2020 Saint Patrick Irish Hooley – POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE


The 2020 Saint Patrick Irish Hooley has been postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. All ticket purchases will be honored when the event is rescheduled.

Adults and children of all ages are invited to our Saint Patrick Irish Hooley, hosted by our Ancient Order of Hibernians, on Saturday, March 14, at 6:00 pm in the school gym. Join us for a lively evening as we honor and celebrate our Irish heritage with music, singing and dancing.

The evening will feature performances by Pat Garvey, the Boyle School of Irish Dance and a visit from Saint Patrick himself! Traditional Irish fare, including shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, corned beef and cabbage will be catered by Murphy’s Grand Irish Pub.

Admission is $25 for adults and $5 for children. You can register on Faith Direct or in our parish office.

All proceeds benefit Christ House in Alexandria, a program of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington. Founded in 1973, Christ House provides emergency assistance, distributes free warm meals every day, runs a food pantry with perishable and non-perishable foods for the homeless and low-income households, manages a men’s transitional housing program, and runs a thrift store.
