The next Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) will be held at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, OK on July 10-14, 2017. EYE17 is being planned by the Episcopal Church in partnership with the Diocese of Oklahoma.
“EYE is always a great event for both our youth and for our adults,” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry commented. “I have attended many of the Episcopal Youth Events and I have fond memories of joining our youth in celebration, learning and fun. EYE17 is a strong component of the Jesus Movement.”
“The Diocese of Oklahoma is excited about hosting the Episcopal Youth Event in 2017,” Oklahoma Bishop Edward J. Konieczny said. “The youth are an integral part of the Diocese of Oklahoma and hosting the Episcopal Youth Event is an affirmation of our commitment to their formation.”
EYE traditionally draws hundreds of youth from throughout the Episcopal Church. EYE 2017 marks the 13th EYE and remains a popular and well-attended event. EYE 2017 is geared for youth in grades 9-12 during the 2016-2017 academic year and their adult leaders.
“University of Central Oklahoma – UCO – offers a great venue for EYE, with lots of room and great facilities for the range of activities we are planning for EYE17,” Bronwyn Clark Skov, Episcopal Church Youth Ministries Missioner said. “UCO is located just outside of Oklahoma City, so travel will be easy for all.”
