Building a True Episcopal Youth Community Episcopal Youth Community (EYC) is far more than one meeting a week. It encompasses the wide range of activities engaged in by our youth – including Acolytes, Mission Trips, Pilgrimage, outreach, Sunday evenings, Confirmation and more! Here are just a few of our offerings for youth.
Sunday morning Youth Hour continues this year in the Loft from 9:15-10:15 a.m. The Youth Hour is a time to dig deep through fun and formation. It offers an engaging program through learning the stories of our tradition, telling our own, and exploring how to make true-to-self decisions. All youth grades 6-12 are invited to join.
Sunday Youth Community (EYC)
Sunday night EYC returns on September 13th! EYC is offered every Sunday night from 5:00-7:00 p.m. At EYC, youth build community through outreach, fun, formation, and breaking bread.
Pilgrimage and Mission Trip
On alternating years, eligible youth have the opportunity to participate in either a service trip or a pilgrimage journey of spiritual significance. In summer 2015, our youth journeyed to Quebec for Pilgrimage.
Confirmation is a mature, public affirmation of one’s baptism. Students generally become eligible for confirmation during high school. Preparation for confirmation is offered in Lent, and confirmations take place during the annual visit of one of the bishops of the diocese.
Additional opportunities for fellowship and service occur throughout the year and include lock-ins, Diocesan events and outreach.
