It's Time for EYE!
This year’s Episcopal Youth Event will be held in Oklahoma City. It is open to high school aged youth ranging from incoming 9th graders to exiting 12th graders.
The 2017 Episcopal Youth Event (EYE17) will focus on the theme Path to Peace, based on Matthew 5:1-12.Path to Peace as a theme was developed by the EYE17 Mission Planning Team who discerned a call to focus on peacemaking and the ways each member of the Jesus Movement can pursue a path to peace.
The estimated cost is $1,000. This cost includes EYE registration fees, airfare, meals and lodging.The cost for approved applicants would be divided into thirds with one third payable by the student, one third by their parish and the final third coming from The Episcopal Diocese of San Diego. Fundraising opportunities will be available for both youth and their parishes.
Pre-Registration is NOW OPEN! At this time, all you need to do is pay a $50 deposit and email in your application form. Pre-registration will close on Monday, January 9 at 5 p.m. Registration and applications will not be accepted after this time.
The EYE selection committee will review applications and notify youth via email of their selection for the trip on Friday, January 13, 2017. With only 24 spots available for the trip, it is possible that not everyone that applies will be selected. We will be using the applications to determine youth who will most benefit from the trip, and represents as broad a section of our diocese as possible. Youth who are not selected will be refunded their application fee.

*This global gathering of Episcopal Youth offers the opportunity to connect with other youth from your faith tradition. Find out the ways that we are similar and celebrate our differences!
