Presbyterian Youth Triennium 2022

The decision was made to cancel the 2022 Presbyterian Youth Triennium because of the ongoing pandemic. Read the letter from our Ministry and Mission Coordinator and the PMA article about the cancellation of PYT 2022 in the links below.

I am sure that this decision will be a disappointment to many. Despite this news, the Presbytery of St. Augustine remains committed to nurturing the faith and the connections of our youth. Here is an opportunity coming up in our presbytery to demonstrate our love for and commitment to our youth. Now that we have learned about Triennium, we are committed to planning and promoting more events in the near future.

The “Light the Fire” youth retreat, will be held April 29-May 1 at Montgomery Center. The retreat for 6th-12th graders will feature Rev. Damon P. Williams and Paul Demer who were part of the 2021 Montreat leadership. The cost is $125 which covers lodging and meals.

The presbytery will fully support the PYT Beyond – the new expanded ministry for Presbyterian youth that will offer virtual sessions, cohorts for youth and adults and online courses related to the theme, “When Did We See You?”. PYT Beyond will lead up the 2025 Presbyterian Youth Triennium event which will also be in Indianapolis, and will include a component for young adults that would have missed participating in this year’s event. Stay tuned for details as PYT Beyond rolls out in the coming months.

We give thanks for our Triennium Co-Registrars, Julie Reffel and Elizabeth Meux, who are committed to assisting with future programming.
