LENTEN PRACTICES

ABSTINENCE:  Everyone fourteen years of age and older is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, FRIDAYS in Lent, and Good Friday.

FAST:  Everyone between eighteen years and sixty is also bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Fasting helps us unclutter our minds and hearts of excesses so that we can focus and reflect on our ongoing conversion.
