Lenten Fasting Chain

Many parish members participate in our Lenten Fasting Chain, during which each parishioner has the opportunity to fast for a day. They then pass the fast on to the next person in the chain. The money which they would have spent on food for a day is donated to Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry.

Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry

Parishioners are encouraged to bring non-perishable food each Sunday as part of our weekly offering. These basics are taken to the pantry each week for distribution to the hungry in Hancock County. St. Dunstan’s is one of several churches and organizations who participate in this spiritual practice. Our parish takes on the responsibility for the administration of the pantry every May.
