Activity for Teens – THINKfast on March 23-24, 2012

Every year, Confirmation candidates participate in THINKfast, a 24-hour fast organized by St. Mark’s Development and Peace group.  This year’s THINKfast takes place from March 23 to March 24.

THINKfast empowers youth to live their faith and make socially responsible decisions about how they live.Youth over 13 are welcome to join the THINKfast.  Through fun activities, participants will learn about poverty and social justice, while also raising funds for the work of Development and Peace.

THINKfast is an opportunity to observe the three Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. The group will spend 24 hours together – learning through fun games, hanging out, and taking time to pray.  On Saturday, March 24, participants will break the fast together right after the 7:00 Mass.

How can you become involved?

  • If you are a teen who would like to participate, or you want more information, please contact Chris Santillan .
  • If you would like to sponsor a participant and help us reach our $500 goal, you can place an on-line pledge. Check back regularly as participants sign up.

You could also support the group by keeping them in your prayers, both as they prepare for the THINKfast, and on March 23-24 when it is taking place.
