Current Church Regulations on Fasting and Abstinence

  • Fasting is required of all Catholics age 18-59 only two days each year: Ash Wednesday and Good Friday (it is recommended that the Good Friday fast carry over to Holy Saturday until the Easter Vigil service, as well).
  • On these days only one full meal is allowed, with two smaller meals as needed.
  • Eating solid food between meals is not allowed.
  • Abstinence from meat is required of all Catholics over age 14 on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
  • In the United States, the bishops have asked Catholics over the age of 14 to abstain from meat on all Fridays of Lent, as well.
  • These regulations are considered to be a serious obligation for all Catholics. However, those who are ill, pregnant, on medication or special diets for health concerns, or those who must work at extremely physical jobs may be exempt from these regulations.
