  • Friday penance has a long history within the Catholic Church that is explained in this leaflet. 

    In September 2011, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales re-established the practice of abstinence from meat on Fridays. This is part of a rediscovery of traditions that go right back to the first-century Christians, and which helps us remember in a special way the day on which Jesus died. 

    This tradition of penance is clearly set out and further explained in a short and readable way in this leaflet.
