Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

It was a glorious celebration here in Catholic Peekskill on Saturday, March 10, 2012 for the Annual Peekskill Saint Patrick's Day Parade with a kickoff Mass held just prior.   Assumption's Pastor was honored to be chosen as an Aide to the Grand Marshall this year and grateful for the loving support of many parishioners who marched in the parade. I hope you enjoy these photos.

Ms. Curinga (Assumption School Teacher) joins Assumption in the fun
 All this fun in honor of the great Saint who evangelized Ireland.  May this prayer of Saint Patrick be realized in our lives:

Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
