Information about Fast and Abstinence from the USCCB:
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.

Stations off the Cross will be prayed each Friday evening beginning at 6 o’clock. The stations will conclude with benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. More information on the calendar.
