Fish Swim Upstream, Fish-lovers Walk Uptown
An article by Carolina Pais-Barreto Beyers
For over a decade, Epiphany Catholic Church, Uptown, has organized a fish fry fundraiser in the church’s basement. With an extensive menu that also includes non-fried selections, the fish fry attracts professionals from neighboring business who enjoy having quality seafood at a walking distance.
“I first heard about it from colleagues. After checking it out, I was impressed with the incredible quality and fulfilling portions,” said Ronald J. McKenna, vice president, BNY Mellon. “The first fish fry of the semester was on my calendar and I plan to stop by twice a month until next summer,” McKenna added.
With industrial kitchens, a welcoming dine-in area, take-out line, and even call-ahead service, the fish fry is also a community-building initiative, bringing together residents and commuting professionals.
“Everyone here is a volunteer. Over 20 people help make this happen, most of them over 65,” said Pat Krivanek, who began volunteering 14 years ago, and upon retirement became this effort’s chief organizer, managing all operational aspects.
Another loyal patron, David Grousosky, associate vice-president for management and business at Duquesne University has attended the fish fry for over 10 years. “People don’t realize they offer a very large menu that includes baked fish. I am always pleased with the tasteful, well prepared selections,” Grousosky said.
The fish fry operates in compliance with local laws for food preparation, and funds raised help the upkeep of the historic church building.
When asked about her motivation to run such a herculean effort on a volunteer basis and for such a long time, Krivanek answers quickly, “Because God has been good to me.”
