The Light is On For You

Each Catholic parish in the Diocese of Arlington and the Archdiocese of Washington will have Confessions available every Wednesday evening, from 6:30pm-8pm. If you have been reluctant to come to the Sacrament or have been away for some time, this is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with Christ and His Church. Learn more at https://thelightison.org/


ABSTINENCE AND FASTING

Everyone over 14 years of age is bound to observe the law of abstinence. ABSTINENCE from meat is to be observed on all Fridays within the season of Lent and Passiontide and on Ash Wednesday.
On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, everyone over 18 and up to the beginning of their 60th year is also bound to observe the law of FAST. On these two days, only one full meatless meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs; but together they should not equal another full meal.
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, therefore, are the only days of both fast and abstinence.
