Lenten Fridays at St. John the Baptist Parish offer more than fish

By Staff     2/27/2020


Chances are there’s a fish fry scheduled this Friday somewhere near you. The parishes of the Diocese of Orange are pulling out all the stops to get you to their fish fry at least one day during this Lenten season. Thanks to the Knights of Columbus Council 14581, some creative thinkers and some wonderful cooks, there’s more than fish on this year’s menu at most parish fish fries. 

Take for example the spread offered at St. John the Baptist in Costa Mesa. Instead of the predictable fish and chips, the menu options include grilled shrimp skewers, fish tacos, clam chowder, and cheese quesadillas for the kids. Of course the Knight’s beer battered Alaskan Cod, as well as fries and coleslaw round out the offering. And then there’s dessert. 

Proceeds from the fish fry will support the purchase of an ultrasound machine for Obria Clinic. 

The St. John the Baptist Knights are serving each Friday during Lent from 5 to 8 p.m. in the parish hall at 1021 Baker St. in Costa Mesa.
