St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Friday in Lent this year.  Archbishop Sample has confirmed that local pastors can dispense in individual cases from the obligation to abstain from meat on Friday, March 17, 2017.  Typically, when a dispensation is given, the faithful would be asked to abstain from meat on another day that week or to offer another sacrifice or work of mercy instead.  No general dispensation has been granted for the Archdiocese of Portland.
