BLESS THIS FOOD—At right, Chris Newton cooks fish fillets during St. Paschal Baylon Men’s Club drive-thru Lenten Fish Fry on March 26 at St. Paschal Baylon Catholic Church in Thousand Oaks. Below left, students package meals for guests to pick up. Bottom, Troy Miller, 14, runs to bring food to a motorist. Below, an order of fish and chips. Due to the pandemic, the traditional sit-down fish fry was converted to a drive-thru. On Fridays in Lent, Catholics refrain from eating meat as a spiritual discipline—hence, the fish dinners.
