Jr. & Sr. High School Youth Challenge! Are you willing to go without food or drink for 25 hours? Do you think this can change you? St. Stephen Protomartyr Ukrainian Catholic Church is the place to find out!
THINKfast is an interactive learning experience designed for youth that will help you and your friends experience the challenges of poverty and injustice in concrete ways.
By participating in this 25-hour educational and fundraising fast, you stand in solidarity with those who need our support both through financial support to projects they are leading, and through a greater understanding of the structures that perpetuate poverty and injustice.
Invite your friends. Challenge each other to become more than you thought you could be. Even challenge your parents to fast, too!
Come for Divine Liturgy at 9:00am Saturday, Oct. 24 and ask Holy Spirit to prepare your mind, body and heart. Then settle in for a time of discussions, fun (yes, you can have fun when your stomach is growling) and reflection.
On Sunday, October 25 you will attend morning Divine Liturgy before breaking your fast at noon.
The weekend events will be facilitated by Namisha Hlus, Eparchy of Edmonton. Contact: Dan Oryschak, Youth Director at daniel [dot] oryschak [at] gmail [dot] com or 403-700-0220.
