Exciting News

IMG_8564_2Pardon me for taking a bit of a detour this week from the path of theological reflection I normally follow for my Daily Cups on Fridays, but I have some exciting news to share:  The Diocese of Washington is going to help make the ASP Mission Trip open to all of the youth in the diocese.  This means that churches that have smaller youth programs will be able to send their youth and adult leaders on ASP to experience how life-changing putting your faith into action in service to others can truly be.


This comes on the heels of the huge success of this past summer’s ASP Mission Trip  where St. Alban’s, St. Columba’s, and St. Margaret’s sent almost 50 youth and adult missioners–the largest group ever.  Once again, St. Alban’s is leading the way, this time with our youth and mission work in rural Appalachia helping to make homes warmer, safer and drier.


Please come and hear the stories that our youth and adult leaders will share about their time on ASP this summer at a special forum THIS SUNDAY after the 9:15 a.m. service.  Come and find out where our missioners found and were met by God.  Come and learn how you can be a part of next summer’s ASP Mission Trip being the hands, feet and hammers of Christ in the world.


See you on Sunday!

  1. How beautiful. How beautiful. I wish I was stronger and could work too. I can barely sit up and write two or three pages of a book on climate change. I wish I could hammer.
