Men's Club

Ths SS. Peter and Paul Men's Club was founded in 1976, with its purpose to raise funds to benefit the Church, and to assist in any project upon Church request. The first meeting was held on October 1st, 1976.  Many decades later, meetings continue on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00PM in the Church hall.

Since its inception, the Men's Club has coordinated many social events that have raised tens of thousands in support of various projects within our Church. Most recent projects include a new Cemetery sign, Church Chimes, new sidewalk in front and side of Church, Ice machine, Church doors, 7 acres bathroom refurbishment, partial repaving of the Linden /Whitehead Ave. parking lot, Pascha, Christmas and Festival donations. During the pandemic, the club was blessed to be able to donate $5000.00 to the Church, while our members could not attend. Proceeds from events such as the 25 Week Club, Spaghetti Dinner, Fish Fry, and Atlantic City trips have made a difference to our Church.

The current Board consist of the following members:

Phil Rogozenski - President

Hank Dziemian - Vice President

Jay Pelleriti - Treasurer

Pete Silowka - Recording Secretary

If you are a man 18 years or over, of Orthodox faith, and in good Church standing, please consider joining us in making ideas become realities in our Parish Church. Any board member will gladly assist you!

Christ knows that for many of us, God and money run "neck and neck" as top priority. Is money a "god" that you put before God? Giving hour treasure to the church and other charities is a pillar of our Faith, just like attending Liturgy every Sunday, and participating in parish ministries. Unfortunately, it has become increasingly difficult for many of us to understand the fiduciary responsibility that the Lord intends for us to assume in the management of the financial resources He gives us. Accordingly, Parish Council will be addressing this and other monetary issues on a future date. Following a brief presentation after Divine Liturgy, you are invited to a Roundtable/Town Hall during Coffee Hour to offer your thoughts, opinions and suggestions on godly financial management, including spending, saving and budgeting. Please make every effort to attend, for as St. Barnabas of Alexandria says: "Do not hesitate to give nor complain when you give."
Mark your calendar...Oktoberfest 2022  will be hosted by the Senior R Club in the hall on Sat. Oct. 22nd, starting at 6:00PM. (Note: Great Vespers will be served at 5:00PM) While enjoying a traditional Bavarian meal, the sounds of German waltzes, polkas and classic songs will fill the air. The cost for this BYOB event is $30 pp; please contact Allison Steffaro (732_698-1952) for tickets.
