Matching Funds Event at St. Mary BC Church
St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Church in Ambridge, PA held pirohi and haluski sales on two consecutive Fridays. Over 400 dozen potato, sauerkraut, cottage cheese and lekvar pirohi were sold on December 11th and over 80 quarts of bandurkova haluski were sold on December 18th. Pirohi are sold at St. Mary BCC in Ambridge on Friday's from September to May, although this year’s sales have been limited due to COVID-19. The parish has won awards for their delicious pirohi. The pirohi project is headed by George Kurash with over 50 dedicated volunteers from the surrounding community. The project would not survive without all of the volunteers, many of whom are not St. Mary parishioners—their help is so very important.
