What is YASP? Is it a gasp? Is it a whispered "Yeah" (in Tagalog, "pigil" pero "gigil")? Or is it a new term that kids aged 14-25 could relate to this summer?

Y.A.S.P. actually stands for Youth Alive Summer Program, which will be held at St. Benedict's Parish inside Don Antonio Heights, Quezon City. The sessions start on April 17, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. Youth Alive! is the youth ministry of the Missionaries of God's Love in Manila and is headed by Fr. Brian Steele, mgl. Fr. Steve Tynan, our parish priest and Fr. Geoffrey Coombe, our assistant parish priest, are resource speakers, along with young volunteers from different communities and ministries in and around the parish.

Each session is packed with songs, presentations, movies, snacks, and discussions. We'll talk about topics for Christian youth - God's love, Jesus Christ's life and mission , the power of the Holy Spirit, and the new life that is ours for the taking. We'll learn to pray, dance, and sing. We'll also have picnics, games, and outings.

If you are within that age group (14-25) and live near Don Antonio Heights, do drop by on Tuesday April 17. We'll meet every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, until May 31. The sessions build on one another so you are encouraged to attend them all.

We're also looking for generous sponsors. If you are moved to donate light snacks for approximately 60-80 people, kindly get in touch with me at ASAP.

Thank you. See you at the YASP '07!
