Longtime Hyde Park friends are masterminds behind parish's resurrected fish fry
A fish fry is more than just a place to fulfill the Catholic obligation to abstain from meat on Fridays in Lent. It’s also where friends meet and share good conversation.
That was one of the intended outcomes for organizers of Most Holy Trinity’s fish fry. The historic parish in the Hyde Park neighborhood of north St. Louis resurrected its fish fry last year after about a 20-year hiatus.
An army of volunteers — parishioners and people from the local business community who have donated their time and supplies — made the first year a success. The lunch and dinner menu includes a full spread of classic fish-fry fare: cod, catfish nuggets or baked tilapia and sides of green beans, spaghetti and cole slaw.
