OAK HILL – A Fayette County church is preparing for the masses to descend on its kitchen for the Lenten fish fry's.

Saint Peter and Paul in Oak Hill is making its preps for the first Lenten fish dinner of the season.

School officials say volunteers have begun putting in their hours and students are waiting to earn community service time.

Flounder, shrimp, potatoes, beans, desserts, and more will be served every Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. until April 11.

But principal Chris Michael says the fish fry is about more than just a meal.

β€œIt's a big community event, not only reaching out to the people in the community to offer them an option for a Friday Lenten meal, but to just gather as a community as well. So I think it's something that a lot of people look forward to.”

Michael says he expects to see more than 300 guests on Friday night.
