REGARDING FAST AND ABSTINENCE
Abstinence from meat (beef, pork, lamb or poultry) is to be observed by all Catholics 14 years old and older on Ash Wednesday and on all the Fridays of Lent. This obligation prohibits the eating of meat, but not eggs, milk products, or condiments of any kind, even though made from animal fat.
Fasting means limiting oneself to one full meal on a given fast day. Catholics who are 18 years of age but not yet 59 are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. On fast days, two additional smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength. However, the two smaller meals together may not equal one full meal. Moreover, eating solid foods between meals on fast days is not permitted.

We are the Catholic Community of Copperas Cove, a city of some 35,000 people in central Texas and part of the Diocese of Austin. Our city and our parish have a special relationship to the United States Army at adjacent Fort Hood.
We are a community united by our Faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We raise our minds in prayer-both liturgical and private. The poor and those in need are our special concern. We strive to educate and to form our children and ourselves in the teachings of Jesus as entrusted by Him to the Apostles and their successors in the Holy Catholic Church. In a spirit of ecumenism, we join with other groups in mutual endeavors.
We invite and welcome others to join our community of Faith. Generously, we give of our "Time, Talent and Treasure" to fulfill this mission.
