About Alaska Catholic Mission
Parish Teams of 2 adults and up to 10 middle/junior high school teens are invited. Each parish team needs to provide their own transportation. Each team will work together to work at assigned service sites throughout the three-day event. There may be some sites that require the work of multiple or all parish teams together. Teams will be informed of the sites ahead of time and will need to prepare accordingly by planning what to wear and what to bring. For example, if the work site includes gardening, team members may need to bring gloves, rakes, hoes, and other useful items for gardening.

7:30 a.m. Breakfast and lunch preparation

Please connect with your parish’s designated youth ministry leader first, so each parish may plan accordingly and build their parish teams.
In light of all of the current circumstances grabbing our attention and creating some uncertainty, the Archdiocese of Anchorage has chosen to postpone online registration for ACYC and the Alaska Catholic Mission until April 1. Hopefully, matters will be a bit more settled by then.
