The tradition will continue at St. Joseph Catholic Church as Lent approaches and the annual Lenten fish fry events kick off. The first fish fry will be held Friday and run for seven consecutive Fridays through and including April 11.


Serving times will be 5 to 7:30 p.m. each Friday at St. Joseph Gallagher Hall. The price is $12 per meal for adults and $6 per meal for children under 12 years of age. The dine-in or carryout all-you-can-eat menu will include fried catfish fillets, French fries, slaw, homemade mild or spicy hush puppies, ice tea and a dessert.


The events are sponsored and catered by the Knights of Columbus. The Knights are a charitable, religious fraternity for men. They work along with other parish organizations such as the Catholic Daughters of America and the Altar Society. Some are members of the Altar Society. They also serve the church as altar servers, deacons, sacristans, lectors and ushers. Some are also members of the Parish Council, the governing body of the church. The Knights also provide the cooking for the annual Neighbor to Neighbor fundraiser fish fry event.


The Knights coordinate with the Catholic Daughters and the Altar Society in providing food for bereaved families. Assisting the Knights on these Lenten fish fry events are both the Altar Society and the Catholic Daughters.
