Saint Patrick Church - St. Patrick's Day 2010

Saint Patrick Church
St. Patrick's Day 2010 in Cleveland

St. Patrick parish was founded on March 17, 1848. It is the oldest Catholic parish in Cuyahoga County. Because of the Church restructuring, St. Patrick's is slated to merge with 2 other churches and become a new parish. So this St. Patrick's day was bittersweet as it could very well be the last for St. Patrick parish.

As always, the church was packed for the 9:30 St. Patrick's Day Mass. The Most Reverend Edward Pevec was the celebrant and Fr. Daniel begin the homilist.

The opening procession and closing recessional were led by the St. Patrick Drill Team.

Many parishioners were teary-eyed and hugging each other as they faced the reality of the situation. Amidst the sea of green clothing were numerous 'Save St. Pat's' t-shirts with '1848-' on the back.
