Despite the weather the Harrisburg Saint Patrick’s Day Parade kicked off at 2:00 and was considered a success.  The General William Thompson Division provided the honor guard for the 1st division, the Irish and AOH division for the parade, photo coverege of the event was provided by our Associate member, Dave Thomas.
 
Perhaps even more important was the celebration of the Mass at 10:00 at Saint Lawrence Chapel, celebrated by Father Clark with Jacquie Turk providing her rendition of “Our Lady of Knock”.  Father commented how people come to this Mass just to hear her sing.
 
The Division Honor Guard four strong provided escort for the Mass Celebrants in the chapel.
 
The perfect way to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day.  Giving thanks and praise.
