed.
Mary Wilson
Rest eternal grant to her, O Lord:
And let light perpetual shine upon her.
We are very sorry to share the news with you that long time member of our church 'ohana and dear friend, Mary Wilson, passed away on Monday, June 10 th .  Please join us in praying for Mary's family and all who mourn her passing.

There will be a celebration of Mary's life at a later date.

Ke Akua pu me 'oukou,

David Murray
Senior Warden
Grant us grace to entrust Mary to thy never-failing love; receive
her into the arms of thy mercy, and remember her according
to the favor which thou bearest unto thy people. Amen.

THANK YOU, MARIAN!
Did you notice the beautiful red lei that graced our pews for Pentecost Sunday? They were crocheted by our dedicated parishioner, Marian (Kurasaki) Kubota. Marian crocheted all 25 red eyelash yarn lei to decorate the pews during Pentecost. Raised on Kaua`i, Marian became a member of All Saints' as a child. She now splits her time between St. Mary's in LA where she is a resident, and All Saints'. While Marian is here she sings in our choir, participates in her daughter Carolyn Morinishi's Japanese dance class performances, teaches the class participants to sew their own yukata and happy coates, helps with the kāhili project, and now crochets for us! Mahalo nui loa, Marian, for all you do for All Saints'.
Prayer for the Search Committee


Almighty God, look graciously on the people of All Saints’.

Be with our Search Committee and guide them as they lead this phase of our search for the next rector for our church.

Grant them perception, faithfulness and joy, so that they may hear your voice in all their deliberations.

Grant them also the desire and the ability to truly hear each other and those who have entrusted them with this process.

Give them courage to respond and act as you lead them.

We ask for your direction and guidance to be present at all times in our search process.

Come Holy Spirit.

We pray this through Jesus Christ our Lord.

KĀHILI ADORN KAMEHAMEHA DAY FESTIVITIES
Kamehameha kahili
Photo: Carolyn Morinishi

The beautiful red kāhili that have graced our sanctuary for the past few months held a place of honor in the King Kamehameha Day celebration last week. Ron and Carolyn Morinishi and Mabel Antonio attended the King Kamehameha Day celebration last Saturday and were thrilled to see the kāhili that had been on loan to All Saints' in the procession.
Work continues on the All Saints' kāhili. Last Sunday we taped the branches and this week we hope to finish taping and assembling the branches. We will meet Sunday, June 16 th from 9:00 - 10:00AM in the gym and again at 10:30AM in Memorial Hall.
The remaining project tasks are:

  • Finish braising the rest of the branch wires
  • Finish wrapping the branches with tape
  • Finish assembling the branches
  • Assemble kāhili
  • Celebrate!!

Please stop by to lend a hand, see the work that has been accomplished, or just talk story about kāhili and their place in our sanctuary.

Four Years of Clean Laundry, Compassion, and Fellowship!
This month we celebrate the 4 th anniversary of the Laundry Love program. On the 1 st and 3 rd Wednesdays for each of the past 48 months volunteers from All Saints' Church have led this successful outreach program bringing laundry services to the homeless, working families, visitors, and others.

Each session we wash, dry, and fold approximately 80 loads of laundry at a cost of approximately $400 per session. Over the past 4 years that adds up to 7,680 loads of laundry at a cost of $38,400 - which does NOT include the cost of laundry detergent pods, dryer sheets and other supplies. We are fortunate that these supplies many times just "magically appear" as donations from our Laundry Love volunteers and others.

As we begin our 5 th year of this outreach program we are being more intentional in our asking. We are requesting our All Saints' 'Ohana and the wider community to help us to continue this outreach program with financial donations, and donations of supplies and/or time.

If you would like to donate supplies please check out the following suggestions:
Laundry pods
Dryer sheets
Large, black plastic trash bags

If you would like to donate your time please contact the church office at 822-4267.

If you would like to make a financial donation please go to our website, allsaintskauai.org
Toiletries Donations a Popular Part of Laundry Love Ministry

Personal sized toiletries donated by the All Saints’ `Ohana have been made available to our Laundry Love Patrons for the past several months. They have been gratefully received and much appreciated. Due to the enthusiastic reception, our stock is running low. Please remember to bring any hotel/travel sized toiletries you may have to donate and put them in the basket by the Hale Ho`omalu red wagon on any Sunday.
EPISCOPAL CHURCH GOVERNANCE
"Take Me To Your Leader!"
"Who's That?"
Recently, I was engaged in a lively discussion of the Episcopal Church and its Leadership. You know the conversation. 

“Did you hear what they are going to do?”
“Don’t worry about them . I think they are doing fine.”
“Yah well, they don’t get it.”
“Do you ever talk to them ?”
“Who are they ?”

