    Want to Learn how to make Pierogies??


    Our Parish is offering as opportunity to make pierogies for the sake of making pierogies.

    This is a perfect opportunity for the novice who has never pinched a pierogi in their life to learn as well as an opportunity for the seasoned professional to share their expertise and knowledge. It's also a great opportunity to get kids involved in the process of preparing food!

    We will be gathering on Sunday, September 15th beginning at 1pm. 

    We will focus on the basics of pierogi making: DOUGH, FILLING, PINCHING and BOILING 

    The session will last until 4pm or whenever the pierogies are boiled and cooled.
