2019 Fish Fry Guide: Find a Lenten Fish Fry in your neighborhood

Several churches and community groups around the greater New Orleans area host fish frys during Lent. If you’re looking to grab a plate, there are plenty of places offering that crispy-battered fish with all the fixings.

The Archdiocese of New Orleans lists a round up of local churches participating in #FridayFishFry. Contact the listed organizations for more information about their fish fry. The Archdiocese also encourages people to follow #FridayFishFry on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram for the latest updates.

Contact us if your organization would like to add your fish fry to our list.
