Lenten Fish Frys

While a great parish event that brings together and unites parishioners, our St. John Neumann Lenten Fish Frys serve another purpose as well. All tips from the five Fish Frys {first through fifth week of Lent} as well as corporate sponsorships and our final Fish Fry's net amount go to the needy.

In 2015 our final fish fry raised a record $35,000.00 for the needy. Some of the money put roofs on the homes of our brothers and sisters in Chiltiupan in El Salvador. We put 140 roofs on homes at approximately $150.00 each. Below are pictures of their roofs before the distribution of the materials which are fish fry purchased and the new roofs. Thanks to all workers, our corporate sponsors and those who supported our fish frys. The distinction between before the distribution and after is pretty obvious in the pictures.
