Lenten Season

The holy season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes on Holy Thursday with the celebration of the evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper. Lent is a preparation for the celebration of Easter. The Lenten liturgy disposes  the faithful to celebrate the Paschal Mystery, the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.

Abstinence From Meat And Fasting During Lent

The Bishops of the United States prescribe, as a minimal obligation, that all persons who are fourteen years of age and older are bound to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday, on all the Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday.  Further, all persons eighteen years of age and older, up to and including their fifty-ninth birthday, are bound to fast by limiting themselves to a single full meal on Ash Wednesday and on Good Friday, while the other two meals on those days are to be light.  Keeping a voluntary fast throughout Lent is encouraged on the part of all.
