Take-out only this Lent
The abundant meals featured in the 2021 Diocese of Pittsburgh’s annual Lenten Fish Fry Guide will be served with an abundance of caution due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
But despite restrictions related to the pandemic, volunteers at most of the diocese’s 57 parishes and groupings are saying, “Come and get it—and take it with you.”
Although the meals are take-out only this year, the menus offer a wide variety of delicious Friday foods. As well as the classic fried fish on a bun, there are baked fish choices for sandwiches.
Beyond that, parishes are preparing shrimp or fish tacos, pierogis, haluski, linguini, macaroni and cheese, coleslaw, clam chowder, tomato soup, tuna salad, pizza and crab cakes, along with delicious desserts and other specials.
Besides food for the body this Lent, a number spiritual resources on the diocesan website offer food for the spirit. Lenten prayers, news, devotions, Confession opportunities, and more can be found here: https://diopitt.org/lent.
