Every year during Lent St. Albert the Great hosts our Parish Fish Fry every friday (except Good Friday). The St. Albert the Great Athletic Ministry, in collaboration with the Parish Council, School Board, PTO, and Parish staff, hosts the St. Albert the Great Fish Fry.  We are always in need of filling several positions required to successfully operate and launch our fish fry. The following list describes the needed jobs and tasks that must be filled in order for the Fish Fry to occur. These positions do not require experience, and training will be provided as needed.


Ever wanted to compete on “Top Chef”? Want to see what “Hell’s Kitchen” is really like? Then this job is for you!

Chef/Cook- Chefs and assistant chefs are needed to wrap/cook baked potatoes, bake fish and pizza, cook green beans and warm the macaroni and cheese. Training will be provided. Due to the nature of this job, willing volunteers are asked to consider working more than one fish fry week. If we can get 5 or 6 people willing to do this job, the work can be split, and everyone would only need to work one or two weeks each. These individuals will need to work from approximately 3:00 to 5:00 and 5:00 to 7:15 or when the cooking ends, 2 shifts, one shift to start the cooking and one shift to finish the cooking.

Set up crew – we need people willing to supervise the set-up of the tables and chairs in the gym. Due to the nature of this job, having a handful of people who know how to direct willing volunteers to complete this task is needed. If we could have about 2 or 3 individuals willing to learn the set up process and supervise the other volunteers, then the work can be split up and each supervisor can work a different week. This job is needed around 2:30 to 3:00 each Friday and will take until about 5:00 to complete.


Looking for something a little more laid back?

Carry-out line set up – we need a couple of individuals willing to learn how to set up the carry-out line. This involves setting up the serving line, getting the needed supplies out (gloves for the servers, aprons ready, condiments out on tables, containers ready to go, food in the warmers). This job is needed at 3:45 and will be completed at 5:00. If a couple of people are willing to learn this job, the work can be split up and everyone can work different weeks.


We are hosting this event for everyone in and around our parish community. Let us all work together to make it another successful event.
