THE JUBILEE WAY
Join us on a virtual trip around the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast!
Engage your mind, soul and body, and learn about our diocese and our beloved Camp Beckwith.
This is a fundraising event sponsored by
St. Simon's On-the-Sound Episcopal Church in honor of our 50th Jubilee Celebration.
Proceeds will be divided three ways:
1/3 to Beckwith, 1/3 to the church with largest percentage of member participation, 1/3 to St. Simon's.
Registration is open September 1 to September 25.
Event runs from BayLights to Diocesan Convention, September 25, 2020 to February 25, 2021.
The cost is $50 per person, age 21 and over. Cost includes race registration, access to website/app, a great t-shirt designed to celebrate the Jubilee with all church names included, virtual postcards telling about each church and a donation to Camp Beckwith.
HOW DO I TRAVEL AROUND THE DIOCESE?
Our mission takes us about 540 miles from Beckwith back to Beckwith highlighting each of our 62 churches along the way.
This is a virtual event so your activities are uploaded to the site to show your progress. Enter your data manually or link your fitness account.
The miles you earn will move you along our mission path. Each church in our diocese has a marker. Each time you progress to the next marker you will receive a detailed postcard to learn something special that church and congregation!
ACTIVITIES FOR EVERYONE

CAN I REGISTER WITH FRIENDS?
Yes! You can register to complete the mission solo or as a team of 2, 3 or 4 people (each participant over 21 must register individually). Children participating with their parent(s) will count their activities as part of their parents(s) miles.
WHY IS ST. SIMON'S HOSTING THIS VIRTUAL MISSION?
Our world, along with our 50th Jubilee Celebration year has been disrupted by Covid-19. There has never been a better time to reconnect with yourself, with friends, with family and even with your church and diocesan families. So, we can take this time to nourish our minds, bodies and souls as we participate in activities that will take us virtually around the diocese and give us a glimpse of each church along the way!
