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

Start Your Morning with Us in:

Resource for Christian Spirituality
Please join us for centering prayer on Tuesday mornings from 8:00-9:00 am on the 2nd Floor, Suite B. In centering prayer, we sit in silence before God, making ourselves available to the Spirit's presence and action within us. Whether you're new to the practice or experienced, we welcome you. We begin with 20 minutes of centering prayer. Then we'll experience the scriptures coming alive through a guided process of reading and reflecting on a short scripture passage. We close the intercessory prayers for those close at heart. 
For questions contact Phyllis Meighen at 647-4346 or spirituality@stmichaels-kauai.org .

Priest in Charge Discernment Process
As required by the Bishop and the Priest-in-Charge model, the Vestry is in the process of discerning the future clergy leadership of the parish and whether to call Father Andrew to serve as the next Rector. Much is involved in this process - prayer, reflection, exploration of parish strengths and challenges as well as multiple conversations culminating in a Vestry Retreat in February, 2018. The Vestry is now inviting each member of St. Michael's to have a voice in this overall work by completing a parish questionnaire, copies of which can be found in the back of the church or in the parish office. It is hoped that everyone will make the time and effort to thoughtfully complete the questionnaire and return it to the parish office no later than February 15, 2018. All responses will be confidential and are for Vestry use only; once the overall process is complete, all the forms will be destroyed. The current timeline calls for the discernment process to be concluded in April, 2018, and updates will be provided during our Annual Meeting and as the work continues. During this time, please keep the Vestry and this parish in your prayers!!
Annual Meeting

As required by the Canons and By-laws of the Church, the Annual Meeting of St. Michael and All Angels will take place on Sunday, January 28. We will gather in our Parish Hall at 6pm for a reception with a catered meal to follow. More than an occasion to address our annual church business and affairs, this is meant to be a time of celebration and joy, giving thanks for all the love, friendships and blessings that we share in this parish. We are asking everyone to RSVP to Loretta in our parish office by January 17, 2018 so that we can make the appropriate arrangements for food, beverages, etc.  We will conclude the evening with dessert and address the meeting agenda that will include, among other things, the Priest-in-Charge report, Treasurer's report and submission of the 2018 Parish Budget, and the elections of Junior Warden, Vestry (three open spots for the class of 2021), and our Delegates to the Diocesan Convention (5 elected plus any alternates). Nominations are now open for these leadership positions in the parish. Any nominee must be at least 18 years old, a member of the parish for at least 6 months and should ideally have shown a full commitment to the life and ministries of St. Michael's. Nominations must be in writing, signed by the one nominating and should include a confirmation that the one nominated is aware of the nomination and is willing to serve. Any and all nominations must be received by Father Andrew in the parish office no later than January 17, 2018. Please do not hesitate to contact Father Andrew or Senior Warden Amy Null if you have any questions. We hope to see everyone there!!
