Fasting

If you are between 18 and 60 years old, you are obligated to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday which means you may take one full meal on these days. You are allowed to snack, as long as these snacks do not constitute another full meal. If you are 14 or older, you are obligated to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all Fridays during Lent, and Good Friday. If health or ability to work is seriously affected, the law does not oblige. Talk to one of our priests if you need help discerning how you should fast this lent.
