Fasting in October


We are fasting for peace and unity and reconciliation. The fast will take place each of the five Fridays in October. The fast will include abstinence from food for a 24-hour period of time, starting at sunset Thursday evening and breaking at sunset Friday evening. The fast will be broken with the Eucharist each Friday at 5:30 pm. The food abstained from will be up to you, but we encourage you to be as rigorous as your medical condition and age allow. A fast is most successful if it is well planned in advance. This planning includes food and drink conditions of the fast, prayers and prayer times, and accountability partners to walk with throughout the fast.
