Lenton fish-frys begin Feb. 16 at local Catholic churches
The annual Lenten fish-frys at Our Lady of the Gulf Catholic Church (2304 E. 2nd St.) in Gulf Shores, St. Thomas By The Sea (26547 Perdido Beach Blvd.) in Orange Beach and Holy Spirit Catholic Church (10650 Gulf Beach Hwy.) in Pensacola start on Feb. 16 and will continue every Friday thru March 22. Meals are all served eat-in or take-out.
Hours are 5-6:30 p.m. at Our Lady of the Gulf. Cost is $15 for a meal that includes delicious fried fish, hushpuppies, baked beans, cole slaw, a drink, and good fellowship. The church’s Alter Rosary Society will be selling desserts for consumption on site or to go. Prepared by Gulf Shores’ finest fry-cook using a secret recipe and sponsored by Knights of Columbus Council 10903, the fish-frys are a huge hit with locals and snowbirds. Proceeds benefit Baldwin County Catholic schools.
The Knights of Columbus will be serving fish dinners every Friday at the St. Thomas by the Sea Parish Hall from 4-6 p.m. Plates include fried fish, hushpuppies, French fries, coleslaw, dessert and a drink. Beer is available for a donation.
Located in the heart of the Grande Lagoon neighborhood, Holy Spirit will serve fish and fixins from 5-7 p.m. and the cost is $12 for adults or $8 for children for a full meal.
