With return of the season of Lent also came St. Mary Catholic Church’s 35-plus year tradition of Friday fish fries. Eden Merrifield (front left) works alongside other members of St. Mary Catholic Church, including Sister Mary Alice, Donovan O’Leary, Rosie O’Leary, and more to serve up the church’s Lent fish fry meals inside Piqua Catholic School’s cafeteria on Friday evening. Mitch Hohlbein (not pictured) has organized the event for over the last 20 years.
