Sign up for a Lenten Monday Holy Hour


Catholics ages 18 to 59 are called to fast on Ash Wednesday and on Good Friday.  Fasting on these days means we can have only one full, meatless meal.  Some food can be taken at the other regular meal times if necessary, but combined they should be less than a full meal.  Liquids are allowed at any time, but no solid food should be consumed between meals.

Abstaining from meat during Lent is a penitential practice.  On the Fridays of Lent, we refrain from eating meat as we remember the sacrifice of Christ on Good Friday and unite ourselves with that sacrifice through abstinence and prayer.  All Fridays in Lent are days of abstinence.
