Listen to the Spirit's call and sign up for 'Daniel Fasting', starting on August 1, 2020, a Shalom Ministry initiative. Shalom Media is a catholic ministry that works with the church to evangelize those who do not know Christ and strengthen those who are in Christ through all means of media. “I ate no savory food, took no meat or wine, and did not anoint myself at all until the end of the three weeks” (Daniel 10:3). Fr. Roy Palatty CMI (Spiritual Director, Shalom Media) will be leading this initiative. Registration is free. For more details : http://www.shalommedia.org/danielfasting | Download poster
