Fish Fry Delivery Returns
The Men's Club at St. Isaac Jogues brings back the popular delivery service of the traditional Lenten favorite to those who can't attend the dinners at the church.
St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Church's fish fry will once again hit the road this year.
The church's Men's Club will deliver fish fry dinners on Ash Wednesday, and Fridays during Lent, to seniors and others who are home-bound and can't travel to St. Isaac.
This is the second year for the delivery service by the Men's Club, which also reinstated the tradition of holding parish fish fries three years ago.
"We had a great response last year," said Anthony Tiseo, president of the Men's Club. "It is a community builder."
Similar to last year, the delivery menu includes baked or beer battered fried cod along with french fries, baked potato or macaroni and cheese with coleslaw this year to homes within a four-mile delivery radius.
Seniors, or their families, have until Wednesday to place their order at 586-778-5100 to have a delivery on a Friday during Lent. The deadline for Ash Wednesday has passed.
Dinners are $8.50, or $8 for seniors, and there is no charge for delivery. Proceeds from dinners help various groups at the school that help with the weekly fish fry.
Additionally, Our Lady of Hope will resume their annual Lenten fish fry starting this Friday. The Men's Club will hold the dinners 4-7:30 p.m. Fridays throughout Lent at the St Germaine Campus Activity Center on Little Mack and Martin. The menu includes beer battered and baked fish, beer battered butterfly shrimp, meatless spaghetti, mac and cheese and meatless pizza.
