Letter Writing Campaign

Participants are asked to share why we are going to Appalachia with the surrounding community. We send out letters to local businesses and friends that would be willing to donate financially or in-kind to help support our trip.

Stock Sales

Participants on ASP sell “stock” in our program to allow parishioners to invest in our teens. The return on that investment is priceless as you hear the stories of returning ASPers.

Lamb Cakes

Cute and delicious lamb cakes are prepared just in time for Easter. Teens decorate the cakes in very unique ways! Lamb cakes are sold for $20 a cake and can be picked up from the Ascension Gym on Holy Saturday.

Flower Sale

To help brighten up spring, plants and flowers will be available in May in a multitude of colors and varieties. Orders can be picked up from the Ascension Gym the weekend of Mother's Day.

Bake Sale

Teens bake yummy treats to sell to help support Youth Ministry.

Teens will be in the Parish Center parking lot helping to clean the dirt from your cars! This fun and entertaining event helps us to demonstrate our hard work ethic and leaves you with a shiny car.
