St. Patrick's Day & St. Joseph's Day

Like every year, the historically Irish parish of Most Holy Trinity will have a large celebration on St. Patrick's Day. The church normally fills up quickly with many police officers, firefighters, elected officials, etc. in attendance. This year’s celebration will honor Msgr. Russell Kohler, the longtime pastor who died last year.

The Solemnity of St. Joseph is normally celebrated on March 19th, but since that's a Sunday this year, the observation is transferred to Monday, Monday 20th. St. Joseph Oratory will celebrate the day with 15 hours of prayer and activities, including three Masses, opportunities for Confession, food, and a procession to/from Eastern Market.
