St. Patrick's Day Mass - Sts Robert & William

St. Patrick's Day Mass
Main Celebrant Bishop Edward Malesic
Sts Robert & William Church
367 East 260th, Euclid
March 17, 2023

Despite what you may see in the media, the main focus of St. Patrick's Day for many people and families is beginning the day with Mass. There are special festive Masses at St. Patrick's West Park and St. Patrick's on Bridge for example. The two largest celebrations are hosted by the West Side Irish American Club at St. Colman's Church on West 65th in Cleveland and the Irish American Club East Side at Sts. Robert and William in Euclid. Hundreds pack the churches to start the day and reflect on the true meaning of the day and their heritage and faith.

Bishop Edward Malesic was the main celebrant at the east side Mass. He was joined by about a dozen con-celebrant priests. The Church was standing room only.

The entrance procession to the altar included IACES club units, Fife and Drums Corps, Bruce Grieg on bagpipes, Grand Marshal Mickey Coyne, IACES Man of the Year Jack Murphy, Inside Co-Chair Maureen Cavanaugh, Irish Mother of the Year Bridget Conway and other past and current dignitaries.
