Welcoming You with the Spirit of Aloha!

"You go out to my people as God's messengers...Our beloved Church regards her children as having bodies as well as souls to be cared for, and sanctions the consecration of these and of all that is beautiful in nature and in art to the service of God" 

-- Queen Emma
Weekly Announcements
Rally Day Follow-up

We are encouraged that so many of our parishioners participated in Rally Day and have committed themselves to our various ministries. If you missed it, or are continuing to give prayer and thought as to how you might bless St. Michael’s with your support, it’s not too late! The sign-up sheets are in our parish hall. Please feel free to volunteer and sign up for any of our ministries (even if you are already participating in it!). Following our fellowship hour on Sunday, September 23, we will take down the sheets and prepare our ministry roster. Have questions? Do not hesitate to contact Father Andrew or Loretta in our parish office.
The Feast of St. Michael and All Angels
Since the observance of this feast day falls on Saturday, September 29, we will celebrate it as part of our weekend worship during each service. We hope you will join us on “our” feast day as we give thanks for our unique identity as St. Michael’s in this place and all the blessings we have received in this parish!

As is our tradition, we welcome your angel food cake creations and chicken wings! We hope you will join us after our 9:45am worship service to celebrate!
Adult Formation
This week, we begin a four-week series – “How the Bible Came to Be.” We will explore the Old and New Testaments, looking at the various “books” in each and how/when/why they were included as well as writings that were omitted before the Bible took on its present form. We hope you will join us Sunday, at 8:30am in the Goodale Conference Room!
Please keep the following people in your prayers this week:

Charlotte, Bill, Sue, Don, Marvin, Pamela, Gertrudis, Al, Cathy, Ezra, Dora, Kelley, Gene, Cindy, Bob, Pat, Landon, Patricia, Walter, Karen, Christie, Kalani, Joe
Responding to Hurricane Florence
The Bishop urges all Episcopalians in the Diocese of Hawaiʻi to respond to the needs of those impacted by Hurricane Florence by sending donations directly to Episcopal Relief and Development’s Hurricane Relief Fund, and to be sure to keep all those impacted and responding in our personal and corporate prayers. 
You can immediately make a donation to the Episcopal Relief and Development’s Hurricane Relief Fund and help people recover. Your donation will help meet urgent needs after Hurricane Florence and other storms by providing critical supplies such as food, water and other basics and offering long-term assistance as needed.
Mail Donations to:

Episcopal Relief & Development
P.O. Box 7058
Merrifield, VA 22116-7058

Phone Donations:
Additionally, please pray for those impacted by Typhoon Mangkhut (called Ompong in the Philippines). Because of the historic connections and direct continuing family links to the areas of the Philippines most impacted by the storm, we are designating the weekend of September 29/30 for a special collection. Checks should be made payable to “St. Michael and All Angels” with “Typhoon Ompong Relief” noted in the memo. If members want to make individual donations toward this emerging effort, checks (again with “Typhoon Ompong Relief” noted in the memo) may be sent to:

The Episcopal Church in Hawaiʻi
Attn: Typhoon Ompong Relief
229 Queen Emma Square
Honolulu, HI 96813-2304
Over the past week or so, the Finance Committee, the Property Committee, and our Vestry have held their monthly meetings. Below are some highlights of each meeting. For a full list of meeting notes, please visit the Parish Office!
Finance Update
Preparations for the 2019 budget have begun. Letters to ministry leaders requesting their needs will go out in early October. The finance committee will start combining the numbers in early November.
Zone Renovation
Renovations are still underway in the Zone! We have had a couple of delays which is typical of any renovation! We are currently finalizing the details, such as needed drywall and waterlines, to finish the Zone project.
Our exciting Gala is quickly approaching. We are partnering with HUGS and are moving into the marketing phase to gather community interest in the event.
There was much discussion on the homeless population on campus. How to best guide our tenant concerns in conjunction with extending a place of sanctuary and aloha to those in need, were among the many items addressed.

Our calendar is filling up quickly, with our Stewardship Campaign beginning in October, the Craft Faire in November and our JazzFest in February! Stay tuned!
Jazz Fest 2019!
It's that time! We are starting to prepare for our 2019 Jazz Festival and are looking for airline miles to bring artists to Kauai. We need miles on airlines from the mainland and neighbor islands. Anyone willing to donate miles, please reach out to Alan. More to come!
Parish Delegates to Diocesan Convention
We are pleased to announce that Sue Burriss, Madeleine Hiraga-Nuccio, Sue Macklin, Maureen Nuccio-Hiraga and Brian Peterson have been appointed as lay delegates to represent St. Michael and All Angels during the Annual Diocesan Convention on October 25-27, 2018. We are grateful for their faithful willingness to serve this parish and please keep them in your prayers as the time of the convention approaches us!
