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.  


Hands in Healing Youth Pilgrimage


The Hands in Healing Youth Pilgrimage to the Holy Lands is an act of biblical and spiritual emergence.  Challenges along the way stretch pilgrims spiritually, emotionally, and physically.  Recollection of these challenges gives our youth an insight into their own human character—an inward glance at into the mysterious wrappings of creation.
