Ascension has had a long history of youth mission trips ranging from Appalachia Service Project (ASP), Mississippi (Gulf Coast Trip), to Young Neighbors in Action (YNIA) in Tijuana. Currently, we plan an annual ASP trip. Click on "SEE ALL" above to view our 2018 photos!
Around September each year Ascension Youth Ministry offers an information meeting. Attendance at this meeting is HIGHLY encouraged.
For the 2018 Trip: This year's meeting is in the Pine Room on Sunday Sept. 18, 2017 following the 9am and 11am Masses. The application forms can be found here. For those going on the trip, if you need the packing list, you can find it here.
Appalachia Service Project has been a beloved aspect of Ascension youth ministry for over 20 years. Decades ago this trip began with a small group of 5 vans totaling 35 people and has grown to 23 vans equaling 161 people. AYM usually goes to ASP the last full week of July, which is known as “week 7” to ASP-ers.
