Over the past 17 years, St. John the Baptist Church in Fort Calhoun has become a popular stop for fish fry enthusiasts from throughout the Omaha Metropolitan area.  Each Friday throughout Lent, nearly 1,400 to 1,500 or more diners cue up and socialize while they wait to eat  or take out the  traditional and Cajun seasoned fish dinners.
