Urban Immersion

Middle School Mission Trip

"For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves." Luke 22:27

Join youth from all over the diocese for a weekend of hands-on service, community building, and spiritual formation in the beautiful and diverse neighborhood of City Heights. Highlights will include serving at St. Mark's monthly fresh food distribution, a night of movies and games, and an opportunity to get to know youth who share your faith but not your neighborhood!

The trip runs from 11:00 a.m. on June 16th  - 9:00 am on June 18th

Urban Immersion is for youth entering
6th-9th grade for the 2017-2018 school year

Please contact Charlette Preslar with questions regarding this program or for scholarship information.

Youth in ACTION

The Ground Crew- ECS Volunteers, showed up at Allen Airways Museum at Gillespie Field, on Saturday, February 18th for the ECS Gala Dinner. The Ground Crew were youth volunteers from St. Phillip’s in Lemon Grove. They wore their uniform, a bright yellow shirt and with light saber-flashlights and ensured that traffic flowed smoothly and safely as guests parked their cars. 

Thank you, St. Phillip’s Youth, for your service. Thank you Joe and Omar for your supervision and transportation.

EYE Hoedown

Y'all are invited for a rootin' tootin' good time at the EYE Hoedown on April 29th at Christ Church. Grab your pardner and dosey doe over to the photo booth. Rustle up some deeeelicious barbeque to keep you kickin' till the cows come home. Be sure to wear your western best!

All proceeds support the youth delegation to EYE 2017.

It costs roughly $1000 for each youth to attend EYE. This fundraiser will go a long way towards helping them subsidize the expense and you will get to have some amazing barbecue and an evening under the stars with your friends.

Bring your neighbors! It is sure to be a good time!
