Whew! Happy New Year!

Yes, time flies when you're busy (or having fun).

2008 was a busy year for this webmaster, and I have to tell you, we're missing a lot of the folks who were around when St. Boniface closed, and that's a bit sad.

It is promising, however, that the St. Boniface group on Facebook (see this
previous post) keeps growing and growing. Jenni Brandel Owens started this group last March and there are already over 40 members. If you are on Facebook, join this group. It's free and you'll run into a lot of people from St. Boniface from near and far. If you're not, go on over to and join the St. Boniface in Carondelet group, and you won't miss a thing!

Also of note, we're getting closer to Lent and everyone knows what that means--the fish fries are back in abundance. If you haven't checked it out already, see the Ultimate Fish Fry Compendium on

If you like to go and eat at various fish fries around town, send your reviews in and we'll post them right here! Surprisingly,
the fish fry page on the St. Boniface web site is the most popular--over 7000 unique visitors paid a visit in the last year. Lent is our most popular season, but we get hits year-round.

I wish all of you a great 2009. Share your memories (and fish fry reviews) because, on the internet, we never close!
