Fasting for Lent

Can fasting for Lent serve others? This Lenten season, the Stretching Into Justice team will be collecting monetary donations on Sundays to support the Brookline Food Pantry. We're encouraging people to donate the money that they might spend on daily luxuries as a form of Lenten fasting--whether that's your daily Starbucks run or the sandwich you buy at the deli every day. Your small "fast" can help feed others! Of course, donations are welcomed even from those not engaging in any fasting. Place any donations in the purple boxes marked "Fast to Share," or find a member of the Stretching team. As always, non-perishable donations for the Food Pantry are also welcomed and can be placed in the wicker baskets around the church. Contact Seminarian Anna Burnham at with any questions.
