ASH WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 18, 2015
As we approach our annual Lenten fast, please keep the following in mind: Masses 6:30 AM, 9 :00 AM, 12 Noon, 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM
Fast and Abstinence
All persons who have reached their 14th birthday are bound by the law of abstinence. All adults are bound bythe law of fast up to their 60th year. The current canonical discipline of penance for the United States, in addition to the general character of the Lenten season, may thus be summed up:
∗ Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of abstinence from meat and also days of fast; that is, limited to a single full meal.
∗ The other Fridays of Lent remain days of abstinence from meat.
∗ The Fridays of the year outside Lent remain days of penance, but each individual may substitute for the traditional abstinence from meat by using some other practice of voluntary self-denial or personal penance; this may be physical mortification or temperance or acts of religion, charity, or Christian witness.
