EYE (Episcopal Youth Event) is a triennial gathering of youth, youth leaders, and bishops from across the Episcopal Church worldwide.  The event is filled with diverse and enriching corporate worship, workshops on a variety of topics (spiritual, social, artistic), games, and large-group presentations.

EYE is an amazing experience and a rare look at the larger Episcopal Church.  You’ll meet people from all over the world, and you’ll get to experience the diversity not just of culture but also of ideas in the Church.  EYE participants challenge themselves in discussing differences while sharing the common table and celebrating the unity of the Church.  There are opportunities to serve as acolytes and Eucharistic ministers in large, exciting liturgy.  And it’s a chance to experience living on a college campus before you graduate high-school.
