It’s official!

EYE 2014 will be at Villanova University, July 9 to 13, 2014. 

Here’s the announcement that was sent out today by the Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs. (It’s word-for-word from the press release so if it sounds a bit formal – meaning it is not in my usual blog tone – that’s why.)

The popular Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) will be held at Villanova University in suburban Philadelphia, PA. Slated for July 9-13, 2014, EYE14 is being planned in partnership with the Diocese of Pennsylvania.

The announcement was made June 8 by Bishop Clifton Daniel of the Diocese of Pennsylvania, to Executive Council, currently meeting in Maryland.

“Villanova University offers a scenic setting, with ample facilities for all the activities we are planning for EYE14,” Bronwyn Clark Skov, Episcopal Church Youth Ministries Officer, explained.  “Villanova is well known for its academics as well as its athletics, and its prime location near public transportation makes it an ideal place for our gathering.”

The 2014 event marks the twelfth EYE and remains a popular and well-attended event. EYE 2014 is geared for youth in grades 9-12 during the 2013-2014 academic year and their adult leaders.
