Students at Madonna CSS participated in the school's annual THINKFast 2017 through Development and Peace on Friday, February 24th, 2017. THINKFast is an interactive learning program designed for youth to experience the challenges of poverty and injustice in concrete ways. Students participated in a 25-hour educational and fundraising fast in order to show their solidarity and support with those dealing with poverty in the Global South and in their local community. During this one day activity, students took a stand against oppression and directly supported the notion for peace, justice, and development both locally and globally. 

 

The funds raised went to support Development and Peace's initiatives in areas such as Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. In addition, our students used their donations to purchase food and gift items for three families in our Madonna community. During the evening festivities, Madonna staff and students were pleased to welcome Luke Stocking and Greg Rogers, from Development and Peace and The WE Movement, to lead the students in hands-on workshops on sustainable development and experiential learning through service trips. 

 

Thank you Greg Rogers and Luke Stocking for your support in facilitating Madonna's THINKFast 2017!

 

Sincerely,

Chaplaincy Team
