The Thunder Bay DYU will be hosting a bowling and bible study event at Galaxy Lanes on Arthur St. at 7:30pm on Aug. 20th anyone between the ages of 13 and 24 are totally welcome to come and check it out. As the title indicates we will be playing a game of bowling (If bowling isn’t your thing, feel free to be a cheerleader) and afterwards there will be a bible study from the series “Bad Boys of the Bible” Hope to see you there!
This years youth synod will be focusing on the role that the media plays in the world today and how it affects teens (especially Christian teens). We’re still coming up with a theme but in the meantime each deanery has their own part to do in organizing, and planning some of the things that will go on at camp as far as making bible studys, planning the sessions, services, games, and activities. Basically everything that makes youth synod a great experience! The forms have been given out, one to each parish. We hope to see you there!
Okay everyone, it’s time for our annual All-Nighter!
We will be meeting at St. Thomas’ Anglican Church (on the corner of Edward and Amelia St.) on November 12th at 6:30pm. The cost is only $20 and that covers the cost of 2 games of lazer tag, tokens for arcade games, and pizza. After lazer tag we will be heading back to the church for a mid night service and have fun for the rest of the night.
Hope to see you there!

Hello one and all!
We are on track for our retreat with the Algoma Deanery Youth Unit, and any retreat wouldn’t be complete without those pesky forms that you have to fill out just in case!
Please download these bad boys and get them filled out and returned as soon as possible!
It’s going to be a ton of fun this year, hope to see you there!
This past weekend (well, more accurately Wednesday – Saturday) voting members of Synod and YMC Reps piled into a van and kicked it down to Sault Ste. Marie. We were all there to take part in our fall Youth Ministry Council meeting and fortunately we were able to work with the elections for a new Bishop of Algoma. Sadie and Brianna, both members of YMC, were there to vote and went through a long day of elections. According to a close friend of fellow YMC’rs, Charles (who is painfully smart), election of a Bishop is often long and complicated in the Diocese of Algoma.

thats lightening fast for algoma when you consider:
the first bishop of algoma it took three synods;
However, the last time the Archbishop of Moosonee was in the chair of an electoral synod, the provost of Trinity College in Toronto was elected bishop.
Can’t say that I knew that. Can’t really say that many knew that.
I am happy to announce that The Rev. Dr. Stephen Andrews is the Bishop Elect of the Diocese of Algoma. He won’t be moving into the Bishophurst immediately, as he is currently the President and Provost of Thorneloe University and has academic obligations before he is able to begin his new role as leader of our Diocese of Algoma.
This is a short story about the election process and results of Oct. 1st to the 4th from the Anglican Journal.
On behalf of the Thunder Bay Deanery Youth Unit, we wish the Andrews family the best of luck as they begin a new chapter in their lives!
