After meeting with our social and fundraising committees, we have decided not to resume a Lenten Fish Fry in the parish. Although we had great success in the past the effectiveness of this event in the future poses more challenges than solutions.
The inflated cost of the product and supplies has made it obvious that it would be very difficult to make a profit that would reflect the hard work and planning of the event. Fish used to be a low-cost commodity but in our economic climate today that is no longer true. After researching prices and availability of product we have decided to move away from this Lenten fundraiser and concentrate on other fund raisers to support the parish mission.
We want to thank everyone who supported our annual fish fry, the leadership, and all the volunteers.
