St. Patrick’s Day dinner in Newcastle

Tue, 02/27/2018 - 8:15am

Come and celebrate the wonderful Irish heritage that was instrumental in the formation of St. Patrick Church in Newcastle on March 17. As in years past, the Shamrocks will be hosting a traditional corned beef dinner (roast chicken is an option) with all the usual side dishes, including home baked Irish soda breads and dessert in Cheverus Hall on the grounds of St. Patrick Church, 380 Academy Hill Road in Newcastle. Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. and tickets are $15 each for adults or $40 for a family.

The dinner features performances once again by the Murphy Family, John Reinhardt and the Tolley Sisters. Join in the fun and sing along to traditional Irish songs. Raffles will include two gift baskets – a basket of traditional Irish products as well as a Lucky Shamrock Lottery.

In addition to our celebration, the History Project of St. Patrick will present “Monuments of Faith,” a tribute to the families who helped build Old St. Patrick Church. On display will be artifacts and memorabilia belonging to the Cottrills, Kavanaghs, Hanlys, and Madigans families.

Tickets will be available after all Masses on March 3 and 4 as well as March 10 and 11, or by calling Lynn Maloney (207-798-2831). We are looking forward to seeing you and celebrating our heritage at Cheverus Hall at St. Patrick Church in Newcastle. Tickets will not be available at the door.
