Looking Ahead to Lent

Abstinence:  Catholics (14 and older) abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday and Fridays during Lent.  

Fasting:  Also, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting; those between the ages of 18-59 should eat less, meaning take no solid food between meals and only one full meal that day.

Parents are encouraged to ensure that minors who are not bound by the law of fast and abstinence are educated nonetheless in an authentic sense of penance.
