Lent is just around the corner, which can mean only one thing: Knights of Columbus Fish Fry Fridays are back.
For a full list of local Knights fish fry’s, scroll to the bottom of this post.
For decades, the Knights of Columbus have gathered every Friday during lent to provide non-meat dinner options for the community committed to fasting. They also benefit parishioners through the spiritual enrichment of praying the Stations of the Cross and support many programs within the community.
“As part of building the domestic church while strengthening our parishes, we support many programs that pertain to faith, life, family and community by putting our faith in action,” said Clark Musser, State Programs Coordinator of the Knights of Columbus. “The dinners are just one way we can involve almost all aspects of our Faith in Action Initiative in one evening.”
By hosting these dinners, the Knights of Columbus make it easier for parishioners to participate in the Stations of the Cross during Lent by freeing up their meal preparation time and allowing them to bring their family to Church to attend Lent services.
“As Knights, we are Catholic men that support our clergy and church. This is just one way we can help bring families together and strengthen the faith of not just us Knights but of the parish and community also,” Musser said.
Everyone is invited to attend a Fish Fry dinner. While most Knights of Columbus councils serve Fish Fry’s, some of them serve soup for a minimal fee to cover expenses or even just a donation at some parishes.
For Musser, the dinners are more than just a Fish Fry, “It’s a faith, family and community building event.”
Fish Fry Fridays have become so popular that the Knights have their own recipe for the batter. The Knights of Columbus invite all to enjoy a delicious lent dinner, support their local parish, and strengthen their faith at the Stations of the Cross.
