Bishop Lifts Fasting Obligations

News Release
Catholic Diocese of San Angelo

For Catholics in the Diocese of San Angelo, Bishop Michael Sis has dispensed from the obligation of fasting and abstinence on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021, and Friday, Feb. 19, 2021.
This is because of the conditions of the current winter storm.

 Many people are without electricity, water, and heat, and driving conditions are hazardous in many areas. This leads to a limited availability of food options. This dispensation is in light of canon 87§1.
Please pray for all those impacted by this storm.
