The bishops and leaders of the diocese’s Episcopal Service Corps program Life Together announced in July 2023 that the program will take a sabbath for the 2024-2025 program year “as we discern faithful next steps for a ministry that has formed more than 200 young adults in the past 24 years.” They cited a “changing landscape for young adult service programs” and the need to reimagine Life Together’s program model “to meet the needs of a new generation of young adults.” A Discernment Team will lead this work.
