To give you an idea of what ASP means to the people that go on the trip please read the following from Tess Vanek, one of our high school seniors going on her fourth trip this year.

My Freshman year on ASP, I had no idea what to expect as the white vans pulled out of the Parish Office parking lot. I knew we would be traveling down to rural Kentucky and helping to repair the homes of families less fortunate than us. I wasn’t expecting the trip to be an experience that would stay with me, but that is just what it turned out to be.
