All-powerful, eternal God, You have chosen to give mankind a model of humility; 
Our Savior took on our flesh, and subjected Himself to the Cross. 
Grant us the grace to preserve faithfully the lessons 
He has given us in His Passion and to have a share in His resurrection. 
This we ask of You through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son.  Amen. 



We have a great selection of photos and video from the very enjoyable parade through the town on Saint Patrick's Day. Well done to the parade committee who did a wonderful job. Click Here for photos or click on the Video Library link further down for videos.
