Welcome to FAST24

The FAST24 Experience is a weekend of Catholic faith renewal activities beginning with the Eucharistic Fast and culminating with the Eucharistic Feast.  During Lent, participants spend 24 hours fasting, praying, learning and growing in faith together.

The next FAST24 event will be held on 05 – 06 Apr 2019 at St Christopher’s Parish in Syndal (Melbourne), Victoria.

The 24-hour fast usually begins with the The Stations of the Cross on Friday evening, and finishes with the Holy (Vigil) Mass on Saturday evening the next day.  In between the Stations and the Mass, FAST24 participants journey together through a range of activities: e.g. workshops, group discussions/sharing, team-building, games, overnight sleepout/camping, meditative reflections, prayer, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament (Holy Hour) and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Before and after the fast, participants have supper together as a community.

“FAST24 has been such a great experience to become closer to God.  I enjoyed every part of FAST24. I learned the simplest things that can help me be a better person. I loved making the T-shirts and it was a great way to display how awesome FAST24 was. I was really surprised that the fasting didn’t affect me too much, and I was able to enjoy fasting because we did it together.  I would love to come back and do this again.”
