Official Youth Presence at Diocesan Convention

Attending Diocesan Convention is a great opportunity to see some of the inner workings of the Episcopal Church and meet other youth and adults from around the diocese. There are lots of ways for youth to be involved.

Delegates: Four high school youth are elected at Camp to be full, voting delegates at Diocesan Convention. This is a great honor and privilege and a rarity in many diocese.

Pages: Youth in grades 8-12 and college students are invited to be pages at Diocesan Convention in Topeka. Pages pass out and collect ballots during the business session of convention on Saturday.

Acolytes: Youth and college students are needed to be acolytes at the convention opening Eucharist on Friday afternoon at 4 pm at the Cathedral.

Compline: Every-other-year, youth offer our traditional youth event Compline service on Friday night after the banquet.

Youth will stay the night Upton Hall Conference Center, which has beds and showers, with linens provided. There will be two adult chaperones present as well. Youth will be transported back and forth from Upton Hall and the Topeka Capital Plaza Hotel and Conference Center by adults and college students. Youth are asked not to transport themselves or other youth.
