LENT / HOLY WEEK SCHEDULE

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics.
For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59.
When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal.
Every person 14 years of age or older must abstain from meat (and items made with meat).
