2019 Lenten Regulations

FASTING

*  Catholics aged 18 through 59 are bound to fast on both Ash Wednesday (March 6) & Good Friday (April 19) 

*   To fast means to consume one full meal a day at most, al-though taking of other, smaller quantities of food at other customary mealtimes is permitted.  Food and drink between meals (except water and medicine) is not permitted on fast days.

ABSTINENCE FROM MEAT

*  Catholics aged 14 and up are to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday.

* To abstain means refraining from eating beef, veal, pork, or poultry at least, although eggs and milk products are acceptable.  The consumption of fish and shellfish is permitted, though the penitential character of the abstinence should be kept in mind.
