Fast and Abstinence Lenten Regulations

Based on the l983 Code of Canon Law, the following are the regulations for Lent:

Refrain from eating meat at all meals on that day.
All persons who are 14 years of age or older are bound by the law of abstinence. Ash Wednesday is a day of Abstinence as are all Fridays during Lent.

Only one full meal. The other two meals small enough that, together, they do not equal one full meal. The law of fasting binds all persons who are
between the ages of 18 and 59, inclusive. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of Fasting.

Catholics are especially encouraged to perform acts of penance during the season of Lent.
Lenten regulations begin on the morning of Ash Wednesday and continue through Holy Thursday. Good Friday has its own rule of fast and abstinence.


Get Mass on Television or Radio In the absence of live Mass, you can listen to it from St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Sirius XM’s Catholic Channel (M-F at 7:00 A.M., Sunday at 10:00 A.M.), and on EWTN at a variety of times each day.
