Happy St. Patrick's Day!

March 17th is a day to celebrate Irish culture and the life of the patron saint of Ireland.

Our modern St. Patrick’s Day evolved over many centuries from the original Lá Fhéile Pádraig, a day-long festival honoring the patron saint of the Emerald Isle. What a life he lived: St. Patrick was born in Roman Britain, came to Ireland as a kidnapped slave, escaped to a monastery, then resurfaced as a missionary and eventually became a bishop – a story of faith, luck, pluck and good fortune.

May you be lucky and fortunate this St. Patrick’s Day! Enjoy the festivities and have a great time.

As the great, traditional St. Patrick’s Day greeting goes: may your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.
