Lenten Fasting Guidelines

 Good Friday is an obligatory day of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of 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 and two smaller meals that are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.


Viernes Santo es  un día obligatorio de ayuno y abstinencia para los católicos. Además, los viernes de Cuaresma son
días obligatorios de abstinencia.

Para los miembros de la Iglesia católica latina, las normas sobre el ayuno son obligatorias desde los 18 hasta los 59 años. Cuando se ayuna, se permite comer una comida completa y dos comidas más pequeñas que juntas no equivalen a una comida completa. Las normas sobre la abstinencia de carne son obligatorias para los miembros de la Iglesia católica latina a partir de los 14 años.


“My friends.. we must keep Lent…We are obliged to perform the penitential acts that are within our reach.”
Blessed Louis  Brisson OSFS
