We are excited to announce that the Episcopal Church of Cuba has been invited to send up to 8 youth delegates and 2 chaperones to the Latin American EJE conference that will take place in Panama July 17th to July 20th 2019.
The event, which is being held and hosted in the Diocese of Panama, will welcome young people 16-26 living and worshipping in and around the dioceses of Province IX for several days of worship, music, workshops, and community-building. At EJE19, the dioceses of Province IX will be joined by limited delegations from Iglesia Anglicana de la Region Central de America (IARCA), Cuba, Mexico and Brazil, as well as the United States.
The cost to send each delegate from Cuba (including Registration and Airfare) is $600. Bishop Griselda has requested that we try to enable all 8 delegates and 2 chaperones to attend - based on support from our network, and our objective is to wrap up fundraising and register attendees by the end of March. If you, your church, or your diocese are interested in supporting a delegate, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Pat Cage at 203-858-5794.
“EJE19 will be an incredible gathering of young people to learn about and claim their place as members of the Jesus Movement,” said Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry. “We are the Episcopal Church, but the Lord we follow wants us to be more than that. We are baptized disciples of the Jesus of Nazareth, and we are therefore not just the Episcopal Church, but we are the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement. We are people committed to living his way of unselfish, sacrificial love. I’m looking forward to joining this community in Panama next July.”
Youth are the future of the Episcopal Church in Cuba. Please consider enabling a Cuban delegate to attend this exciting event Thank you.
