Church Laws for Fast and Abstinence

Fasting- Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are permitted one full meal and two lessor meals per day, which together should not equal one full meal, with no eating between meals.

Abstinence- Catholics who are 14 years or older should abstain from meat entirely. Soups and gravies made from meat are permitted.

Ash Wednesday: Day of Fasting and Abstinence

All Fridays in Lent: Days of Abstinence

Good Friday: Day of Fasting and Abstinence

Holy Saturday: Since the Paschal Feast is Good Friday and Holy Saturday, the faithful are encouraged to also observe Holy Saturday as a Day of Fasting and Abstinence
