St. John the Evangelist Gears Up for Lenten Fish Fry Friday

Getting ready for Lenten Fish Fry

The Knights of Columbus Council 10901 took last weekend as an opportunity to check the operation of their catfish fryers and cookers to get them spick-and-span in anticipation of the first Lenten Fish Fry of 2015. This year’s opening fish fry will be held on Feb. 20 at 6 p.m. The traditional Lenten Fish Fry is held every Friday night during Lent at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church.

fried-catfish“The Knights catfish meals have been a Lenten tradition in Oxford for years. It’s the best deal in Oxford on Friday nights,” said Grand Knight Burke Nichols.
Each plate costs $8 and comes with a generous helping of Mississippi catfish filets, hushpuppies, cole slaw, drinks and dessert. Proceeds from the Lenten Fish Fry support St. John the Evangelist charitable activities in the Oxford-Lafayette County area as well as University of Mississippi student programs.
The Feb. 20 event will host a United Blood Services bloodmobile from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the church. All are welcome to donate blood for fellow Mississippians and enjoy the first Lenten Fish Fry sponsored by St. John’s Knights of Columbus Council.
