Presentation: Fasting -a Fresh Look

March 1, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Ever tried to explain the Catholic regulations on fasting to a Muslim, Jew, or a Hindu? Save yourself the smirk that says, “You’ve got to be kidding!” Somehow “one full meal and two lesser ones not equaling it” doesn’t cut it as a “fast day”. Perhaps their response helps explain why the practice has lost currency among Catholics. Join us for a fresh look at an old practice-one that finds a place in every religion of the world, and has a powerfully distinctive “spin” in its Christian expression.

This will be the 6th session in the 7-month Take Back Your Time series in holistic spirituality offered by Fr. Tom Ryan, CSP. Thursday, March 1st, 7-8:15pm (Suggested donation $10 – $5 students).