This last question really got me thinking. Who are “ They ”?
This week we will focus on The Executive Council , that part of Church Governance that is responsible for carrying out programs and policies adopted by General Convention and overseeing the ministry and mission of The Episcopal Church.
The Executive Council of The Episcopal Church is an elected body representing the whole church. In the three years between meetings of the General Convention, the Executive Council meets quarterly. The Executive Council has the duty to carry out programs and policies adopted by General Convention and to oversee the ministry and mission of The Episcopal Church. The Executive Council is comprised of twenty members elected by General Convention (four bishops, four priests or deacons, and twelve lay leaders) and eighteen members elected by Episcopal provinces.

You can follow the link below to get a list of all current Executive Council members.
President of the House of Deputies Gay Clark Jennings
The following is an excerpt from the opening remarks of President of the House of Deputies Gay Clark Jennings at the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church, currently meeting through June 13 at the Conference Center at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum Heights, Maryland.

Executive Council

June 10, 2019

Opening Remarks

Good morning. Welcome, once again, to the Maritime Center. I’m looking forward to our meeting, and I particularly want to welcome our guests Dr. Ursuline Bankhead, who will lead our implicit bias training this afternoon, and Dr. Mathew Sheep, who we will hear from later in this session.

Last week, I had the opportunity to join the staff of the Episcopal Church Center for its in-house meeting. I enjoyed the chance, as always, to spend time with the dedicated people who help implement the work of General Convention and Executive Council, and I was glad to talk with them about why their work is essential to the mission of the church.

When I met with the staff, I reflected on the 75th anniversary of D-Day, which we observed last Thursday. On D-Day, Allied troops landed on the beaches at Normandy, beginning the liberation of France that led to victory on the European front of World War II. This milestone—the last significant anniversary on which we will have D-Day veterans among us—has been memorialized with a new round of articles and documentaries and exhibits and even the re-release of the epic 1998 film “Saving Private Ryan.”

The anniversary has given us much to reflect on: about peacemaking and just war, about xenophobia and genocide, about imperialism and global alliances, about our relationship with Great Britain and other European allies. But the reason it’s on my mind now is that I believe it provides us with an opportunity to consider the role of institutional structures in changing the world.

Now, let me hasten to say that I am not a warmonger, nor do I have a rose-colored understanding of America’s imperial past—or present. The glorification of battlefield sacrifice and the version of masculinity that it has promoted are deeply problematic for Christians and other humans.

But I am fascinated by the fact that, 75 years on, we are captivated by the soaring rhetoric of the Allied leaders, by Churchill’s speeches and Roosevelt’s Fireside Chats, and by the vast logistical and operational undertaking of landing 156,000 troops on the beaches at Normandy. At the same time, however, we are deeply suspicious of the kind of institutional structures that made it possible.

As we glorify Private Ryan and his comrades, we proclaim that we live in a post-institutional age. We do not want hierarchies, we want networks. We seek to flatten structures and decentralize power. In the church, every three years, we go to General Convention to debate the budget, and we hear about how we should be funding mission, not governance and institutional structures. As though the mission happens by magic.

If we intend to be the Jesus Movement—and we do!—we have to focus on how we are actually going to move. We have to remember that governance is mission, just the same as programs that more commonly get defined that way. General Convention’s commitments to creation care, racial reconciliation and evangelism would mean very little without the governing structures of the church that help make them happen.
So, what does all this mean for you?  

You have a direct line to Episcopal Church Leadership.

You may even know a member of the Executive Council. Please learn who represents you on the Executive Council and get to know them. Talk story and let them know what's important to you.

Better yet, run for a seat on the Executive Council. You could be selected to represent our Province. That will give you a seat right at the table.

Please take advantage of the opportunity to be a part of the governance of our church. Volunteer to be a delegate to the Diocesan Convention and consider running for a seat on the executive Council.
 
I hope this information is helpful the next time someone says, “Take me to your leader”. 

If you have any questions about Leadership at our Parish, please feel free to contact Bill Caldwell , David Murray , Mary Margaret Smith , or any member of the Vestry.

Presiding Bishop Releases Video Message for World Refugee Day

Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs
Posted Jun 13, 2019
When we welcome the stranger, we welcome the Lord God himself.
“When we welcome the stranger, we welcome the Lord God himself. We welcome Jesus,” commented Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry in his 2019 World Refugee Day Message. “On World Refugee Day, pray, learn about refugees, learn about what you can do, and do whatever you can to help the strangers in our midst.”

The Presiding Bishop’s video message can be found  here .

