30-Hour Fast: High school retreat opportunity

High school students are invited to join us as we journey through Lent, bring a light to social justice and hunger in our community and world and have a little fun! We will be hosting a 30-Hour Fast on Friday and Saturday, Mar. 16-17. This will be an eye-opening experience that will allow us to see poverty in a new light, sacrifice as Jesus himself did for us, and find some time for personal reflection on Lent and what Christ’s Resurrection means to us.

No need to worry! There will be plenty of different options for the fast since we know everyone’s dietary needs are different!

Complete Fast – Fast from food for 30 hours starting at 12 p.m. on Friday, Mar. 16 until 6 p.m. on Saturday, Mar. 17.
Partial Fast – Limit yourself to one meal a day both on Friday after 12 p.m. and on Saturday before 6 p.m.
Snack Fast – Fast from snacking between meals on both Friday and Saturday.
Water is a must and we will supply plenty of water throughout both days!

When – Friday, Mar. 16 from 6-10 p.m. starting in the Parish Office Conference Room AND Saturday, Mar. 17 from 8 a.m. (start time depends on service project we will be working on) ending with a soup dinner after 4:30 p.m. Mass!

Cost – $35

9th and 10th graders – Participating in both days of this retreat will satisfy your retreat requirement for this year!
