Happening of RI

IMG-6980 Happening is a spiritual retreat for high school students, which takes place at the Episcopal Conference Center in Pascoag, RI. Young people from all over the state help to plan and implement the weekend, and it is spent in a relaxed, fun, and safe environment where youth can share their faith in a Christian atmosphere.

Throughout the weekend youth, young adults, and clergy share life and faith experiences. The schedule is balanced to include a wide range of activities such as active discussion, low-key reflection time, informal musical jam sessions, and high-energy creative activities. A young person serves as “Rector” and leads the weekend with the help of clergy and a support staff.

The world-wide Happening Movement believes that Christianity is relevant to youth today and it can transform a rapidly changing world. It allows youth to develop and nourish spirituality in a fun, thoughtful, and welcoming community.

Happening weekends are open to high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors. The program begins Friday at 6:00 pm and concludes on Sunday at 5:30 pm after a closing Eucharist. Send questions to Happeningri@gmail.com.
