Christ Episcopal Church


Area Episcopal Youth visit College Park, MD



EYE (pronounced E-Y-E) stands for Episcopal Youth Event. It is a gathering of youth ages 15-19 from around the world who assemble on a college campus to learn, laugh, and worship together. It is the single greatest and second largest event the Episcopal Church does. Since this event is held only once every three years, for many #EYE23 will be their only chance to attend.

2023’s theme is Regreso A Casa: A New Age of Faith. This bilingual theme emphasizes a kind of “homecoming.”

With close to 1,500 people in attendance (including youth, their adult mentors, clergy, and bishops from around the church), EYE programs focus on helping develop leadership skills, spiritual practices, and early stages of vocational discernment. Time is spent in worship (amazing, awesome, and authentic worship), large group presentations (from entertaining, educated, engaging folks), small group discussions, workshops on a variety of topics (Participants select the workshops they wish to attend.), and time to hang-out and meet Episcopalians from around the world.

EVENT 2023


Youth will come away from EYE with more than memories: Youth will make new friends and through them and the gathered community will gain a greater understanding of their personal connection to something much bigger. Participants will be asked some tough questions about diversity, inclusion, and how to live into the Baptismal Covenant each day. Youth will also be exposed to creative music, programs, and activities showing the wide and diverse landscape of people who make up The Episcopal Church. Discovering that differences in music, worship style, or beliefs are not dividers, but rather unifiers in Christ.
