My local church (which I have not been involved in since my son graduated from their school) makes oyster stew and padded oysters for pick up on Ash Wednesday and a couple of other days during Lent. The padded oysters are big and plump and fry up nicely, the oyster stew is perfectly seasoned and out-of-this-world. The church is St. Francis of Assisi at Harford Rd. and Chesterfield Ave. (across the street from Herring Run Park). Everything must be ordered in advance which you can do by calling the rectory at 410 235-5136. Trust me, this is a real chowhound find.
