Sts Peter and Paul Catholic School’s annual Fish Fry going strong this year’s Lent

OAK HILL, WV (WOAY)- The Christian observance of Lent began last Wednesday and last Friday began Sts Peter and Paul Catholic School’s annual Fish Fry Fridays. They are holding a drive-thru for people to purchase fish or shrimp dinners.

Fish dinners cost $12 and the shrimp ones cost $13 or you can get a combo meal where it’ll be both fish and shrimp for $14.

Meals include:

A baked potato

Baked beans




Toppings that include homemade cocktail sauce and tartar sauce.

The principal explains why they do this and what Lent is.

“So, each year during lent, during the Fridays of lent, we run a drive-thru fish fry. All the money that we raise goes to the school to keep our tuition low. Anybody who’s a hope scholarship recipient, it makes it affordable for them, and then also for those who have to pay out of pocket,” explained Natasha Seay, Principal at Sts. Peter and Paul school.

“Lent is the time of year in which it’s 40 days prior to easter. And each of those Fridays, we observe fasting, abstaining from meat,” said Seay. “And that’s one of the reasons why we run the fish fry. And it’s to serve the community. And we get a big turnout every Friday.”

If you missed today’s dinner, the remaining dates go as followed: March 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd. It’ll run about 4:30 to 7pm each day.
