Fish fry guide

(WFSB) -- Lent is a time when Christians participate in a season of fasting and prayer.

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, and comes to an end Easter Sunday.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics.

In addition, Fridays during Lent are also considered obligatory days of abstinence. Many Catholics observe this and refrain from eating meat.

Therefore, many churches and other organizations around the state offer fish, or meatless, dinners on Fridays during lent.
