Episcopal Vacation Exchange
The Episcopal Vacation Exchange Network (EVENet)
Purpose and Process
The purpose of the Episcopal Vacation Exchange (EVENet) is to facilitate the exchange of homes among Anglican/Episcopal clergy for vacation purposes.
Begun in 1981 as the Episcopal Vacation Exchange (EVE), this service has been coordinated on a non-profit basis by a succession of clergy. The current coordinator is the Rev. Ken Howard. Ken is the Rector of St. Nicholas Episcopal Church in Darnestown, Maryland, USA.
EVENet is operated entirely on-line. This enables the service to operate much more efficiently than the former snail-mail-based service and at little or no cost. Participants submit an e-mail application form which describes their family, their homes, and their vacation plans. These descriptions are consolidated into a single newsletter which is e-mailed to all participants. Participants then contact each other directly to negotiate vacation plans.
None. As long as there are no costs incurred in operating EVENet, there will be no charge to participate. (However, if participants wish to contribute to St. Nicholas Episcopal Church, on whose website this service is hosted, they may do so at the SaintNicks.com website.)
Copy the web-based application form (or request an application form via e-mail) . Then complete and return the form via e-mail. Paper forms are be accepted.
