       The Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church is an independent and autonomous province of the Anglican Communion. We trace our heritage back to the Church of England and are united with 44 million Anglicans world-wide by our common tradition and our relationship with the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Episcopal Church exists throughout the United States and in Columbia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Honduras, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, Venezuela, the Virgin Islands, the Navajoland Area Mission, and the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe. Our international headquarters are at Church Center in New York City.

Every three years the Episcopal Church invites youth from every diocese to gather in one place to worship God, learn about our mission in the world, and make new friendships while renewing old ones. The 2014 EYE will be held on the campus of Villanova University in Philadelphia, PA.

We have four youth attending and representing us. From St. Mark's in Lyons, Nicole Payne. From Christ Cathedral, Julia Mauldin. From Grace in Hutchinson, Kyle Parks and Ty Waln. The adult sponsors are our seminarian Katie Hargis and Father Andy Hook. Please keep this team and all the youth and adults attending EYE in your prayers.

Ever loving God, you have brought us together and empowered us to serve as your disciples. We ask you to guide and bless us as we strive to tell the Good News of your love; teach and nurture all believers; tend to the human condition; transform and reconcile the world as Christ has shown us; and treasure your creation and our salvation through Jesus Christ. May we be engulfed in your love and blessings as we live out the mission and work you have given us, through Jesus Christ, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen.

A prayer for Mother Carolyn and Deacon Harvey

Almighty God, we lift to you Mother Carolyn and Deacon Harvey and ask that as they have dedicated their lives to service in your Church, may you bless them and bestow upon them the gifts neccesary to bring hope and healing to this world. Give to them faith, peace, strength, courage, wisdom, and patience so that in their ministries they may show the love and salvation which you offer unto all people. This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
