Committed to Service: NYSJC’s 2020-2021 Fellows


Published in the issue.

This year, the New York Service + Justice Collaborative (NYSJC)—the New York affiliate of Episcopal Service Corps, a national network of intentional communities—welcomes a new cohort of Fellows from six states across the country. For the duration of their 11-month service, the six Fellows will live at Trinity Episcopal Church, Morrisania in the South Bronx, with which we are proud to continue our partnership for another year.

Amid the global pandemic, these committed and courageous young adults will begin their transformational service journey in New York City, discerning their individual paths as leaders of faith. Together, they will build a beloved community, supporting each other’s personal growth and development while connecting with the host church and broader parish community.

Their service will take the form of safe direct in-person work with vulnerable populations facing social and economic barriers, and virtual engagement through advocacy, or organizational infrastructure support. They will be living the gospel, finding themselves and their place in the world in the daily service of others. Weekly formation discussions of homelessness, food justice immigration, criminal justice, human trafficking will enrich their experiences, while deepening their spirituality.

Please join the NYSJC in welcoming them to New York City, and continue reading to learn more about each of them!
