Jr/Sr High Ministries
Diocese of Northern IN Winter Youth Retreat
When: January 26-28, 2018
2018 Winter Retreat - The theme for this year was Inspirational Words of Encouragement.
Our plan is to have teen speakers. They speak on topics they deal with on a daily basis at school. These talks are followed by discussions on celebrating one another’s joys and how to deal with life’s challenges with the help of Jesus Christ and with the support of our teen faith community. The Winter Retreat is open to all middle school and high school students.
Goals for the Sr. High Mission Week
Knowing that no matter where we live, who we meet and who we are, there is always opportunity to help those in need around us. Our goal was to plan a mission trip that was within Northern Indiana, serving our own brothers and sisters in need. We plan to serve again in the CEMP churches. In Gary at St. Augustine’s and St. Barnabas by the Dunes, St. Christopher’s in Crown Point and St. Timothy’s in Griffith. The experience the teens get from serving is a heart that is full and a desire to take the servant heart back to their hometown and continue to serve.
2018 Mission Week is June 10-16, 2018.
The Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) is a conference that is held every three years for teens from all over the country. During EYE the teens experience worship, workshops, activities, and various events that help to develop leadership skills. EYE 2017 was held at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, OK. Our Diocese sent seven Sr. High Youth and two adults.
