Lenten Regulations on Fast and Abstinence


During the Lenten Season, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday 

are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. 

In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.


For Catholics, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. 

When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, 

as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. 

The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members 

of the Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.
