What is Hunger Strike?
Hunger Strike is a pan-Orthodox youth ministry retreat hosted by St. Paul’s. Hunger Strike helps teens to identify with the poor and respond compassionately to those living in harsh conditions in developing countries and in their local communities. Participating teens gain a deeper understanding of their Orthodox faith and a closer relationship to Jesus Christ and each other. Retreat attendees fast for 30 hours while they participate in activities to raise both awareness and money for the needs of those throughout the world who suffer the effects of poverty and who hunger for the hope found in Christ.
