Lent Guidlines

The Church has always helped us fulfill these words of Jesus by prescribing very definite penance for all Catholics so that we too might have Eternal life.

Accordingly, the Pope and the American Bishops have outlined obligatory fast and abstinence as follows:

Ash Wednesday & Good Friday

Ash Wednesday (Wednesday, March 6) and Good Friday (April 19,) are days of abstinence for all Catholics over the age of 14.

On these two days, fast, as well as abstinence, is also obligatory for those from the ages of 18-59.

  • Abstinence means refraining from meat.
  • Fast means one full meal a day, with two smaller meals and nothing between meals (liquids are permitted).

No Catholic should lightly excuse himself or herself from this obligation.

All Fridays in Lent

All Fridays in Lent are days of abstinence from meat. Here again, Catholics will not hold themselves lightly excused, but if there is a serious health problem, this obligation would not apply.
