Lenten Regulations for Fasting and Abstinence

For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken, but not to equal a full meal.  The rule for fasting applies on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.


The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.  Abstinence from meat is required on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and the Fridays of Lent.

Ash Wednesday and Lenten Schedule
