While a sumptuous dinner is being served, there’s an exciting Silent Auction going on. All of a sudden, an intriguing mystery needs to be solved!
Join in the fun and support two great causes: St Michael’s community ministries and HUGS, an organization dedicated to helping local families with seriously ill children. St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church is partnering with HUGS to help Kauai families. HUGS (Help, Understanding & Group Support) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving a family’s quality of life as they face the emotional and financial hardship of caring for a seriously ill child. St. Michael’s Gala will feature well-known local entertainment, including celebrity musicians Monica Chung and Deb Baumung. While you enjoy your dinner, some of Kauai’s finest actors will perform “Murder at Kilohana,” a comedy melodrama written by Wil Welsh & Igor Wolosenko and directed by Dottie Bekeart.Music, mystery theater, fine dining and endless fun is yours starting at $120.00/person.

Thank you for your support.
All Angels give HUGS!
Adult Formation

This week we conclude our study of “How the Bible Came to Be,” looking at the construction and nature of the Bible and how it reached its present form. Next week, we will explore our Eucharistic Prayers that we use for the consecration of the bread and wine during our worship services. Where did they come from? How are they the same? Different? How do we select the one’s that we use during the seasons of our liturgical year? To find out, and ask any questions or curiosities that you might have, please join us Sunday morning, 8:30am, in our conference room!
Saturday Worship
Please note that there will be no worship services on the next two Saturdays – October 20 and 27! Father Andrew will be away at Diocesan Council on the 20th and the Annual Meeting of the Diocese of Hawaii on the 27th. We apologize for any inconvenience or frustration that these cancellations might cause our faithful Saturday attendees, but there will be times during the year that we will need to make these adjustments to our usual worship schedule.

Celebration of New Ministry
However, the news is not all bad for our Saturday folks! In recognition that Father Andrew is the fourth Rector of our parish, The Rt. Rev. Robert Fitzpatrick will lead our worship and celebrate Holy Eucharist on Saturday, November 3, at 4pm. A reception will follow the service. Please note that we will not have a 5:30pm liturgy on that Saturday. We hope everyone will join us for this festive time!
2019 Stewardship Drive
It is once again time in our common life that we begin the necessary pledge drive for the financial support of St. Michael and All Angels. Members of the parish will receive a letter from Father Andrew as well as 2019 Pledge Card and mailing envelope. Pledge cards and envelopes are also available on the back table in the church.
There is no escaping the reality that our parish home, and all that we do in this place and in our community, cannot exist without our financial commitment to support it. It is our goal that every member of the parish will fill out a pledge card and that we will join together in the proclamation of our faith. Pledge cards should be sealed in an envelope (to maintain confidentiality) and can be placed either in the alms bowl during worship or delivered/mailed to the parish office. On November 18, we will come together for one service to bless all of our pledges; a celebration brunch will follow in our parish hall. Please do not hesitate to contact Father Andrew if you have any questions or wish to further discuss our parish stewardship drive.
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, Rebecca
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!
