A journey of pilgrimage and discovery for high schoolers
This year’s trip includes a special visit to the 81st General Convention of the Episcopal Church – the once every three years meeting of the entire worldwide Episcopal Church. At this convention, our church will be electing a new Presiding Bishop and, if our dioceses vote to approve juncture in March, will take action on our juncture. We’ll attend a revival with current Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. We’ll get to learn about and explore how our church works and visit the convention exhibit hall.
Each day includes time for fun, time for service, and time for small groups to debrief about the day’s events. We’ll also make a special outing to Mammoth Cave National Park towards the end of the trip!
This mission trip — led by Regional Youth Missioners, the Rev. Radha Kaminski, and the Rev. Joel Turmo — is open to high schoolers in the Episcopal Dioceses of Eastern and Western Michigan. Please read below for more information and to register.
We hope you will join us for this wonderful opportunity to serve God’s people, enjoy God’s creation, and meet other high school students around and beyond our two dioceses. Join us on the journey!
