The Irish American Club East Side again coordinated the annual Saint Patrick's Day Mass at St. William's Church in Euclid. A packed house watched the club units march in.
Bishop Richard G. Lennon was main celebrant at Mass.
As the Mass program stated:
May Christ and His Saints stand between you and harm.
Mary and her Son.
Patrick with his staff.
Martin with his mantle.
Brigid with her veil.
Michael with his shield.
And God over all with His strong right hand.

Jack McGary sang 'Our Lady of Knock' for the Communion Reflection and the crowd joined in on the refrain:
Golden Rose, Queen of Ireland
all my cares and troubles cease
as we kneel with love before you.
Lady of Knock, my Queen of Peace.
