“It’s a time when we have to look at our own lives, look at the things we’ve done wrong, and things we can do better at. It’s really a season about growing closer to Christ and self-improvement,” said St. Anthony’s Pastor, Father Ken Kirkman. St. Anthony’s will be hosting fish fry dinners every Friday throughout Lent.

In the spirit of tradition, they are expecting to feed a whole lot more. “There’s a great community feel, people have been coming here for a long time for this kind of meal, so it’s nice to see faces return from year to year,” said Kirkman. While everyone comes for the fish, it’s also a time to reflect on the past. “It’s a lot of ‘I’m going to give up this, I’m going to give up candy.’ To me, it’s an opportunity to give back more,” said Nick Diles, an organizer for the fish fry. Also remembering Lent is a lot more than just giving something up for a few weeks. ENDICOTT (WBNG) — With Lent in full swing, Fridays are the perfect time to enjoy a plate of fried fish. At St. Anthony’s of Padua, they are cooking up enough seafood to feed hundreds. From fried haddock, to clams and shrimp, volunteers have been working hard to prepare the traditional meal.
