Since the Solemnity (Solemn Feast Day) of Saint Joseph, March 19, falls on a Friday this Lent, the law of abstinence from meat and meat products does not apply on Friday, March 19 this year (per Canon 1251). Thank you, St. Joseph! Start planning your menu now. But, remember to add St. Joseph to your prayers. Click here for a prayer suggestion from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
