Diners were looking to heat things up by joining their fellow parishioners at a Valentine’s Day-themed meal on Saturday in Fort Coulonge.
Well, heat up the church and keep it warm all year long that is, as the community meal helps St. Peter’s Catholic Church pay their heating bill at it’s fifth iteration.
“It all started because we replaced the furnace and had the expenses for heating,” said Father Réal Ouellette. “What’s better than Valentine’s Day, the feast of love, to pay for the heat?”
With 270 tickets sold, the Knights of Columbus Hall was expected to be packed, as parishioners dined among red and white decorations, from hearts hung on the walls and ceiling to placemats and tables dressed accordingly.
