Fasting & Abstinence Info

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and it is a day (along with Good Friday) that we need to fast and when we do eat, eat no meat.  We all have questions occasionally about this, so here are some websites with info that might help you: 

Women For Faith & Family has a great page with all the details and also a wonderful page devoted to special info on Lent & Ash Wednesday

Colin Donovan, STL at EWTN also explains the guidelines at their Fasting & Abstinence page

If you do Facebook, you might be interested in this Facebook page,  Catholic Lent:  It's More Than Just Giving Up Chocolate
