In the summer of 2022, the ELCA will host a national Youth Gathering in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This Youth Gathering will include the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE), a pre-event to the Gathering that empowers youth of color and those whose primary language is other than English. 

On Tuesday, July 13 at 7:00 p.m, New City Parish and the Southwest California Synod will host an information meeting about MYLE and the Youth Gathering, specifically geared toward congregations with youth of color and those whose primary language is other than English. We plan to have Spanish translation for this information session. The Zoom ID will be 939 2568 9545.
