The menu includes fried or baked cod, french fries, mac and cheese, pierogies, cole slaw, salad, beverage and desserts. $11/meal; $9/students; $6/12 & under. There will also be a $15 all you can eat meal (no carry out).

We are also looking for people looking to gain some extra graces by offering a helping hand. Contact: Chuck Plinta 724-794-2200 or

We will be meeting with all volunteers on Wednesday 2/19/20 @7:00 pm in the KofC room at the Newman Center to review some procedures that we, as a commercial kitchen, are required to follow. Please plan on attending.

 Finally, if you have a favorite dessert you like to make please contact Angie Koch, dessert coordinator extraordinaire at 724-794-3601.

The Knights organize and run the fish fry, but could NOT make it happen without the loving support and help of the parish. Thank You!
