Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of universal fast and abstinence. Fasting is obligatory for all who have completed their 18th year until the beginning of their 60th year. Fasting allows a person to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may be taken, not to equal one full meal. Abstinence (from meat) is obligatory for all who have  completed their 14th year of age (c. 1252). If possible, the fast on Good Friday is    continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) as the “paschal fast” to honor the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus and to prepare ourselves to share more fully and celebrate more readily his Resurrection (see Sacrosanctum Concilium, 109). Fridays in Lent are obligatory days of abstinence (from meat) for all who have  completed their 14th year. As always, anyone for whom fasting or abstinence would pose a health risk is excused

 About SMIP 
 Saint Mary's Immigration Program is a ministry of Saint Mary's Cathedral.  It was begun by request of the Bishop in response the to the immigration raids at the local meatpacking plant on December 12th, 2007.  Implementing the U.S. bishops' teaching on justice for immigrants, SMIP helps prepare and process immigration paperwork for significantly less cost than a private attorney.  St. Mary's Cathedral is proud to provide these services to all immigrants and to help create good citizens and workers for the United States of America.  

The Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC) begun by the Catholic bishops of the United States to enhance and expand delivery of legal services to indigent and low-income immigrants principally through diocesan immigration programs and to meet the immigration needs identified by the Catholic Church in the United States.  CLINIC assists Saint Mary's Immigration Program in achieving its mission.  

SMIP has been accredited by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) since 2008, through the Recognition & Accreditation Program.  Client Representatives also receive individual accreditation by the BIA after receiving extensive training and submitting detailed application information for approval by the board.  Representatives continue their education in immigration law and procedure after accreditation.
