Blessed Mother Teresa Students Fast Against Hunger

BMT's 1st Annual Fast Against Hunger was a huge success! 
 
20 student participants from Blessed Mother Teresa Catholic Secondary School participated in an overnight fast on Friday, June 6th to Saturday, June 7th.  
 
Students fasted for 17 hours in order to raise money and awareness for local families in need. They participated in a variety of activities including: team building exercises, grocery shopping, preparing baskets for BMT families, organizing canned food for the society of St. Vincent de Paul, and preparing 10 pasta casseroles for the Provide-A-Meal Program by the Good Shepherd Ministries. 
 
This initiative will provide a meal for over 100 less fortunate people in downtown Toronto as well as provide groceries and other necessities to four local families in need! 
 
Students had the opportunity to reflect on the meaning of Christian service. 
 
Following the school's mission of "Amare et Servire," students were encouraged to recognize that is through serving others that we can truly love them!
