Urban Missionaries Lenten Fast - Fast of Hermas

This Lent, the staff and volunteers of the Urban Missionaries will be fasting in order to help fund our services to "the Least, the Last, and the Left Out." This is an expansion and continuation of our traditional Fast of Hermas. Now, many more staff and volunteers will be taking part!

Our prior fasts have been in honor of St. Hermas and undertaken during Holy Week. St. Hermas was an early christian who lived in Rome during the 2nd century. St. Hermas is believed to have written an early treatise on fasting, The Shepherd of Hermas.

For every $50, one of our staff and volunteers will fast for one day. You can either select who you would like to fast and for what day(s), or we will assign a random participant.

Please also feel free to make a donation of any amount to support our Lenten Fast.
