Lenten Chain Fast:  This year, as in some previous years, St. Dunstan’s will have a Lenten Chain Fast. It will begin on Ash Wednesday, March 5, and continue until Easter. In this chain, the fast is passed from person to person, each person fasting for the designated day and then calling the nest person on the chain to pass the fast on. Money that would otherwise be spent on food is then donated to a charity to be selected later. You can sign up for this chain either at church or by calling up the coordinator, Diana Gazis (422-3697) to find a day.
