Today is Palm Sunday

Today we celebrate Jesus' joyous and triumphant entry into Jerusalem.  At the beginning of our worship, we will bless and distribute palms to live into this moment in Christ's journey.  We will celebrate Holy Eucharist as is our custom and tradition.  At the conclusion of the service, we mark the beginning of Holy Week with the reading of Matthew's account of the Passion.  On this day, there is no blessing and dismissal; the reading concludes our worship.  In addition, as enter into this holy time, there is no fellowship hour or reception following each service.  All are invited to depart the church in silence, prayer and reflection.

Holy Week and Easter Services

All are encouraged to join us for worship as we live into the final days of Jesus, his crucifixion and resurrection.  These are the days that are foundational to the discovery of our identity, the nature and shape of our faith and the illumination of our love and hope.  It is through the living of this journey that the true meaning, and cost, of Easter are revealed.  We hope you will accept this invitation and join us for all our worship during this holy time!

Regional Confirmation

Confirmation is a Sacramental Rite within the Church which allows for the proclamation of a mature commitment to Christ, and a reception of the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by the Bishop. The Rt. Rev. Robert Fitzpatrick will be on Kauai and laying on hands of those candidates seeking Confirmation on Saturday, May 13, 2017, 11am at ECWK. All those contemplating or seeking Confirmation are invited to contact Father Andrew.

Extending Aloha to Our Friends and Visitors During 
Holy Week
Holy Week is a wonderful time to extend aloha to our friends and visitors and invite them to worship with us. Father Andrew would like us to deliver flyers to the major resorts on the island inviting everyone to participate in the traditions of Holy Week. If you are able to deliver flyers to North shore, East side, South shore and West side, please see Melissa for the flyers and list of resorts after the service. Flyers will also be available in the office during regular office hours.

A meaningful and beautiful way to honor loved ones during Easter is to offer a Easter Lily at St. Michael's. Please use the envelopes provided on the Information Table in the back of the church. Lily donations are $25.00 for each plant. Your loved one's name and dedication will be included in our Easter service bulletin. The deadline is Sunday, April 2, 2017.
