Ember Days

Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday (September 21, 23, and 24) are Ember Days. On these days we are encouraged to reduce our food intake such that two smaller meatless meals do not add up to a third larger meal. This is not binding under sin. Ember Days are offered up for those who will be ordained to the priesthood during the year and are therefore very beneficial to the Church.
