Note on st. patrick’s day

March 9, 2017

The feast of St. Patrick, March 17, is a solemnity within the Archdiocese of San Francisco. St. Patrick is the principal co-patron of the archdiocese. March 17, 2017, is a Friday. While normally Lenten observance requires abstinence from meat on the Fridays of Lent, canon law includes the exception: “unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday” (Canon 1251); therefore, within the bounds of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, the faithful are not required to abstain from meat on March 17, 2017.
