Halocho #1112 - Should we fast on Thursday?

Some people have the custom of adding the Yom Kippour Katan prayers during Mincha on the day before Rosh Chodesh. 

Some even fast on Erev Rosh Chodesh to atone for the sins of the past month. 

Source: Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 97:1 

When Rosh Chodesh is on Shabbat or on Sunday (this coming week it's both), then the custom is to have Yom Kippour Katan on Thursday.
