New poster here, but I've been a list lurker for a couple of years. I just wanted to let everyone know that I took the advice of another poster and tried the fish fry at St. Francis on Wesson ave for lunch today. Great fish. VERY VERY good service. Those older folks that work the fish fry are VERY hospitable and really care about what they're doing.
Anyway, go try them out. Also, thanks Detroit Yes'ers for turning me on to them. I took a couple friends with me and they enjoyed it too.

Funny, I drove by that church around lunch time. someone menntioned this church to me and I figured I check it out since I wasn't that far from it this afternoon. If I knew about the fish fry I would have stopped in to get some fish, but more importantly to check out the inside. Am I correct that the fish fry takes place in some part of the church and the FF is a weekly event.
What a magnificent church.
I just did a quick search on it and a Detroit yes thread from 2006 entitled "Early Detroit Polish Communities" came up. I'm going to be sure to check out that thread and read up on St Francis.

St. Francis loved animals especially fish.

Yes RJK, you are correct. The fish fry takes across the street in what I believe was a school building. The meal is down in the basement. The fish fry lasts two more Fridays. These really are some nice people. Too bad the church isn't open. I suspect that the church is BEAUTIFUL inside.
Also, thanks Kathleen for the welcome.

Took your advice A1000 and had a wonderful meal. The people were very attentive and the fish was light, crispy and flavorful.
It does take place in the basement of the Parish hall, which looks to me an early gym.
Took a peek inside the church itself by telling them I was Mark Covington. Got a free pass inside.
