Fish Fry

WOW!! We asked for your support for the 2018 Lenten Fish Fry and you did!! We served 1,332 dinners and our new drive thru was an outstanding success.  We raised over $3,800 for purchasing food for the Catholic Action Center during the next 12 months.  This will go a long way to help feed the homes in Lexington.

The Pax Christi Men’s Group wishes to sincerely “THANK YOU” for your support and look forward to seeing you at our Fish Fry next year!