On World Refugee Day, held each year on June 20, we honor and celebrate the courage, strength, and resilience of refugees worldwide. This day is an opportunity to show support to the 68 million people around the world who are refugees or internally displaced because of conflict or persecution.

Episcopal Migration Ministries is a ministry of The Episcopal Church and is one of nine national agencies responsible for resettling refugees in the United States in partnership with the government. Episcopal Migration Ministries currently has 13 resettlement affiliates in 11 dioceses.

MESSAGE FROM BISHOP FITZPATRICK
Please Do Not Support Operation Christmas Child
It has been suggested to me that some of our congregations have, in the past, taken collections for an organization called “Samaritan’s Purse” of which Mr. Franklin Graham is the CEO and President. This group’s project called “Operation Christmas Child” in which shoeboxes are packed for distribution to children seems to be the object of some activity in some of our congregations. 
 
As your Bishop, I ask that you not support “Samaritan’s Purse” and, therefore, “Operation Christmas Child.” Why? First, several of Mr. Graham’s statements stand in contradiction to the Episcopal Church’s teaching. Particularly, his statements about the LGBT community fail to “respect the dignity of every human being.” No Episcopal Church in this Diocese should be associated with an organization headed by someone with such opinions. Second, I am convinced that the giving of such boxes specifically is inappropriate and not helpful. Rather than detail here why, I encourage you to read the following: 
 
 
 
 
I would encourage all our congregations to support and find ways to share in the mission of Episcopal Relief & Development .
 
As you plan for the upcoming program year (particularly looking to Christmas), please no boxes or collections for “Operation Christmas Child.” Perhaps we can all collect for ERD’s Gifts for Life instead. Let’s make a lasting difference in children’s lives.
 
Yours faithfully,
+Bob
 
The Right Reverend Robert L. Fitzpatrick
The Spirit of Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin
The Catholic Worker and Wallyhouse Open at St. Elizabeth's

By Sybil Nishioka, Editor
[August-October 2018 E-Chronicle]  Nestled in the heart of downtown Honolulu, where luxury condos meet poverty and homeless encampments head on in a clash of lifestyles, sits St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church. The distinctive white building stands as a beacon to those struggling with life in the surrounding community.
Fr. David Gierlach has served as its Rector since 2009, and during this time, he has witnessed the ever-shifting population of immigrants, the disparity between wealth and poverty, the exploding number of homeless, and the unending battle to help those in need. But it hasn't stopped him and his incredible team of associates and dedicated congregants to tackle some of the toughest societal issues facing Hawai'i.  

They organize marches to the State Capitol and are active in organizations to advocate affordable housing for all and medical care for immigrants; they feed, tutor and create a host of programs for inner-city youth; run a food pantry, do laundry and house homeless in their parking lot; and they shape their Sunday services to include the bold and beautiful voices of multicultural worship. The list goes on and on, and it's no wonder that this congregation is one of the most vibrant and diverse in the Diocese.

If that wasn't enough, Fr. David recently stretched their outstretched arms even more, by putting out a call in the Franciscan community for a possible   Catholic Worker  earlier this year. What is the Catholic Worker? The Catholic Worker is a movement founded in 1933, by Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin, involving a lifestyle of voluntary poverty and a commitment to nurturing "the poor in body, mind and spirit, non-violent resistance of oppression, and practicing radical acts of kindness." There are over 200 Catholic Worker "communities" throughout the world.

So it was in January of 2018, that David Catron and barbara bennett (intentional lower case), found their way to St. Elizabeth's. Both are members of the  Third Order of the Society of St. Francis . Over the next few months of prayerful discernment, a string of unexpected occurrences, and lots of elbow grease, their ministry began to take shape. With the help of volunteers and generous hearts, the dilapidated rectory was transformed, and on July 8, 2018, Wallyhouse opened and was formally dedicated as a Catholic Worker home. 
David Catron and barbara bennett

Their story and the creation of Wallyhouse is so divinely inspired and filled with God's grace, that you must read their first issue of the Wallyhouse News that explains it all. Yes, Wally is a real person (Wally Inglis, Chair of the Hawaii Coalition for Creative Housing) whose dream was to have a Catholic Worker in the islands, and David and barbara are now fulfilling this dream on the grounds of St. Elizabeth's. (Click  HERE    to read their inaugural news issue.) Pictured below from left is the revitalized rectory turned Wallyhouse; Wally Inglis stands second from left at the dedication ceremony, and at far right, Fr. David Gierlach blesses and dedicates the building.
Today, David and barbara provide laundry service for the houseless community (thanks to grants received from the Diocese to cover the cost of a new commercial washer and dryer), run the church food bank, distribute mail to those who use the church address, serve a free tasty lunch every Tuesday to a grateful (and growing) crowd, opened up Artfelt, an art studio for the houseless and at-risk youth, provide device charging, and of course, offer prayer and care for all who come to their doorstep. If this sounds like a lot accomplished in a few short months, it is... but it is just the beginning. There are already plans for a vegetable garden, private shower facilities, and a sewing workshop! One can only guess what will take shape next year!  

