Saint Patrick's Day - Friday, March 17

posted Mar 8, 2017, 11:33 AM by Dianne Gavin   [ updated Mar 8, 2017, 11:52 AM ]

St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, falls on a Friday this year.  Cardinal Cupich has given a general dispensation to Catholics from abstaining from meat on this day.  Instead, Catholics in the Archdiocese of Chicago who choose to make use of this general dispensation are asked to substitute another form of penance for the Lenten Friday abstinence.
