A Parish Tradition for over 20 years, Lenten Friday Dinner begins the Friday after Ash Wednesday, continuing every Friday during Lent, with the last dinner on Good Friday. Since all Fridays during Lent are days of Abstinence (no meat), dinner is a simple meatless meal of Homemade Soup and Pasta! Also served are rolls, crisp salad, fruit and PB&J for the kid.
The Family Meal is a $30 suggested donation and the Individual Meal is a $7 suggested donation ($5 for seniors.) Dinner is served from 5:30-7:00pm in O'Donnell Hall - meet family, friends, classmates, ministry friends - and observe this Lenten tradition of Friday abstinence and also Almsgiving, as all donations are given to the poor.
All proceeds from Friday Lenten Dinner are given to the poor – in the last few years these organizations received donations:
- St. Lawrence of Brindisi
- St. Margaret's Center
- House of Yahweh
- St. Lucy Church/Marian Outreach Center
- St. Joseph Center
- Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels
- Via International
- Sisters of The Good Shepherd
