To, With, & For youth


The PGYM ministers to, with, and for the youth of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles. As the PGYM ministers to youth, it affirms the call to embody and cultivate God’s love. As the PGYM ministers with youth, it recognizes our co-membership in the body of Christ. As the PGYM ministers for youth, it advocates for the dignity and honor their unique place in all creation. In order to assist the youth of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles in living out their baptismal covenant, the Program Group on Youth and Young Adult Ministry assists parishes to minister to youth beyond their local capacity, supports youth leaders and their families, provides opportunities for youth to broaden their horizons, and develops programs that foster collaboration and builds relationships between congregations.

LA City Pilgrimage 2019

June 23rd - June 27th

Trip for incoming High School Freshmen - Incoming Seniors

LA City Pilgrimage is a week-long urban immersion program for high school students within the Diocese of Los Angeles. It is a week of service in and around LA, but it is also a week of looking for God where God can be found. This experience encourages students to question who their neighbor is and how to make their neighbor the subject of engagement and community rather than the object of pity. Through listening those on the margins of society and witnessing first-hand the consequences of economic injustice, students grapple with how to love their neighbor and evaluate their Christian faith through the lens of Christ’s ministry and work. 

Cost: $450 (Scholarships can be made available, please contact Gabe)
