ABSTINENCE is observed on Ash Wednesday and ALL Fridays of Lent by everyone 14 years of age and older. On days of abstinence,  no meat is allowed. 

** When one’s health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. If a person is unable to observe the above regulations due to health or other serious reasons, other suitable forms of self-denial are encouraged.
