Preparing for Mission Pilgrimage

August 4, 2017, members of the diocesan Youth Leadership Academy and their adult companions head off for a week of mission and pilgrimage to Las Fronteras, learning about life in the Arizona/Mexico borderlands and tribal lands , organized in parthership with the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona. They will explore issues of borders, boundaries, walls, bridges, paths, strangers, family, protection, and hospitality.

As our young leaders prepare for the trip, amid the packing, they have been asked to reflect on something they will need to leave behind in order to be more present to what God has in store for her or him on the trip. Over the coming weeks, look for their reflections here.
