Because about 1 billion of our own brothers and sisters throughout the world live in poverty and hunger.
5-7 million children die of hunger each year, which is about 20,000 each day.
Our Holy Father Pope Francis has asked us to do something about this, as brothers and sisters who care and have the means to help. He has established a foundation to help end world hunger: "One Human Family, Food for All."
We will begin our 24-hour fast at 3:30pm on Tuesday, March 24. We will end the fast with a pizza party at 3:15pm on Wednesday, March 25, which is the Solemnity of the Annunciation.
Everyone! To sign up, click the link above.
All those who want to participate in the fast simply need to collect 24 dollars ($1 for each hour) to donate to help end world hunger. You can sign up from the link above, during lunches and advisories in the week before the fast.
When and where do I turn in my money?
Monies will be collected in the week before the fast (March 17-21) during all the lunches. The money is due on March 21.
Listen and watch Pope Francis' message to the world concerning our hungry brothers and sisters.
