First Friday Mass - During Lent  

For the two First Fridays in Lent (March 4 and April 1), the Society will celebrate Mass at St. Joseph Church, 1012 N French Street in Wilmington at 12:10pm. No dress code is required. 

        After Mass, the Parish will provide a Fish Fry for lunch in the hall beneath the church, which is sponsored by the Knights of Peter Claver. The Fish Sandwich is $7.00 and the Fish Dinner is $12.00 and comes with your choice of two (2) sides, which are Collard Greens, Green Beans, Macaroni & Cheese, Cole Slaw, and Potato Salad.  The Hall will be open to serve food from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. You can take-out or eat-in. Payment for food to be paid directly to the Parish depending on what you order. There will be no need for checks made out to the Society for this event.

          As you may know, Fr. Evers is the Pastor at St. Joseph’s and when he presented this idea to the Executive Committee, it was thought this would be a nice diversion from the normal First Friday Mass schedule. Hopefully, the noon time Mass will also be more convenient for many members.
