Diocese of Indianapolis Bishop Cate Waynick blesses an Episcopal Youth Event 2014 participant during the EYE14 opening Eucharist July 10. During the distribution of communion Waynick got clipped on her stole by another EYE member. Rather than give away diocesan pins, some delegations clipped people with clothes pins on which they had written blessings, prayers and welcome messages. Some groups urged recipients to add the name of their diocese and then clip someone else with the pin. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service
