The Gaelic Mass is open to all, Irish or not, Catholic or not. Please come celebrate with us this most significant part of the St. Patrick’s season as we pay tribute to our patron saint. Members of the Driscoll School of Irish Dance and O’Riada Manning Academy of Irish Dance will lead us down the aisle. They will be followed by the bagpipes and the presidents of the local Irish organizations. After communion, new members will be inducted into the “Order of St Patrick”.
There will be a pre-Mass concert from 3:45 to 4:45. The Redemptorist choir and individuals from the Irish community have worked to put together a special musical marking the 26th Gaelic Mass. There will be songs in English and in Irish as well as instrumentals on Irish fiddle, flute and piano. Irish dancers will perform.
