Senior High Youth Mission Trip

asp team page

High school students in our parish will be participating in a youth mission project from July 19-27, 2014, traveling to Appalachia to work on home repairs for those in need through the Appalachia Service ProjectSM (ASP).

 

In the Appalachian region served by ASP one in every four residents lives below the poverty line, and over 50,000 households live on less than $10,000 per year.  On a daily basis, families need to make tough choices between food, clothing and medical supplies.  Often home repairs fall low on their list of priorities.  That’s where ASP and our Senior High Youth Mission Team come in to help.  We'll install insulation, repair porches, and reinforce foundations.  But ASP is more than just a building program - forging friendships is as important as swinging hammers.  We'll get to know the families we're serving, and we'll come home closer as a church family.  To learn more about ASP, visit www.ASPHome.org.

 

The Senior High Youth Mission Team will fundraising throughout the year to cover the expenses associated with the trip. We will prepare for our work in Appalachia by serving as a team on a day-long home repair project through Rebuilding Together. We also participate in Bible studies, sensitivity training and construction training sessions to ensure that the work we perform is done right and will have a lasting impact.

 

We need your help to make a lasting dent in Appalachian poverty. Here’s what you can do:

Confession

The main purpose of all fasts is the reunification with God, from whom we have been separated by our sins. We fast, abstain and pray with greater fervor in order to, with God's help, create in ourselves a spiritual condition which is conducive to genuine, contrite repentance. Having prepared ourselves through the effort of fasting, we come to confession. Yet the mere fact that we came to confession does not guarantee us automatic cleansing from our sins. Complete cleansing requires complete and correct repentance. It is with these facts in mind that we offer the following exhortation on confession. Before confession one should attempt to recall all the sins which one has committed voluntarily or involuntarily.

One must attentively re-examine one's life in order to recall not only those sins committed since the last confession, but also those which have not been confessed through forgetfulness. Then, with compunction and a contrite heart, approach the Cross and the Gospel and begin the confession of your sins.
