Diocese receives United Thank Offering grant for young adult visioning retreat

Kaileen Alston, Director of Youth & Young Adult Ministry

We are very excited to announce that our diocese has been awarded a grant from the United Thank Offering to hold an overnight visioning retreat for young adult ministry.

See United Thank Offering 125th Anniversary Young Adult Grants – 2015 [PDF].

The purpose of the visioning retreat is to create a forum where real life issues such as financial literacy, cross-cultural inclusion, education, family matters, vocational discernment and health concerns can be explored in the context of our Episcopal tradition. In addition, we want to provide an entity through which young adults can address the larger diocese as a cohesive unit.

If you or a young adult (age 18-33) would like to serve on the planning team for this retreat (which will meet 2 or 3 times before the retreat), please contact Kaileen Alston at The gathering will take place this fall on a date to be announced.
