St. Nicholas Honors Pierogi Workers - 05/30/2018
On Wednesday, May 30th, the community of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Bethlehem, PA recognized parish pierogi workers with a Molieben and luncheon. A variety of appetizers, salad, a turkey entrée and desserts, were served in Chernay Fellowship Hall, to honor the pierogi workers.
After a blessing by Fr. Matthew, and before the luncheon, Sarah Jubinski – pierogi coordinator, made a toast, with wine provided, for the guests of honor. The pierogi project makes donations to: cleaning of vestments, renovation of the church rectory, maintenance repairs/purchase of new kitchen equipment, St. Tikhon’s Century Association, March of Dimes, and Northampton Children’s Bureau, to mention a few. Pierogi making continues to be a valuable church project and resource that aids the church and benefits others in our community.
May God grant many blessed, healthy years to all our workers, and to all who support the pierogi project. We pray that St. Euphrosini, the patron saint of cooks, will continue to guide our hands as we peel, cut, roll, pinch, boil, pack and sell our pierogis.
