St. Edward’s Youth & Youth Events

The youth of our parish are a vital component and we are so pleased to have them participate in all aspects of parish life! On any given Sunday, our youth are attending Christian Education, being cared for in our newly renovated nursery, enjoying our swing set after services, and serving as readers, ushers, acolytes, in praise band and choir, and even serving as LEMs! They are also very active in discernment committees and in attending convention.

We continue to make sure our youth are engaged, not only parish life, but in events available to them throughout our diocesan youth programs and events, as well as community events such as the Amos Herr Community Festival and the Hempfield Area Food Bank project.

If you have any questions regarding diocesan or convocation events listed below, please contact the parish office or speak with the rector.

Our own Lancaster Convocation has many events, throughout the year, to engage our youth and bring opportunities for all youth to get to know each other and be “in community” with one another. Below is a list of events currently on the calendar. Contacting the sponsoring church will be the best way to find out further details if you are interested in having your youth attend.
