Our Name

ALP stands for Altum l’alto Pilgrimages. “Altum” is the Latin word for “deep” from Luke 5:4 when Christ tells Simon Peter “Duc in altum” which means “Put out into the deep”.  St. John Paul II is known for quoting this phrase. “L’alto” is Italian for “the heights” from Blessed Pier Giorgio’s phrase “Verso l’alto” which means “Towards the heights”.  We use these two words “Altum” and “l’alto” to signify “Deep heights”.

Our Logo

Our logo represents our name with an image of a mountain reflecting on the water to signify both the “deep” and the “heights”.
