Pasta Night

Tired of Friday Night Fish Fry’s? Then St. James has the alternative. Every Friday in Lent, St. James Episcopal Church’s Men’s Group will host Lenten Pasta Nights.

The traditional church fare during Lent is the fish fry and Friday fish frys are held by several other churches in the area. The newly-formed men’s group of St. James will offer a pasta dinner as a meat-free alternative to the traditional fish.

The menu is simple: Each Friday during Lent we will offer a different variety of pasta, i.e. spaghetti, penne, rotini, etc. The pasta selection will be offered with a choice of two sauces, meatless marinara (red sauce) or a creamy Alfredo (white) sauce. Salad and bread will also be served.

Customers dining in will get a serving of pasta with their choice of sauce and a small salad. Bread, butter and condiments will be available and we will have soft drinks and water for sale. Take out customers will get a serving of pasta with their choice of sauce and a small salad in a take-out container. Water and soft drinks also available to go. Prices are $5 for the pasta and salad. Drinks are $1.

Pasta nights are March 14, 21, 28 and April 4 and 11. Service is from 5 - 7 p.m.

Cash or checks only, please. No credit cards.
