Pirohi Fridays at St. Michael's
2/15/2013 (Updated 11:14:56 PM)This Friday marked the first Friday of Lent- and for many Catholics, it is a day to abstain from eating meat
For the past half century, St. Michael's Greek Catholic Church in Binghamton has been providing the community with meat-free meals on Fridays during the Lenten season.
About 100 volunteers prepare the Slovak delicacy -Pirohis.
"A lot of people in the parish make the pirohi but we have a lot of people out of the parish who help us. A lot of people come here to eat this great Lenten food so it's a lot of fun and great fellowship," says Father Jim Dutko.
The Lenten lunch tradition will be held every Friday throughout the Lenten season.