David and barbara welcome volunteers and donations are always needed, including items such as toiletries, diapers, snack food, art supplies, laundry soap (pods), towels, trash bags, new underwear, and simple can openers. You can reach David and barbara at (808) 535-5677, or by   e-mail .
TRINITY SUNDAY
June 16, 2019
Trinity Sunday is the feast that celebrates "the one and equal glory" of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, "in Trinity of Persons and in Unity of Being" ( Book of Common Prayer , p. 380). It is celebrated on the first Sunday after Pentecost. Trinity Sunday is one of the seven principal feasts of the church year ( Book of Common Prayer , p. 15). The proper readings and collect for Trinity Sunday are used only on the feast, not on the weekdays following. The numbered proper which corresponds most closely to the date of Trinity Sunday is used ( Book of Common Prayer , p. 228). The Book of Common Prayer also provides the proper "Of the Holy Trinity" for optional use at other times, subject to the rules of the calendar of the church year (see Book of Common Prayer , pp. 251, 927). The Hymnal 1982 presents ten hymns in a section on The Holy Trinity (Hymns 362-371), including "Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!" (Hymn 362), "Come, thou almighty King" (Hymn 365), and "Holy Father, great Creator" (Hymn 368).

Celebration of Trinity Sunday was approved for the western church by Pope John XXII in 1334. This feast is associated with Thomas Becket (c. 1118-1170), who was consecrated bishop on Trinity Sunday, 1162. His martyrdom may have influenced the popularity of the feast in England and the custom of naming the remaining Sundays of the church year "Sundays after Trinity." The Sarum Missal and editions of the Prayer Book through the 1928 Book of Common Prayer named these Sundays the Sundays after Trinity. The 1979 Book of Common Prayer identifies this portion of the church year as the season after Pentecost, and names these Sundays the Sundays after Pentecost (see Book of Common Prayer, p. 32).

FROM THE EPISCOPAL CAFÉ
Freedom
Posted June 13, 2019
As I was watching a hummingbird at our feeder this morning (heart-piercingly vulnerable – her tiny throat moving out and in as she swallowed) I experienced one of those moments of stepping outside myself. There I was, a huge mammal, sitting behind glass at a desk – and there she was, a tiny broadtail, free to fly around in the world, eating a breakfast provided for her without cost. Surely she had found a use for my opposable thumbs.
 
My worries uncoiled like a spool of movie film and fell lifeless at my feet. I wondered what had given them the power to flicker before my vision in an endless stream, generating a huge weight of useless emotion about what might happen if I didn’t shape up.
 
There was the Holy, right there in the connection between human and bird, between bird and world, between me and world. There was Christ, the incarnate God – there was Jesus – his enfolding love – freedom.
 
In Second Corinthians Paul speaks a mystical truth. “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And all of us, with unveiled faces, seeing the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord, the Spirit.” (2 Corinthians 3:17-18)
 
In the way we run our lives have we, I wondered, substituted the work ethic for the Hebrew law? Now we don’t care so much about whether we eat shellfish or not, but heaven help us if we arrive at the job late or don’t get the assignment done. Heaven help us if we neglect the laundry or don’t budget our money properly.
 
Whimsically I considered what it would be like to proclaim that Jesus had come to fulfill the Protestant Work Ethic instead of saying he had come to fulfill the Law. Strangely, the thought brought relief and happiness. What is our work and the stewardship of our resources for if not to bring love, wholeness and well being into our lives and the lives of those for whom we care? But Christ is the source of all those things, the fulfillment of them.
 
At the very least, time for contemplative prayer ought to head our list of important things to do every day. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

SUNDAY SCHOOL THIS WEEK
A Perfect Father’s Day
On Sunday, June 16 th , many people will celebrate Father’s Day. Through the use of a children’s picture book, this lesson helps connect the celebration of Father’s Day and the love we may receive from our fathers to the unconditional and sacrificial love we all receive from God our father. The use of this delightful story about how a little girl honors her dad on Father’s Day helps children to consider God’s sacrifice of his son for our sins in a very age appropriate and easy to comprehend kind of way. 

Children will consider the great sacrifice God made for us, how he loves each of us unconditionally and how we can attempt to love others in this same way after listening to a children’s book about a father who puts his daughter’s pleasure before his own on Father’s Day.
