Holy Trinity Pierogie Making

Every second Monday of each month, a faithful “Pierogie Team” gathers at Holy Trinity to make hundreds of dozens of these delicious half-moon, stuffed dumplings.  The pierogies made by this hard-working and dedicated group of about 20 workers make the best, as many returning customers will testify!

They begin their Monday work day around 8 am in the church hall kitchen by mixing the flour mass in an industrial-type machine and running it through a mechanized roller.  However, much of the work is done by hand: Cutting rounds of dough, rolling and tucking in balls of potato and cheese, potato and jalapeno, and occasionally sauerkraut,  pinching them closed, and strategically lining them up on trays. The finished product is then cooked and packaged by the dozen into plastic storage bags and sold to the public and parishioners. Approximately 30,000 pierogies are sold each year, making this the most profitable fundraiser for Holy Trinity.  We thank these dedicated volunteers of the “Pierogie Team” for their continuous stewardship over the years. 

To order (we sell every second Monday of each month) please call 570.421.4455 or e-mail hteoc@ptd.net. Pick-up is at 12:00 to 4:00 pm that Monday.  Advance orders are appreciated. Pierogies are $6.00/doz. and delicious clam chowder (New England and Manhattan) is also available at $6.00/qt.
