Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.  For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken, but not to equal a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.

Additional Masses are scheduled, as needed,
for Holy Days of Obligation and Holidays.

For more than 140 years, St. Joseph's Catholic Church has stood in the shadow of the Capitol Dome, at the top of the Hill. Before there were buildings to house the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress or even offices for America's elected representatives, there were two institutions that stood side by side on Capitol Hill - the United States Capitol and St. Joseph's Church.
