Supporting Student Scholarships at Nashotah House — First Friday Fish Fries this Fall

The Daughters of the King (DOK), St Mary’s Chapter, hosted a Wisconsin time-honored favorite — a Friday fish fry — to raise funds for the Bishop Parsons’ Scholarship Fund. Residential students and spouses from Nashotah House served the fried or baked fish, and quickly realized the German chocolate cake was the biggest hit of all. Surprisingly to many the fish has not always been fried — a truly American addition from the 1890s — however, the fish is a Friday staple, honoring Roman Catholic tradition since the 15th century.

People from the surrounding area and Christ Church Cathedral in Milwaukee joined us for an evening, casual friendly dining. ‘I could eat this seven nights a week — the best fish in town — and the only fry for a worthy cause,’ said Scott Matthews from First Bank Oconomowoc.

So that’s about it for the fish, how about that fund? Nashotah House formed the Bishop Parsons Scholarship Fund to offer scholarships to help train and form the dynamic aspirants God is raising up today.

Subsidizing the costs both of an excellent theological education and the spiritual formation forged by three years of worship, service and community life at Nashotah House, the Bishop Parsons Scholarship Fund helps the House to remain competitive with seminaries which enjoy large endowments.

Interested in joining us? Next fry — All Saints’ Day, November 1 from 5pm-8pm.
Call ahead, and we’ll hold a table for you!
