General Questions:

How much does GSP Cost?

The cost for each participant is $200. This covers meals, lodging, transportation to service sites, GSP t-shirts, and other retreat expenses.

Where is GSP held?

For the past five years we have been blessed by the hospitality of Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School in Spring Hill, Florida. We are excited to return again for the 2020 Good Samaritan Project. 

What service sites are GSP partnered with?

This list will continue to be updates as we partner with service sites.

How do I sign up?

Starting on May 15th, you will be able to access a link from our website to sign up electronically. 

My parish or school is not registered as going to GSP, can I still attend?

As GSP grows, it is increasingly important to foster relationships in church and school youth ministries. With that, our focus has moved from open enrollment to a parish and school based approach. 

If you are unable to register with your parish or school, we invite you to contact your parish's youth minister or director of faith formation to discuss options. 

Accommodation Questions:

Where do participants sleep?

GSP participants stay in classrooms and sleep on air mattresses. Air Mattresses are included in the cost for GSP and everyone will receive one to use for the week. 

How do you handle food allergies/considerations?


Please let your youth minister know if there are any allergy/food considerations prior to GSP. Our cook tries to be as accommodating as possible. Sometimes your assistance is needed in suggesting meal options and possibly bringing favorite or hard to find foods.

If a participant has an unusually severe or uncommon allergy, feel free to contact us before your retreat to work out a menu for that person.
