EWTN Catholic Q&A
Confirmation during Lent
Question from Chris on 03-04-2013:

My daughter is making her confirmation this week and we will be having a small party afterwards. My family was wondering if they are "allowed" to eat what they gave up for Lent because we are celebrating her confirmation.

Answer by Catholic Answers on 03-04-2013:


Sure. Such Lenten penances are strictly voluntary and may be taken up and set aside at will.
