Our Lady of Hope Parish and the Knights of Columbus will sponsor a drive-thru, pick-up only pork pie (tourtière) dinner at St. Pius X Church, located on 492 Ocean Avenue in Portland, on Saturday, December 5, between 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Tourtière is a Canadian meat pie dish originating from the province of Quebec, usually made with minced pork, veal, or beef and potatoes. The meal will also include sweet potato praline, a salad, and dessert. The cost is $15 per person, with all proceeds helping the parish bridge a budget gap created by the pandemic. All orders must be pre-paid to ensure an accurate count and no cash will be accepted on the day of the dinner due to virus precautions. To participate, call Paul LeBlond at (207) 253-9856 or Andy Litcher at (207) 653-5356 to reserve your meals. Then, pay for your meals by dropping a check (made out to Our Lady of Hope Parish) in the church basket; mail your payment to the parish office at 673 Stevens Avenue, Portland, ME 04103-2640; or pay online at the parish’s WeShare site (https://ourladyofhopeportland.weshareonline.org/). All orders need to be placed by Monday, November 23. For more information about the fundraiser, contact the parish at (207) 797-7026.
