Northern NJ church ladies who make pierogies to raise money
Good evening everyone. I know that there are many churches who do this at certain times of the year. However, I read an article on a Northern NJ church where some of the ladies make pierogies and the church sells them. I think they do it year-round. The chuch was in Clifton, I think. Maybe somewhere else.
Does anyone remember the story or know the church? Thank you in advance.
Ela, I'm pretty sure the church you are looking for is the
Ukrainian Orthodox Holy Ascension Church
655 Broad St
Clifton , NJ 07013
I've passed it a number of times and they always have the sign out for the pierogies. I think it's one day a week that you can pick them up. Give them a call to find out.
Hope that helps you out.
I don't know about that church, but there is a church on Maple Ave. in South Plainfield that has a pierogies for sale sign, "just call or ask sign" that I always find interesting.
I've had homemade pierogies from women from eastern Europe, but for my time, money, and GI safety I'd rather go to Clydz's for their happy hour deal on them.
LOL. I know it's pretty common for some churches to do this seasonally, a few times a year, etc. I've even seen some churches host a pierogi dinner and/or something of the like.
This church does it year round and apparently they are incredible. It raises good money for the church and these ladies are passionate about their pierogies.
Your welcome Ela. If you do get some please post about it as I've thought about ordering some and I'd like to hear what you think about them.
Not through a church, but some of the best in the area coming out of a tiny little work space.Take out only. Made right in front of you. Delicious, light and you can't beat the freshness.

So...the church only sells the pierogies on certain days of the week, and when I called, the next day was Saturday. Well, I needed them for Friday, so it didn't work. I'll be back soon though.
I ended up going to -- none other than -- Homemade Pirogi in Clifton. Of course they were excellent pierogies -- got a variety, and the "onion sauce" as well. I recommend Homemade Pirogi for anyone who is looking.
Thanks again for the help.
I still haven't been able to get the "church ladies" pierogies...but IMO "Homemade Pierogi" in Clifton is the best in the area. I've tried numerous places throughout Northern NJ, the Polish and other communities, etc. -- and Homemade Pierogi is still the best IMO, taste, flavor, etc.
I know people who drive a good distance to buy their pierogies from here...and the onion sauce is excellent. The owner gives great instructions on cooking/preparation if you want advice. He'll tell you how to make them depending on how you like them.
