Be it resolved, the Vestry of All Saints’ Episcopal Church and Preschool, authorize the commencement of a capital campaign project to reconstruct All Saints’ pipe organ and to make the appropriate modifications to the sanctuary and both sacristies to accommodate the new organ and auxiliary workspace for the worship ministries.
Aloha o ke Akua,
Since its founding in 1924 as Kaua‘i’s first Episcopal mission, All Saints’ has been a “spiritual center” for the people of Kaua‘i. Reminiscent of Europe’s religious landscape when small towns encircled a bustling cathedral, All Saints’ thrives on Kaua‘i as a center for worship, education, outreach, and the arts.
By nature, cathedrals are bold and big with spires reaching high into the heavens and magnificent architectural details seeking to testify to the grandeur of God and God’s Church. At All Saints’, it is not our church building that is big and bold—it is our vision in action that we hope will leave an indelible mark on individuals, families, and the community.
Nearly a century ago, The Reverend Henry Willey and All Saints’ founding families courageously took on the challenge to build Kaua‘i’s first Episcopal ministry center. Our community of faith was born from tremendous generosity, unwavering commitment, and selfless sacrifice.
Today, we are the generation entrusted to launch All Saints’ second century of ministry. We are the individuals and families blessed with the opportunity to strengthen All Saints’ witness of God’s love to future generations of faithful people. With greater opportunity comes greater responsibility. We are called to be even more generous, committed, and selfless than All Saints’ founders and visionaries if we are to achieve our vision to be a cathedral for the people of Kaua‘i.
The project to reconstruct and enlarge Kaua‘i’s only pipe organ is not just about preserving history—it is about shaping the building blocks for another century of transformational ministry through worship, education, outreach, and the arts. We are not only building pipes and sounds—we are constructing the Kingdom of God. The legacy we leave to future generations is more than just music—we offer to our keiki and our keiki’s keiki a pathway to the Divine through the grandest, boldest, and most innovative instrument ever invented by human hands.
We hope you will join us on this extraordinary journey through your support.
Ho‘onani i Ka Makua Mau,

Geologically the oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands, Kaua‘i is known as the Garden Island and is home to Mt. Wai‘ale‘ale, statistically known as “the wettest place on Earth.”
History of the Church
The Episcopal Church in Hawai‘i was chartered in 1862, under the laws of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i, after King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma invited the Church of England to Hawai‘i. The King and Queen supported the Church’s presence throughout the islands with gifts of land, which includes the land that All Saints’ calls home.
As a Church in the Episcopal Diocese of Hawai‘i, All Saints’ is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, which joins together over 70 million members in 163 countries. All Saints’ was founded as Kaua‘i’s first mission of the Episcopal Church in 1924 at Kealia, four miles north of Kapa‘a. The mission moved to its present campus in 1925.
The Episcopal Church is rooted in the historic teachings of Jesus Christ and nourished by thoughtful engagement with the Christian Holy Scriptures. Worship, grounded in the Book of Common Prayer, is at the heart of who we are as a community of faith and seeks to honor the values of tradition, inclusivity, and transformation.
