Young Adult

The diocesan young adult ministry office supports local congregations, campus ministries and diocesan-wide events and programs toward the goals of nurturing the spiritual lives of young adults in their twenties and thirties and reaching out to those not yet engaged. Please visit our website for young adults: EDOWYoungAdults.org! Whether you're new to the area and looking for a local congregation, a student looking for a campus ministry or leaving this region for a new job or school, we'd love to help you get connected. Just provide us some basic information and we'll be in touch!

In these COVID-19 days...

While we deal with the necessary responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, we're hosting some things to help us all stay connected, and happy to spread the word when others are doing the same. Visit the Calendar page of the young adults website for details about the online Compline services each Sunday evening at 9pm and the online Bible Study on Monday evenings at 8pm. You might also check out the EDOW Young Adults page on Facebook to find out about the virtual happy hours that some of our young adults are planning and hosting! And this coming Wednesday, April 22, we'll celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with one of our young adults leading a Zoom discussion on climate change! Details and link are on the young adults website.

Contact Rev. Todd with questions, dreams, concerns and ideas!

Sunday Compline for Young Adults

Weekly Sunday Night Compline: Gather with us online at 9pm on Sunday nights to pray a simple Compline service, sometimes straight from the 1979 BCP and sometimes with adapted, inclusive language. We'll meet on Zoom and share-screen the readings. The link and password for those meetings are on the calendar page of the YA website.
