Lenten Fast and Abstinence Regulations

Ash Wednesday is fast approaching on February 14th. The following are the guidelines for fasting and abstinence: No meat on Ash Wednesday and the Fridays of Lent for those 14 and older. Are required by church law. Also Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting. Those between the ages of 18-59 should eat less, meaning, take no solid food between meals and only one full meal that day. Serious health conditions excuse a person from these precepts. Parents are encouraged by the law of the church to ensure that minors who are not bound by the law of fast and abstinence are educated nonetheless.
