Most Holy Trinity, established 1834, is a historically Irish parish. As such, they customarily celebrate a special Mass on St. Patrick's Day. Bishop Donald Hanchon will celebrate Noon Mass on Monday, March 17.
The celebration typically involves a lot of pomp and circumstance. They always have a pipe band, a Knights of Columbus honor guard, police & fire honor guards, and the church overflows with congregants. Below is footage, albeit shaky, of the closing procession from last year's Mass.
Most Holy Trinity is located at 1050 Porter Street, one block south of Michigan Avenue and just west of the Lodge Expressway.
A luncheon to benefit Most Holy Trinity School will follow Mass. The 1:30pm–4:30pm luncheon will be at IBEW Hall, one block west of the church. The luncheon includes a buffet of Irish food, complimentary beer & wine, and Irish music for a $30 donation. Tickets are available from the rectory and, the last time I went, also sold at the door.
Start your St. Patrick's Day celebration the traditional Irish way — with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass!
