KETK’s Frank Jefferson also attended a fish fry on the first Friday of Lent.

Father James Rowland from Saint Mary Magdalene Church mentioned the importance of this time.

“It’s also joyful because Christ died on the cross because we’re sinners. God loves us so much because he was willing to sacrifice his own son, so that we may have eternal life with him,” he said.
