The Rules for Roman Catholics in the United States:

In the United States, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has declared that "the age of fasting is from the completion of the eighteenth year to the beginning of the sixtieth." The USCCB also allows the substitution of some other form of penance for abstinence on all of the Fridays of the year, except for those Fridays in Lent. Thus, the rules for fasting and abstinence in the United States are:

  • Every person 14 years of age or older must abstain from meat (and items made with meat) on Ash WednesdayGood Friday, and all the Fridays of Lent.

  • Every person between the age of 18 and 60 must fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

For more information about Lent please click on this link to the
US Conference of Catholic Bishops website.
