[The Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs] Young adults of color are invited to examine their gifts and explore opportunities at an Episcopal Church retreat, Why Serve 2017, Monday, June 12 to Thursday, June 15.

Sponsored by the Episcopal Church Department of Ethnic Ministries, Why Serve 2017 will be held at Bexley Seabury, Chicago, IL.

Invited to attend this conference of fellowship, training, discernment, and self-care are young adults (age 18-30) from the Asiamerican, Black, Indigenous/Native American and Latino/Hispanic communities of the Episcopal Church, as well as those desiring to serve in ethnic ministries.

Canon Anthony Guillen, Latino/Hispanic, on behalf of the Ethnic Missioners: the Rev. Bradley Hauff, Indigenous; the Rev. Angela Ifill, Black; and the Rev. Winfred Vergara, Asiamerican. “In this Conference, there are keynote speakers, workshop leaders, your peers and your Missioners to help you. We hope you will join us for this transformative experience.”
