Fasting and Abstinence

Abstinence from Meat

All Catholics 14 years and older must abstain from meat on the Fridays of Lent, Ash Wednesday, and Good Friday. The law of abstinence prohibits eating the flesh, marrow, and blood products of such animals and birds as constitute flesh meat. In earlier times, the law of abstinence also forbade such foods that originated from such animals, such as milk, butter, cheese, eggs, lard, and sauces made from animal fat. This restriction is no longer in force in the Roman rite. Vegetables as well as fish and similar cold-blooded animals (frogs, clams, turtles, etc.) may be eaten. Amphibians are relegated to the category to which they bear most striking resemblance.



All Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59, are to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. The Church's current law of fasting permits only one full meal per day, and two lighter meals that together equal less than a full meal. While the consumption of solid food between meals is forbidden, liquids, including tea, coffee and juices, may be taken at any time.

The Eucharistic fast is for one hour before reception of Holy Communion and allows the taking of water and medicine only.

Mass Intentions

It has long been a custom in the Catholic Church to have a Mass offered for someone who is deceased or for a special intention (i.e. for the recovery of one who is ill, an anniversary or birthday, or for a special prayer). The priest then makes it his intention during Mass to remember the particular request made.


At St. Mary's, we celebrate sixteen Masses each week. While our Masses are often well attended, most of the people present are visitors from other nearby parishes. Because of this, we have many Masses without scheduled intentions through most of the year.


If you would like to have a Mass offered, you may call or stop by the parish office during regular business hours or drop a note in the collection basket. Cards are provided on request by the parish to send to the family of the deceased or to the person for whom the Mass is offered. We publish the Mass intentions each week in our parish bulletinThe usual offering for a Mass intention in our ecclesiastical province is $10.00.


While it is not required for the priest to announce the intention at Mass, at St. Mary's our priests normally do. The intention of the Mass is the priest's prayer for the Mass, but not necessarily the prayer of the entire community. Each person present brings to the Eucharist his or her own prayers or special intentions to offer to God as well.

Mission Statement

St. Mary Catholic Cathedral is a historic downtown parish and the seat of the Diocese of Colorado Springs. We comprise a diverse community of believers committed to serve and welcome all people.
