The Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta has created Keep/Watch: Suicide, Christ, and Community. This is a resource to equip people and congregations to practice community-based suicide prevention. This workbook is for anyone who wants to help keep their community safe from suicide. It’s theologically and experientially grounded and informed by peer-reviewed research and evidence-based outcomes. 

Keep/Watch is now available for purchase on our diocesan website! Bulk orders with wholesale discounts can be made through the publisher

High school graduates and their loved ones are invited to join Bishop Wright and EYCDIOATL to celebrate their accomplishment!

Our Diocesan Youth Commission is a leadership body composed of clergy, lay leaders, and students. DYC members meet throughout the school year to shape the vision and practice of EYCDIOATL.

We’re mixing things up! On Saturday, August 12 we’ll travel down to Macon to float the Ocmulgee River. (Don’t worry, Helen River fans — we’re taking turns between North and Middle Georgia and will be back next year.) Our lunch and Eucharist will be hosted by St. Francis Episcopal Church in Macon. Youth and chaperones of all ages are invited — staff and students can sign up here.

  • Cost is $50/person for a tube rental + bus pass bundle (includes a seat on the charter bus), or $15/person for just the tube rental (for those carpooling or driving). Lunch and dinner will be provided by The Diocese.
  • If you are sending more than 2-3 students from your parish, please make sure you send a chaperone (or two, if you’re riding with students).   

Team preparation for Happening 78 (October 20-22). High school students who have already attended a Happening can apply for Team here before August 2.
