Tasty and inexpensive dinners, prepared to keep you out of the kitchen during the Lenten Season thanks to the Knights of Columbus at St. Irenaeus Catholic Church in Cypress begin February 16 through March 22.

The seafood dinners will be served on the six consecutive Friday evenings between 5 & 7 the Church’s community center on Grindlay Street, between Lincoln and Orange in Cypress. You can enjoy your dining indoors or take it home.

On the menu will be full dinners of fish and chips, freshly-made cole slaw, roll and cookie for just $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for children 5-12 years of age. Also: two slices of Costco cheese pizza for $6. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted. An added attraction will be a low-cost Raffle for a luxurious 3-night stay at the Hyatt’s Vacation Club Welk Resort in Escondido in mid-May.

The Council’s Grand Knight Chris Nsor says it’s more than delicious dinners, but a way to help local organizations such HSA (Home School Association); H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Everyday); M.E.F.P.(Marriage Enrichment Formation Program); Special Olympics; American Wheelchair Mission; People With Intellectual Disabilities; La Habra Life Shelter; and other Knights of Columbus approved charities in Cypress and surrounding communities.
