I might be wrong but I think we are taught that fasting is not permitted between Easter and Pentecost; but what happens if an ordination takes place during that time? For example, if a Deacon was Ordained a Priest before Pentecost Day, does that mean he is not permitted to start his 40 days fasting and retreat until the day after Pentecost or can he begin his fast immediately after his ordination (within the Easter season)?

The newly ordained priests and bishops do not fast during the Holy Fifty Days.
