For the seventh year Youth in Action returns with a call to serve at their event beginning Friday Feb 19 and concluding with Worship at St. John’s McAllen Sunday morning February 21, 2016.  Like Diocesan Council, this event has become a time of reunion, renewal, and youth business.  That business is to join us and say YES to a weekend of service.  See full details and links to the Youth and Sponsor registration forms on the Youth page.

Registration is Open Online

Online registration for Council 2015 to be held February 26 – 28 at the Embassy Suites and Convention Center in San Marcos is now available.  And this year the church with bragging rights of “first to register” goes to St. Andrew’s, Brackettville, followed closely by St. Matthew’s, Kenedy.  Registration will close on Friday, February 13, 2015.

Our registration process will be very similar to last year with three (3) registration forms:

NOTE: No Youth in Action registration this year.  Because Council Eucharist has moved to Saturday morning to allow all in the diocese to celebrate as Bishop Reed is formally recognized as Bishop Coadjutor, there will not be a traditional Youth in Action event in 2015.  However, diocesan youth are invited to participate in the celebratory service beginning at 10:00 am on Saturday.  For more information visit the Youth in Action at Worship page and the Worship (Saturday) page.
