The start of the 2024 Lenten season begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14th. 

…A day for sacrifice, sorrow and reparation for sins, giving of alms due to gratitude, and remembrance that this world leads us to eternity.

2024 Diocesan Lenten Regulations:

  • Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fast and abstinence.
  • All Fridays in Lent are days of abstinence.
  • Fasting means eating only one full meal with two smaller meals, which together do not equal the full meal. No snacks or eating between meals. Fasting obliges Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59.
  • Abstinence means eating no meat nor soup nor gravy made from meat. Abstinence obliges all Catholics over the age of 14. Sickness, hard manual labor, pregnancy, etc., automatically excuse a person from these obligations.
  • Nevertheless, it should be pointed out that these are serious obligations. In cases of doubt or question, the priest who hears a person’s confession should be consulted.
