Young Professionals

The Episcopal Church Welcomes You! Gather with other Episcopalians, who are very new to the church, exploring, or familiar with it, for fellowship and building professional connections and social ties among the 20s and 30s and 40s-somethings.  

Life after college, and before retirement, comes with many recalibrations, like new jobs, moving to a new city, marriage or divorce, raising children or fur babies, changing churches or expanding spirituality, and more. 

You are not alone on this earthly pilgrimage. 

Young Professional Diocesan Gatherings Are:

  • A mix of social gatherings, volunteer opportunities, worship experiences, and more
  • Affirming spaces for LGTBQIA+ siblings
  • Open to all faith backgrounds
  • Welcoming of theological questions and conversations

Upcoming Events for Young Professionals

  • Rest and Resurrection Weekend

    July 23-25, 2021 Solomon Episcopal Conference Center With guest artist and speaker Scott Erikson

    About the Retreat

    Each of us is wired for connection and community. Gather for connection, rest and resurrection at the Solomon Episcopal Conference Center. A worthwhile weekend away means different things for different personalities. The retreat agenda includes a keynote presentation from Scott Erickson, a touring painter and performance speaker, as well as worship experiences, campfires, and a poolside "sip and paint." There are so many recreational options available at the Solomon Center: hiking trails, an outdoor pool, disc golf, and an open air chapel for your yoga practice. Take the time to explore, catch your breath, and choose your own adventure. The food is delicious, the fellowship authentic, and the fun is ready and waiting.

    Keynote Speaker: Scott Erickson

    “Say Yes: A Liturgy of Not Giving Up on Yourself” is a multi-sensory experience that reveals this moment not as an ending but as a sacred doorway into a much deeper invitation to our hopes, vocation, and our existence itself. Juxtaposing story-teaching, participation, humor, and image curation, artist Scott Erickson walks us through the very personal and universal conversation about the death of a dream and the overwhelming voice of 'Giving Up' in our lives.
