I tend to agree with you about the whole "Friday Fish Fry" concept.
I am a chef, and in my region of the country
every bar/restaurant/pizza shop has a version,
which is usually 2-3 times the size of a recommended serving.
I do understand the need to raise money,but...
it seems to me that this is "pushing the envelope", so to speak.
I have always wanted to have a simple soup supper w/ a free-will offering
followed by the Stations of the Cross on Fridays during Lent, but I could never get enough help to get anything organized, even though I had the support of the pastor.
And the thing that makes me the saddest is the attitude of the people who I asked ot help-
"You mean spend our **Friday night **at Chruch? :eek:
I like your idea and would support it and do what I could to raise funds for it. I like the concept, KIS (Keep it Simple) and I like how it is perfect for a large group of people to make happen.
Don't most people want to shed some pounds about now anyway with or without Lent? You may even get a person like me to come in:blush: and help you out with serving everyone.
I don't understand the reluctance to be there on a Friday night especially when that is the day I am told Jesus was on the Cross. That should be a big day for catholics to be feeling like going to church. Right?
