Episcopal Youth Event (EYE)
Every three years, in accordance with General Convention Resolution #1982-D079, the Episcopal Church convenes an international youth event so “that the energy of the youth of the Episcopal Church can continue to be utilized in active ministry as members of the Body of Christ.”
The theme for EYE20 will be “unite! ¡unámonos!”
The Planning Team chose this theme at their initial meeting in October 2019 after considerable time in discussion, reflection, and prayer.
28 “Come to me, all you who are struggling hard and carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. 29 Put on my yoke, and learn from me. I’m gentle and humble. And you will find rest for yourselves. 30 My yoke is easy to bear, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:29, Common English Bible (CEB)
“It was a blessing to sit with this Team of young people as they engaged and contextualized the guiding Scripture for EYE20” said The Rev. Abi Moon, EYE20 Team Chaplain. “Recognizing that we are ‘yoked together’ as a community through God’s mercy and grace, the Planning Team discerned a call to action for all EYE20 participants and those who will journey alongside them, to unite! ¡unámanos!. Unite as people of the Jesus Movement. Unite as a people following the Way of Love.”
The dates for EYE20 are July 7-11 at University of Maryland College Park. If you are interested in attending as a youth participant or adult chaperone, please complete this form.
