METRO DETROIT — Avoiding meat on Fridays during Lent can be difficult, but finding a fish fry doesn't have to be.

From Port Huron to Wyandotte, more than 30 Catholic parishes, schools and groups are offering meatless dinners to help their parishioners observe the Lenten abstinence. For our readers' convenience, Detroit Catholic has compiled an easy-reference guide at www.detroitcatholic.com/fishfry to help Catholics (and cod lovers!) find a fish fry near you. 

If your parish is not included on this list and would like to be, please share the details with us. Listings are provided free of charge.

May this Lent bring you ever closer to our Lord Jesus Christ. Happy fasting!
