The Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut


Focus: To provide high school aged youth with a peer-led, weekend experience where they can listen and talk openly about their faith, life challenges, and Jesus.

Scope: Happening provides high school-aged youth an opportunity to have a spiritually connected weekend of shared story, talks, worship and music that is led and planned by other teens. In a world that presents real challenges in finding space and tapping into faith, Happening creates community around safe, hopeful, non-judgmental and real conversation about how Christ's grace fits in.


ECCT parishes active: St. Peter's, Milford; St. Mark's, Storrs; St. Stephen's, Ridgefield; St. James', Farmington; St. Paul's, Brookfield; St. Mark's, Mystic

Other information: Happening, thus far, is being brought together by a group of clergy and youth who believe in its potential to bring young people together in a positive, life-changing way
