WORSHIP MINISTRIES

All Saints' to Host Training Kaua'i Congregations

On Saturday, June 3rd, All Saints' will host a training workshop for current and new Eucharistic Ministers and Eucharistic Visitors. Current EMs/EVs are required to renew their license every three years and our last training at All Saints' was in 2014.

The workshop will begin at 9:00AM. The Eucharistic Minister portion will conclude at 11:00AM. Eucharistic Visitors will be required to stay till 12:00PM for additional training.

What is a Eucharistic Minister?
Eucharistic Minister is a lay person authorized to administer the consecrated elements at a Celebration of Holy Eucharist. A Eucharistic Minister should normally act under the direction of the Member of the Clergy or other leader exercising oversight of the congregation or other community of faith. Ministers will be licensed in the Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii. Licenses are valid for three years.

What is a Eucharistic Visitor?
Eucharistic Visitor is a lay person authorized to take the consecrated elements in a timely manner following a Celebration of Holy Eucharist to congregants who, by reason of illness or infirmity, are unable to be present at the service. A Eucharistic Visitor should normally act under the direction of the Member of the Clergy or other leader exercising oversight of the congregation or other community of faith. Ministers will be licensed in the Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii. Licenses are valid for three years.

If you are interested in serving in either of these vital ministries and/or have any questions, please speak to Fr. Ryan. Current and new ministers, please register to participate.

VESTRY NEWS
Saturday Market and Swap Meet

All Saints' church will no longer be hosting the " Saturday Market and Swap Meet " which has been taking place on the 2nd Saturday of each month.  The event has been cancelled permanently.

The Market operated from November 2013 and the decision to cancel the event was taken after an unsuccessful call for new volunteers to share the responsibility for site coordination.

Vendors were informed of the decision in April and refunds are being sent to those vendors who had paid for space in advance.

The Christmas Craft Fair - usually held on the first Saturday in December - will continue to operate as usual.
PASTORAL REFLECTION FROM THE BISHOP
Reflections from the Bishop on "Presidential Executive Order Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty" and the "American Health Care Act"

On May 12, The Right Reverend Robert L. Fitzpatrick shared with the Diocese his pastoral reflection on some newsworthy items generated by President Trump and Congress. 

The Bishop writes, "T wo actions from Washington have left me with some theological musings about the Church's role in the public square."

THIS WEEK IN SUNDAY SCHOOL
Each week, The Epistle will highlight the upcoming Sunday School lesson from "Weaving God's Promises."
 
May 14: Special Mother's Day Lesson

This Sunday, we briefly shift away from the "Weaving God's Promises" Curriculum to focus on mom and those motherly figures in our lives. Our Sunday School teachers are planning a special activity to celebrate and honor those "moms" in our lives.

School School Teachers: Team "B."
