Seven Sorrows Catholic Church in Middletown will hold its Annual Fish Fry beginning Friday, February 12 and continuing weekly through March 18 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria. The menu features all-you-can-eat batter-dipped fish (eat-in only) plus lemon-pepper fish, crab cakes, jumbo fried shrimp, macaroni and cheese, pierogies, and a variety of delicious desserts (now including key lime pie).
For 19 years, the parish has been serving hungry patrons who come from throughout south-central Pennsylvania to enjoy the meatless meals.
“People are coming for the food,” said Fish Fry Coordinator Lisa Fortunato, “but leave with the experience. So many people have made friends with those they would never have crossed paths with other than here.”
In 2015, 5,000 pounds of haddock was served to more than 7,400 guests by at least 100 volunteers each week. The most popular dessert is the lemon-berry mascarpone cake.
The fish fry is located at 360 E. Water St. in Middletown (17057) and is handicap accessible. Overflow parking is available at nearby Feaser Middle School. Doors open at 3:30 p.m.; service begins at 5:00 p.m.
Dine in or place your takeout order by calling 717-944-5488 after 4:00 p.m. Cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover cards are accepted.
