Lenten Observances

Fast: Everyone who has made their First Communion should fast at least on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.  Depending on a person's health and duties, fasting means skipping at least one meal.  For some people, just skipping snacks may be more than enough of a sacrificial experience.

Abstinence: Everyone who has made their First Communion should abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent.  Abstinence is recommended for all the Fridays throughout the year.

Almsgiving: Everyone who has made their First Communion should practice the spiritual and corporal works of mercy on all the days of Lent.

Confession: Everyone who has made their First Communion should go to Confession during Lent as part of their Easter Duty.
