Fasting for Love is a sacrificial project that the parish promotes every year during Lent. It consists of donating the monetary equivalent of two meals that Catholics are bound to give up, one on Ash Wednesday and the other on Good Friday. The money collected through this initiative will be forwarded in its entirety to the Fanciscan Mission in Central America in order to support a hospital, a residence for abandoned children and a nursing home for the poor elderly. They rely solely on the charity of good people. The name of the center is “Obras Santo Hermano Pedro” in the city of Antigua, Guatemala. Thank you for sharing in this worthy cause.
