Versed: Memento Mori

Taught by Bishops and Clergy of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, Versed is an event for Young Adults to engage in learning and deep conversations about faith. 

Versed: Memento Mori

Death and our understanding of death are absolutely empty. No clear image comes to mind. The concept of death has a use for the living. All we can say about death is that it is either real or it is not real. If it is real, then the end of one's life is a simple end. If it is not real, then the end of one's embodied life is not true death, but transference to another life. We are all equals when thinking about death, lost in the ignorance of our own limitations, death is a fact of life but a mystery of creation.

Called to the Wall

Via Crucis to the Border will highlight plight of immigrants

Members of the Episcopal Dioceses of Los Angeles and San Diego, including Bishop John Taylor, will draw attention to the plight of immigrants as they travel the way of the cross. There will also be a worship service from the Mexican side of the border.

All are welcome to join in at any of the stops.

At the border we will bear witness to the plight of those affected by immigration by celebrating the Eucharist, remembering that Jesus was an immigrant. Please be sure to bring your own water. It is a bit of a walk to the wall from the Friendship Park parking lot; please do be prepared for the pilgrimage.

Diocesan Convention
Dec

Diocesan Convention

  • Ontario Convention Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Diocese holds an annual Convention where clergy and lay delegates from all the churches in the Diocese come together to make decisions. These decisions cover budgetary concerns, governing issues, and resolutions regarding current events or church-related issues. Decisions are made by vote after discussion and debate. Special Conventions are held as determined by the Diocese for specific reasons, budgetary matters, election of a new Bishop, or other issues that are not resolved by the annual Convention. In 1998, a change to the Diocesan Canons was passed allowing young people aged 16 and over to be qualified electors. Also, there are ten seats for one young person from each Deanery on the floor of Convention. In 2014, the Diocesan Constitution was amended to allow these young people have seat, voice, and vote,” so your opinion can be heard and declared. In any case, as a volunteer, a Deanery representative, or an elected lay delegate from one of our churches, the tasks for which you are responsible are important to the total ministry of the Diocese.

LA City Pilgrimage

LA City Pilgrimage

LA City Pilgrimage -- June 25-30

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.

30 Hour Fast

  • Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Students are invited into the ancient Lenten practice of fasting and to experience that fast within the context of social justice, specifically the reality of food scarcity in and around Los Angeles. Throughout this experience we wrestle with the hard questions of what Jesus is calling us to do and be in our world today.  

We will gather at 7 PM at the Cathedral Center on Friday March 10th.  

Saturday March 11th, we will be serving breakfast at The Midnight Mission then returning to the Cathedral Center for a number of activities and events.

At the end of the day on Saturday, we will break our fast with Holy Eucharist (all are welcome to attend!) and then we will have dinner around 5PM!

If you are planning to bring students, we ask only that you help us with transportation to the volunteer site.
