Join with other Diocesan youth this summer for a week of service and fellowship at Grace House on the Mountain. A non-profit organization owned and operated by The Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Virginia perched on Sandy Ridge near Norton and St. Paul in Wise County, Virginia, Grace House seeks to be a place of social justice and advocacy for the welfare of the Appalachian people. Grace House on the Mountain endeavors to extend the love of Christ by reaching out into communities showing mercy and compassion, through responsiveness by “working with, not for” the families in the surrounding area. Work projects center on helping families in need to have safe, warm, and dry homes.
The Diocesan youth mission trips this summer offer a separate trip for middle schoolers (current 6-8th graders) and high schoolers (current 9-12 graders) to make the experience even more close-knit and meaningful for our youth participants. Registration is now open: June 18-24 for middle schoolers and June 25-July 1 for high schoolers. The cost is $200.00.
