ABOUT EYC
EYC provides time for fellowship and spiritual growth opportunities for youth to form a community committed to living out the words of our baptismal covenant.
With God's help we will:
• Proclaim by word and example the good news of God in Christ
• Seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourselves
• Strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.
In addition to weekly activities, such as games, movies, and rock wall climbing, members participate in several retreat events each year that combine spiritual development with first-class fun activities.

This year we are putting a new emphasis on our Sunday evening programs. We have an exciting fall program planned with faith, fellowship, food and fun each evening. We are planning some Sunday service projects, hopefully a field trip to a synagogue along with guest speakers on Islam and Buddhism as we explore our faith in conjunciton with others.

Our 6-8th grade programs will sometimes meet with the older youth and at other times meet separately as they enjoy our new Re-form Curriculum. A lively and thought provoking series of videos that will help our youth explore their faith while having a good time.

MISSION TRIP TO THE EASTERN SHORE

EYC is going to the Eastern Shore this June. We will be working in conjunction the Holy Trinity Onancock. The Diocese of Southern Virginia has established a new mission initiative on the Eastern Shore to serve the large Hispanic poplulation that works in the chicken plants and on the large agrobusiness farms. These people who help put food on our tables struggle to put food on their own tables and often live in less that desirable conditions. The diocesan effort includes a food bank which in today's concern over imigration is desperately needed. With immigration crackdowns even legal immigrants are afraid to go to the grocery store for fear of being stopped by immigraiton authorities. So the Food Bank is doing the shopping for many families.

This will give our youth and other members of the parish a chance to meet our hispanic nieghbors and get to know them and their struggles while assisting them. Cpt Churck Marks and Lynn Meadows are making the arangements and this trip will be open to adults as well as the teens so it will be a parish wide effort. Watch this space for more details. . 

Below are pictures from one of our previous trips.
