Relay for Life satellite coming

KAPA‘A — Ke Akua Youth Group of the All Saints Episcopal Church and Preschool is hosting a small satellite site for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life on Sept. 12 from 5 to 7 p.m. on the front lawn of the church in Kapa‘a.

“We are limiting our gathering to no more than 25 people on campus at any time by asking participants to RSVP,” said Dominique Cami Baldovino, the church’s administrator and youth minister. “We will be streaming the event to the main page of the church website to view virtually.”

Although the in-person gathering is limited, participants will be able to to enjoy luminaria that are available for purchase at the church. Keiki from the church will decorate the luminaria at the craft table and place them around the labyrinth. The luminaria will be lit at 6 p.m.

Luminaria are also available for donation at the church’s website,—epistles/ke-akua-youth-group-relay-for-life.

Once the luminaria are lit, a person from each team or household will be allowed to relay around the labyrinth one at time. This will allow everyone an opportunity to represent their team or family and still practice social distancing.

Spectators may find a space on the front lawn to sit, meditate, and watch the sunset behind the Sleeping Giant mountain against the meditation music that will be playing throughout the night. The church will also be open and available for private and quiet prayer.

For those who choose to sit in a car to watch the festivities, there is no need to RSVP.
