Episcopal Youth meet near Philadelphia

Episcopal Youth meet near Philadelphia

The Episcopal Youth Event has begun. With a backdrop of a quilt made by HIV positive women in Nigeria – youth have gathered from all over the Episcopal Church to worship, study, sing, and dance:

Almost 1000 youth along with more than 200 adults are gathering for the popular Episcopal Youth Event 2014 (EYE14), July 9-13 at Villanova University in suburban Philadelphia, PA.

Youth in grades 9-12 during the 2013-2014 academic year and their adult leaders will hail from 84 dioceses, including international friends from the Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic, Honduras and Taiwan.

Bronwyn Clark Skov, Episcopal Church Youth Ministries Officer, noted: “EYE14 is an amazing opportunity for youth to experience The Episcopal Church on a vastly different scale than that of their local faith communities. They will be immersed in music, scripture, worship, and fellowship as they discern their own call to engage in the Five Marks of Mission.”

The Collect for EYE14

Ever loving God, you have brought us together and empowered us to serve as your disciples. We ask you to guide and bless us as we strive to tell the Good News of your love; teach and nurture all believers; tend to the human condition; transform and reconcile the world as Christ has shown us; and treasure your creation and our salvation through Jesus Christ. May we be engulfed in your love and blessings as we live out the mission and work you have given us, through Jesus Christ, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
