Who: Current middle and high school youth from the Episcopal Dioceses of Maine and New Hampshire.
What: A two-night, two-day retreat at Barbara Harris Camp and Conference Center in New Hampshire to invite prayer, community building, fun and discernment about how youth experience God at work in the world right now, and what they want their church to do about it.
When: February 17, 18, 19 (Friday night to Sunday after lunch). Assistance in finding carpools is available.
Why: As we integrate our “new normal” and live into new ways of being with COVID-19 in our midst, and in this climate of political polarization, racial and economic disparity and climate change crisis, our young people have wisdom to share and needs to address. This Have Your Say Youth Forum and Retreat provides an opportunity for prayer, community-building and meeting with church leaders from two Episcopal dioceses to share wisdom and plan ways to live fully into Christ’s mission for the world now, in 2023.
