Come early on November 30th for a Sabbath time of rest and relaxation on your own. Pastors, priests, youth ministry leaders and all adults who work with young people in the church come to Cross Roads for a weekend of renewal. It’s your weekend, full of all the sustaining support you need: rest, fellowship, networking, fresh ideas, and great food. If you are unable to attend the entire Shepherds Gathering you can attend the Saturday programming with Canon Myra B. Garnes, Canon for Youth & Young Adult Ministries in the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island.
