2020 Lenten Fish Fry Dinners

3/13 Fish Fry cancelled: On 3/12, in response to the corona virus, the Governor of Delaware declared a State of Emergency for Delaware. He, along with members of the Division of Health and Social Services (DHSS) and Division of Public Health, recommends that all non-essential public gatherings of more than 100 people be cancelled.

In accordance with this, and in the best interests of our parishioners, volunteers and community as a whole, we have decided to cancel 3/13 Fish Fry. This is a complete cancellation for March 13th – no sit down dinner, no take out.

We hope to resume on 3/20 with our “Fish in a Bag” take-out service and our next sit down Fish Fry dinner on 3/27, however we will of course continue to evaluate the situation over the coming days and weeks and will communicate any changes.

Fridays: Feb 28, Mar 13 & Mar 27
Knights of Columbus Lenten Fish Fry dinners will be held on 2/28/20, 3/13/20 and 3/27/20, 5 – 7 p.m. in SJB Hall. Dinner includes fried or baked flounder, choice of baked potato, french fry or macaroni & cheese, choice of coleslaw, green beans or applesauce, and a dinner roll.  The Dialog review of our dinner

Dinners are $12 for adults, $6 for children. Eat-In or Take-out!
This is a great opportunity for our parish families (and friends) to come together for a meal before the Stations of the Cross, or to just take an evening off from cooking. We hope to see you there.
