YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Catholics across the Valley are kicking off the Lenten season with Ash Wednesday.
Ash Wednesday is a popular time to support local churches through fish fries.
St. Christine’s in Youngstown has been hosting fish fries for 15 years. It is a huge fundraiser for the church and the community, so it takes a lot of people to make it all happen.
“The people cleaning, bussing tables, people doing dishes, people doing all the cooking of course. Like I mentioned earlier, all the prep work in the kitchen is done, it’s all volunteers,” said Dennis Rucci from St. Christine’s.
Carry out orders start Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. and you can dine-in at 4 p.m.
