It is often said in church circles that “young people are the future of the church.” In the dioceses of Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania, we believe that young people are the church now. We seek to provide quality programming that is accessible and valuable to youth from each of our congregations.

Episcopal Youth Event (EYE)

EYE is the triennial gathering of young people and their sponsors from every diocese of the Episcopal Church. It is a celebration to inspire deeper faith in Jesus Christ and a renewed commitment to mission and ministry. It is the single largest youth event in the Episcopal Church, attended by some 1500 young people, adult sponsors, bishops, staff, and resource people. EYE is an opportunity to meet other young people from around the world and experience the church on a global level.


A “Digital Camp” will be offered this summer for all children and youth from rising third graders through graduated seniors. A team is at work on a plan that will deliver beloved aspects of camp online and in the mail. “Digital Camp” will be held on the five Wednesdays in July. The theme is unity and 1 Corinthians 1:10 is the guiding Bible verse.
