On the six Fridays of Lent (excluding Good Friday), St. Albert the Great's popular and famous fish dinners offer rewarding opportunities to unwind at the end of the work week and feast on great home-made meals. Dinners include fried or baked tilapia, potatoes mashed with cheese and spices or hashed-brown wedges, coleslaw, spaghetti with meatless marinara sauce, homemade desserts, and beverages. All food is made fresh by parish staff and volunteers and feeds many hundreds of individuals from the parish and the greater community each Friday.
Fish Dinners also include BINGO in the gym from 5:30 to 7:30 pm plus several kinds of raffles. We also serve up plentiful conversation and a joyful, welcoming atmosphere. In 2006 City Pages named St. Albert the Great's fish dinners the best fish fry in the Twin Cities, and this celebrated event has been highlighted by KARE1, WCCO TV and the St. Paul Pioneer Press.! This year, we're featured in the new book Food Lover's Guide to the Twin Cities.
The 2013 dinners begin on February 15 and continue through March 22. Adult dinner tickets are $10, Seniors (65+) are $9. Children 6-12 eat for $5, and those 5 and under eat free. Dinners are served from 4:30 to 7:30 pm. Overflow parking is available one block north at Anne Sullivan School parking lot. Our shuttle bus runs back & forth from the lot to the door... so hop on!
