The Episcopal Youth Event (EYE), July 10-14 in Edmond, Oklahoma
Six youth (two from St. Martins’ – Kiki and Austin!) and two sponsors from across the Diocese of Missouri are preparing to attend the 2017 Episcopal Youth Event (EYE17) this July 10-14 in Edmond, Oklahoma.
This is an international gathering of Episcopal youth held every three years. This year, expected EYE attendance is projected to be about 1300! We also will be focusing on the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:1-11, and invite everyone to join us in meditating on finding and following the path to peace.
Even if you are not able to attend EYE17, you can follow along online via Facebook Live on our page and on social media or by using the hashtag #EYE17.

Almighty Lord, peace maker of the world, we pray that you lead us down the path to peace as we yearn for peace in every form. We open our hearts to you as you reveal our calling through this mission. May there be love and acceptance in our hearts. May we also root ourselves in your vine and make our branches your path. As your roots strengthen all. In the name of the Holy Trinity. Amen.
