Our Good Shepherd teens participated in a 30 hour famine that began at Midnight on Ash Wednesday and ended, with a breaking of the fast, on Thursday morning at 6:30 am. Our Knights of Columbus prepared a feast of pancakes and breakfast burritos and our very hungry teens were grateful for the food and fellowship. Many of our teens attended Mass on Ash Wednesday at 6:30 am and then went to school with ashes on their foreheads. They were prepared for the questions and stares they received from their peers. Most were asked “Did you know you had something on your forehead?’ while others were asked questions regarding the significance of the ashes.
Our teens were on trend, Ash Wednesday selfies were prominent on twitter. What a great way to evangelize our faith. Even the USCCB was requesting twitter followers to submit selfies for a photo collage.
