Len­ten fish dishes at Holy Fam­ily

The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Religion -

VER­NON » This Len­ten sea­son brings the 35th year that the Church of The Holy Fam­ily has of­fered its Len­ten fish din­ners.

The Holy Fam­ily Len­ten fish din­ners be­gan in 1984, a joint ven­ture of the par­ish’s So­cial Com­mit­tee and the Men’s Club. The din­ners pro­vide in­come for the par­ish and pro­mote unity and so­cial en­gage­ment be­tween par­ish mem­bers and the larger com­mu­nity.

Some of the prof­its have gone to im­prove light­ing in- and out­doors of the church, for ev­ery­one’s safety while on church grounds. An­other safety item pro­vided by the din­ners was in­stal­la­tion of a kitchen fire sup­pres­sion/ alarm sys­tem. In ad­di­tion, do­na­tions have been made to lo­cal Red Cross Dis­as­ter Re­lief, Haitian earth­quake vic­tims, Unity Acres, and 10 per­cent of yearly prof­its go to the Catholic Re­lief Ser­vices to pro­vide as­sis­tance to needy per­sons around the world.

Holy Fam­ily also has an on­site do­na­tion shed for the com­mu­nity to do­nate cloth­ing, with the do­na­tions go­ing world-wide to clothe the less for­tu­nate.

Din­ners are held the first six Fri­days of Lent, Feb. 16 through March 23, at the Floyd E Booth Par­ish Cen­ter, 4352 Peter­boro St. from 4- 6:30 p.m. The eatin din­ner in­cludes fried had­dock, baked potato, mac­a­roni salad, coleslaw, home­made baked beans, pick­led beets, tossed salad, and a choice of five bev­er­ages for $9. The church of­fers gift cer­tifi­cates, take­out for $8, as well as a weekly bake sale.
