Saint Mark's Youth

j2a_teens_webSaint Mark’s Youth hopes to be an inclusive and meaningful program for everyone involved. That is why we are reaching out to youth and parents to find out what would be meaningful to them. Youth and parent involvement in planning is critical to our success.

The calendar of youth events (which will be updated regularly) can be found here. We will be sure to give as much advance notice as possible for all youth events.

Civil Rights Pilgrimage 2019

On June 25th – July 1st, youth from four Episcopal parishes in Columbus went on a Civil Rights Pilgrimage to Atlanta, Montgomery, and Selma. Join us on Sunday, September 22, following the 10:30 service to hear the travelers share their experience with our church.

Adventurers Wanted!

A Dungeons & Dragons campaign for Episcopal youth in Columbus, OH will be hosted here at Saint Mark’s on the third Wednesday of every month. The goal is, first and foremost, to have fun. Beyond that, we will use the structure of the 5th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons to do some collaborative story telling and learn about the saints we honor in our church calendar. More information about how you can participate can be found here.

There will also be a youth-specific mission trip planned for the summer of 2017. This will likely somewhere in the Appalachian Region. More information will be provided as plans fall into place.
