In 2016 we are reactivating our Youth Groups under the leadership of our new rector, Father Matt!
Our Senior Youth Group is made up from young people who are in 8th grade through 12th grade. Our Junior Youth Group is made up of children between 3rd grade and 7th grade. In 2016 we are having several major Youth Group events that focus on community and fellowship.
Our next event is in February!
Senior Youth Group Trip to Downtown New York City (February 11, 2017)
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!
Join Father Matt (along with a few other chaperones) and members of our Youth Group as we take a trip to Ellis Island & downtown Manhattan to visit two historic Episcopal Churches.
We will visit and tour Trinity Church on Wall Street & Saint Paul’s Chapel…
Trinity Church is an Episcopal Church and it is one of the most famous and oldest churches in America. In 1705 Trinity Church was granted 205 acres of land (nearly all of it in Manhattan) by Queen Anne. Although Trinity Church has sold off much of the land that was part of the royal grant from Queen Anne, it is still one of the largest landowners in New York City with 14 acres of Manhattan real estate including 5.5 million square feet of commercial space in Hudson Square. Saint Paul’s Chapel is a chapel of Trinity Church. It is the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan. George Washington, along with members of the United States Congress, worshipped at St. Paul’s Chapel on his Inauguration Day, on April 30, 1789. Washington also attended services at St. Paul’s during the two years New York City was the country’s capital. In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, and continuing for eight months Saint Paul’s served the needs of fire fighters, construction workers, police and others, as hundreds of volunteers worked 12-hour shifts around the clock, serving meals, making beds, counseling and praying.
