The next atlSERVE June 24-27 All Saints' Atlanta Cost: $250
In 2012, All Saints' Atlanta and Holy Innocents' came together for a week of service. The focus of their work was to provide service opportunities for middle and high school youth that focused on the importance of prayer, serving others, being served, and seeing God in everyday life. Last year, they partnered with the Diocese. We now provide this week for all middle and high school youth. Once open, registration is available on the calendar page.You can find an event flyer on our event resources page.
Parishes are not required to send chaperones. We staff the week with experienced Youth Workers that receive special training on how to facilitate a service week. They all receive background checks and are Safeguard certified. Parishes may send chaperones if needed for parish participation.
Youth live in the youth space of All Saints' Atlanta for the week. This is state-of-the-art youth space that has a basketball court, movie screen, pool tables, ping pong tables, kitchen, 2 shower per sex, and ample sleeping space. The space is secured at night by on site security. An nightly alarm is set at curfew.
