St. Patrick’s Day is a day to honor St. Patrick for his devotion to God and the Church. St. Patrick spent 30 years teaching the people of Ireland about Roman Catholicism using a plant that grew all over the Irish land. The three-leaf clover was used as a reminder of the three parts of God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
So every year on March 17th,we celebrate and cheers to St. Patrick for his holy undertaking. Because the day happened to be Sunday this year, we decided to have our celebration on Saturday, March 16th. In the true spirit of the Irish we drank, ate, and jammed to some special Celtic tunes.
With Sister Agatha’s strong Irish coffees we celebrated in what seems to be a tradition: drinking. We also had the pleasure of listening to live music from the band of Teresa’s, an employee here a Little Sisters of the Poor. Known as Foley Road, the band had us tapping our feet and swaying in our seats. Our residents were decked out in green while enjoying green clover cookies.
Overall, Paddy’s Pub had all of us smiling and laughing. The spirit of St. Patrick was definitely kept alive through our celebration!
