THINKfast is our parish’s annual social justice event for youth, which aims to help participants learn more about a particular issue facing the world’s poor and what we can do to make a difference from here in Canada.

This year’s theme is “Let Justice Flow”. Water is necessary for survival and for so many of our basic daily tasks, and access to clean and affordable water is recognized as a basic human right. However, for billions of people around the world, this right is not being fulfilled, leading to all sorts of challenges. Through a variety of activities like games, simulations, videos, and prayer, we’ll explore these struggles and our own relationship with water to help us better understand how we might help to bring about change.

Participants will also fast from solid foods for 24 hours as a reminder of those who must go without their basic needs every day and to join with them in solidarity.
