We engage our youth in faith development through events such as:



March 31 to April 1

Nightwatch is an overnight “lock-in” program in Grace Cathedral.  Join youth from around the Diocese and Northern California for fellowship and fun.  There will be facilitated community building, active and contemplative activities, art, music, and prayer. Nightwatch can also be a time for youth ministers from thorough the diocese to spend casual time together. We hope to see you and your youth there! Cost for Nightwatch is $15, and there is ample scholarship available.

All youth must be accompanied by a designated Adult Leader. 

Registration coming soon!

Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) 2017

The 2017 Episcopal Youth Event will be held at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, OK, July 10-14. The theme this year is Path to Peace, based on Matthew 5:1-12. All youth currently enrolled in 8th-12th grades are eligible to apply. DioCal has space to bring 24 youth and 5 adult chaperones. Don’t miss your chance to represent the Diocese of California at a national youth event!

Register for EYE 2017 here.



Every young person needs a space to experience unconditional love in community. That’s the special purpose of Happening, a unique weekend retreat led by youth, for youth, dedicated to diving deeper in faith and relationship. The teens will spend time being vulnerable with other teens; they will have a chance to share their joys and struggles with people their own age, who understand the hard work of figuring out who God is calling you to be.

This year's Happening is cancelled (2017)
