A large majority in the Acadiana area will be celebrating Lent in the coming weeks. Fridays are the day we sustain from eating meat and usually partake in any and all seafood options (I know, what a sacrifice).
Thankfully there are local Knights of Columbus chapters continuing the tradition of providing Fish Fry dinners. Below you will find some of the local churches participating, their hours, prices and what will be included.
