Perogy Pinching

Would You Like to Help Make Perogies?

On perogy-making nights (usually Tuesday evenings), come to the back door of 93 Malvern Drive (Fr. Rendy’s Residence) and go downstairs. No experience necessary! Training for various jobs is provided. Expect to have a fun evening sharing laughs and getting to know each other.

There is no set amount of time that you must commit to. Some folks come early and stay only for an hour. Others come later and give what time they can.

All have a good time at what has become a social event!

Preparing Potato Balls

Little balls of potatoes are prepared with small scoops before pinching. This is usually done between 4:30 and 5:30pm on pinching nights. (About 6 people usually are needed for this.)


The actual pinching usually begins at about 5:00 PM. This process involves one team that prepares the perogy for pinching by preparing the dough, cutting circles, placing filling balls on the circles and keeping trays stocked for pinchers. A team of pinchers sit at a table, pinching the perogies, talking, telling stories and laughing at jokes!

Boiling Potatoes

Another way to contribute to perogy making is getting potatoes ready the day before pinching. Pick up a portion of the potatoes (usually Sunday after Liturgy), peel, cut into portions, boil and bring them to the Parish Residence in the provided pails the day before pinching (usually Monday at about 7:00 PM).
