LENTEN REGULATIONS
Abstinence
from meat is to be observed by all Catholics 14 years and older on Good Friday, and all Fridays of Lent

Fasting is to be observed on Good Friday by all Catholics over the age of  18 but not yet 59. Those bound by this may only take only one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted.

Catholics should not lightly excuse themselves from these prescribed minimal practices.

(Those who are ill, pregnant, on medication or special diets for health concerns, or those who work at extremely physical jobs may be exempt from these regulations)
