A Youth Encounter Spirit (Y.E.S.) weekend brings together members of the 6th-8th grade youth of the Diocese of Texas as a Christian community. The 6th-8th grade participants and adult sponsors from youth groups among the parishes and mission churches of our diocese become members of the Y.E.S. family.


The focus of Y.E.S. is on "who Christ is." Y.E.S. helps foster a clearer appreciation of self, richer relationships with others, and a deeper experience with Jesus. Being part of the Y.E.S. family is fun. The weekend affords a loving environment in which to enjoy the warmth of a personal relationship with our Father and his unconditional love. Y.E.S. is one of the many ways God is equipping the youth (and adults) of this diocese for service in furtherance of His eternal purposes.


The registration fee for the Y.E.S. weekend is $65 and includes meals and lodging.
