LENTEN FASTING & ABSTINENCE
Ash Wednesday, February 14 & all Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence from meat for Catholics from age 14 onwards.
Ash Wednesday & Good Friday, March 30 are also obligatory days of fasting for Catholics from age 18 until age 59. When fasting a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. If possible, the fast on Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) as the “paschal fast” to honor the suffering & death of the Lord Jesus, & to prepare ourselves to share more fully & to celebrate more readily his Resurrection.
