Green lemonade, Green Cupcakes, Green decorations, and of course the “wearin’ of the Green,” were all quite evident, as a wee bit of Irish flowed through the auditorium on Friday. Susan started the St. Patrick’s celebration with a few tunes on the piano and Sharon stepped it up a bit with dancing a little jig.
Several of the dancers from McClanahan’s School of Irish Dance, were on hand to add to the festivities.The dancers, aged 4 to college age with their quick feet and curly hair, were a big hit with the Residents.
We observe St. Patrick’s Day in remembrance of St. Patrick; who God sent to take the gospel to Ireland.St. Patrick used the leaves of a shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish Pagans.Throughout his ministry he was able to convert thousands to Christianity.
In the spirit of St. Patrick, the Little Sisters, Residents, Volunteers, and Staff send you and yours an Irish Blessing.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
The rain falls soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
