Happening is a Christian experience presented by teenagers, for teenagers with the help of clergy and lay adult leadership. It seeks to achieve this purpose by bringing young persons and adults to fuller personal knowledge of and relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and to a deeper level of commitment and apostleship.
Our most recent weekend, Happening 71, was February 15-17, 2019. Led by St. Patrick’s senior, Autumn Toms, 175 youth and adults gathered for a renewal weekend at Camp Mikell. With the theme Love Unstoppable, the youth met both in small groups and as one body to discuss topics like piety, sacrificial love, apostles, how to bring the love back down the mountain, and many more.
A big thanks to Autumn Toms, Rector, Sophie Alexander, Observing Rector, Spiritual Directors, Rev. Bonnie Underwood and Clayton Harrington, Lay Directors, Sally Benton and Matthew Bowers, and especially to all our youth that served on team for this transformational weekend! It couldn’t have been done without all of these dedicated people!
