A MESSAGE FROM DIANA MERMON, YOUTH DIRECTOR

Posted February 22, 2022

I am sad to announce that Presbyterian Youth Triennium has been canceled for this summer—July 24-27, 2022. Thank you all for praying and supporting the youth and adult advisors who planned on attending the event. PYT gave us the following message to relay to all who support Triennium.

The PYT Advisors and COVID Medical Advisory Team met over the last few weeks to discuss the safety and health concerns for increase in COVID with the spread of Omicron. This team wanted to make sure that PYT was a Youth centered conference. PYT gave the following response.

In beginning to address all of the COVID recommendations, our office and coordinators became increasingly concerned that we were no longer planning and hosting a youth gathering so much as coordinating a COVID-centered event. This, along with the news that we would face a 100% chance of clusters at our event, made it clear we needed to shift.

Instead of holding a traditional Triennium this summer, we will flip and begin with our PYT Beyond work. The PYT Beyond Team was created to carry the 2022 theme out into the world after the event and beyond the four days spent in Indianapolis. This work will now serve as a pathway leading up to our next in-person Triennium—which we are close to confirming dates for in July 2025!
