Observing Fasting and Abstinence on Good Friday

Good Friday is a day of fasting and abstinence, a serious obligation for every Catholic. The law of abstinence requires all Catholics aged 14+ to abstain from eating meat. The law of fasting requires all Catholics aged 18-59 to reduce the amount of food eaten from normal. The Church understands this as one ordinary meal and two light meals, which if added together, do not exceed the main meal in quantity.

Confession Times


There is one more opportunity for confession on the North Shore before Easter on Monday, April 3 at 7:00 pm here at Christ the Redeemer. We will have at least 6 priests available to hear confessions. Don't delay in receiving Christ's mercy as we enter into Holy Week.
