Friday Night Supper is a fundraiser for the church and the cheese and potato perogies are handmade by parish volunteers who get together twice a month in the church kitchen to make over 5000 perogies. Handmade cabbage rolls and traditional borscht soup are made on the day of the Friday supper. These traditional perogies, cabbage rolls and borscht are made with pride.

(Tip: definitely the sauerkraut) Add a big bowl of Borscht soup and rye bread for only $4.00. Vegetarian (without the Koubassa), mini-size and supersize dinners are also available.
