Get your Friday fish and chips fix during quarantine

Aaron Lambert

We could all use a little Lenten pick-me-up in these uncertain times. So why not treat yourself to some delicious fish and chips on Fridays during Lent?

The outbreak of COVID-19 in Colorado has led to some unfortunate cancellations of many of the events and gatherings we love, and that includes all of the beloved Knights of Columbus fish fry’s happening at parishes around the archdiocese.

However, many restaurants are still open and offering take-out and delivery, including a few Denver-area staples of fish and chip goodness.

If you’re able, ordering from one of the below restaurants is an easy way to continue supporting small and local businesses in this time, and you can eat some delicious food in the process.

COMING UP: Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila issues statement on death of George Floyd

Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila has issued the following statement on the death of George Floyd and the ensuing protests in Minneapolis, Denver, and cities across the United States:

“The death of George Floyd this past Monday was horrifying for any person of good will. The inhumane action of one police officer has impacted the entire country and caused undue damage. Racism has no place in the Gospel message or any civil society.

The Catholic Church has always promoted a culture of life, but too often our society has lost its sense of the dignity of every human being from the time of conception until natural death. Every Catholic has a responsibility to promote the dignity of life at every level of life. Too many have made their god their ideology, political party, or the color of their skin, and not the Gospel of Life and the dignity of every human being.

The outrage around the death of George Floyd is understandable and justice must be served.

Yet the violence that we have seen throughout the streets of Denver and other cities in our country only ​advances a culture of death and hatred. Violence against innocent people has no place in a civil society and must come to an end.

I encourage the faithful of the archdiocese to examine our consciences on how we promote a culture of life on all levels, to pray for the conversion of hearts of those who promote racism, to pray that our society may return to a culture of life, and finally and most importantly​, to pray for the repose of the soul of George Floyd, for his family in their loss, and that justice may be served in his case.”
