The Catholic Church asks each member to preserve the penitential character and purpose of Lent. For this reason:
• Catholics who have celebrated their 14th birthday
are bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and each Friday of Lent.
• Catholics who have celebrated their 18th birthday,
in addition to abstaining from meat, should fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
Hence, on those days they should eat only one full meal. Smaller quantities of food
may be taken at two other meals, but no food should be consumed at other times
during those two days. The obligation of fasting ceases with the celebration of one’s
Catholics should not lightly excuse themselves from these
prescribed minimal penitential practices.
Sign up in the Gathering Place for any of these small group offerings so that you can. . .
