CHS Community to Participate in Day of Fasting Thursday, April 3

On Thursday, April 3, the Catholic High community will participate in a one-day fast with the other Brothers of the Sacred Heart schools in the New Orleans Province as a show of Lenten solidarity with the Brothers of the Sacred Heart mission school Amatongas in Mozambique.

Students and faculty will have the opportunity to eat a simple meal similar to one eaten often by the students at Amatongas. Participants in the fast will then abstain from eating until lunch on Friday, April 4. 

Additionally, a Rice Bowl collection will be held during the fast. All proceeds from our Rice Bowl collection will be donated to Mission Amatongas.  In conjunction with the fast, a prayer reflection opportunity will be offered after school in the Brothers’ chapel on April 3.
