Lenten Fish Fry at St. Joseph's Halle - 3/28

Beginning on March 7th St. Joseph’s Society will offer Lenten Fish Fry every Friday evening throughout Lent as an opportunity for the entire community of Fredericksburg to join in a constructive community outreach.   The event is not viewed as a fundraiser but as an effort to bring together those of ALL faiths to meet for dialogue, discussion, and dining during the Lenten Season.  For those who wish to attend, Stations of the Cross Devotion will occur on Fridays at 6pm in the Marien Kirche with plenty of opportunity to attend the meal following the devotion.   This is the 5th year for this event and the support and attendance has been outstanding from the community over the past 4 years.   Meals to go will be available, but there is no drive thru as we are hoping that people will wish to stay, meet new people, visit with old friends, and socialize during the event.  For more information please contact Darin Holmes at 456.1999 or Carlos Juenke at 456.9645.
