LENTEN FAST AND ABSTINENCE – During the season of Lent, the Church urges the faithful to reflect a spirit of penance in their daily lives through performing acts of faith and abstinence.
FASTING requires that only one full meal be taken per day.
Two other smaller meals may be taken during the day to
maintain physical strength, but these two meals together should
not equal a full meal in quantity. Fasting obliges all those who
have reached the age of 18 and continues to oblige through the
age of 59. Those who are not specifically obliged to fast are
encouraged to join in the discipline of fasting to the extent that
they are able.
ABSTINENCE prohibits individuals from eating meat on a
particular day. Abstinence obliges all those who have reached
the age of 14 and continues to oblige throughout their lives.
Those who are not specifically obliged to abstain from eating
meat are encouraged to join in the discipline of abstaining to the
extent that they are able.
ASH WEDNESDAY and GOOD FRIDAY are days of Fast and Abstinence as well as every Friday during Lent
