So Minnesota: Minneapolis church serves up heavenly meat pies

Updated: February 17, 2020 10:30 PM

One Minneapolis church not only has mass, but it has meat. 

For more than a century Our Lady of Lourdes Church has served up a heavenly meat pie.

The meat pie tradition started in 1877 when French Canadian settlers founded the church.

Twice a year in the church kitchen, volunteers make nearly one thousand meat pies.

 "We have people come from out of town," Deb Hamilton said. "People who come and buy ten at a time it's just amazing."

 The pies cost $20. Money raised helps feed the homeless and keeps the church running.
