Easter prep calls for fish frys

It’s the season of penance and preparation before Easter Sunday

BY MARY BILYEU
BLADE FOOD EDITOR

Lent begins tomorrow. It’s the season of penance and preparation before Easter Sunday.

It’s also the season of fish frys, offering food and sociability in addition to providing area churches and organizations an opportunity to raise funds by serving a meatless meal at a time when abstinence from meat is encouraged.
