In 2012 & 2013, All Saints Academy sent a group of parents, students, and teachers to Kingston Jamaica to serve the poor alongside the brothers at the Missionaries of the Poor with Father Richard Hulong. While the school may have closed its doors, its mission to persevere in faith and love is wide open! ASA is sponsoring another mission trip this summer.

Former ASA teacher, Allyson Young, and her husband, will be leading our group of 18 Triangle area youth and chaperones. While there, we will help care for the basic needs of the residents -- bathing, feeding, and serving the very poor and disabled in Jamaica. Our day will begin early at 5:45 am with morning prayer and end late with night prayer at 9 pm. While we are there, all our basic needs are provided for by the missionary Brothers and priests; we will be sleeping in their guest house and eating the food they provide, so the only money we have to raise is our flight & other related transportation costs, which will amount to about $600 for each missionary.

Can you help us raise this money by bidding on auction items? If we raise more than we need, we will donate it directly to the Missionaries of the Poor or buy supplies on their wish list. Want to see a Live Stream video about what we will be doing or do you want to know more about Missionaries of the Poor? Visit their website: www.missionariesofthepoor.org. There is a video right on the main page that tells all about it.

Thanks for helping us, and please pray for us on our trip.
