Hi, guys —

I'm getting conflicting answers.

  • Can you eat chicken during Lent?
  • I know this Church-wide Lenten penance may exclude children and the elderly but what about everyone else?


  { Can you eat chicken during Lent? }

Mary Ann replied:

Hi, Alma —

On Abstinence days during Lent:

  • Ash Wednesday and
  • the Fridays of Lent

one does not eat meat.

Meat has traditionally included fowl, even though older linguistic usage distinguished the two.

So, No chicken, turkey, duck, partridge, or crow on those days! : )

Mary Ann
