Suggested Donation: $5
Registration closes 3 business days prior to program.

Discover or rediscover that fasting is a practice with many benefits for our body, mind and soul. Fasting has long been a tradition and spiritual practice of many faiths including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and others. With the coming of the observance of Lent, this is a time to reacquaint ourselves with this practice.
Come and join a conversation about personal fasting experiences and understandings of this rich spiritual practice.   

“… fasting is a way of communication with God and a way of caring for God’s personal gift to us – ourselves.”  … Pat Dominic in the book Fasting Rediscovered by Thomas Ryan.
