Living Change Fellowship at St. Mary’s
What was known for 10 years as “The New York Intern Program” at St. Mary’s, is changing! NYIP was one of the founding members of the Episcopal Service Corps, a nation-wide umbrella organization of young adult service and justice year programs. In growing NYIP, last year it became a program of the Diocese of New York. To catch up with the growth, names are changing. The Diocesan program will be called The New York Service and Justice Collaborative; it will support multiple programs in the diocese. St. Mary’s program will be called The Living Change Fellowship. New “Fellows” (no longer interns) will arrive August 25.
we will welcome the new Fellows in worship on September 3.
