For some denominations, Fridays in Lent means no meat. Many churches aim to help you out by offering a Friday Fish Fry where you can purchase fried catfish or other seafood and save yourself the trouble of having to cook something. As a bonus, most of these events are also fundraisers for Boy Scouts or the local Knights of Columbus group! Here’s a list of some local churches offering this:
