This Lent, the Sun and the Diocese of Syracuse teamed up to crown one parish or school as the best Lenten fish fry in the diocese — complete with a very special trophy and bragging rights for an entire year.

Congratulations to Divine Mercy Parish in Central Square, winner of the second annual Holy Mackerel Lenten Fish Fry Award!

Father Richard Prior, pastor of inaugural Holy Mackerel winner Sacred Heart Parish in Cicero, handed the coveted trophy over to Divine Mercy Pastor Father Chris Celentano April 6. Msgr. Timothy Elmer, who named the annual contest and sponsors the trophy, oversaw the transition. Watch video of the presentation, live from the stream, below.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this fun, friendly celebration of the fellowship and hard work in our parish communities!
