It is with great joy that I present to you the official Episcopal Diocese of San Diego delegation to The Episcopal Youth Event taking place at the University of Maryland just outside of D.C. These thirteen students will join youth from all over the world for three days of worship and learning. A recent press release from the team planning The Episcopal Youth Event had this to say about the event this year.
“EYE23 is a fresh start and a time for returning after a season of being disconnected from one another,” said Canon Myra Garnes, officer for youth ministry. The last EYE was held in 2017; the COVID-19 pandemic prompted the cancellation of the event in 2020.
Students from All Souls, Christ Church, St. Bartholomew’s, St. Dunstan’s, St. James’, and St. Luke’s will represent the Diocese of San Diego at EYE in July. More information about fundraising opportunities will be released after their meeting on March 12th. Thank you for supporting the youth of our diocese!
