Our Parish Organizations

Men's Club

The Men’s Club of Patronage of the Mother of God Church is a spiritual, social, and service organization open to all adult men of the parish.  The Men’s Club serves the parish through works of charity, fellowship, maintenance and improvement of the physical structure of the church, and sponsoring events that promote the spiritual and communal growth of the parish.  

Projects include: preparing and serving fellowship breakfasts and potluck meals, coordinating altar flower donations for Christmas and Easter, providing general maintenance and repairs, sponsoring Men’s Retreats in conjunction with other Byzantine Catholic churches in the Baltimore-Washington area, and coordinating recurring Community Giving donation drives. 

The Men’s Club generally meets on the 1st Wednesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the Church Hall.

The current slate of officers are:

President:  Dann Karlson
Vice-President:  Mike Erdek
Secretary:  Mark Jesko
Treasurer:  Joseph Belensky
