From evening meetings to prayer groups to day long pop-up events, youth in grades 6-12 can find all sorts of ways to get involved and meet teens from across the Episcopal Diocese of Maine while exploring their faith.
Our youth identify as different genders, races, political persuasions (if any), and each is on their own journey with God. But they find something in common – Maine Episcopal Youth events are always places where you’ll be accepted for who you really are, where you can explore questions big and small for yourself, where you can grow closer to Jesus Christ, and where you can grow into the person God made you to be.
Youth Ministry events are open to teens of all abilities/disabilities, health, religions, sexual orientations, national origins, gender identities, citizenship statuses, etc. If you have special needs, let us know in advance so we can make things good for you.
Invite your friends!
No one has ever been turned away from a Maine Episcopal Youth Event because of inability to pay.
If you’re a teen who needs partial financial aid, then just check the financial aid box on the registration form. If you need 100% financial aid, or if there isn’t a box on the form, then just ask the event leader or your priest. (And remember to thank your priest after the event, because most churches contribute significantly to financial aid for the teens in their church!)
The congregation and the Diocese of Maine split the scholarship cost for any teen who needs it. But if the teen isn’t part of an Episcopal congregation, or if the congregation can’t contribute, then the Diocese of Maine takes care of it.
Your donations are always welcome!
