St. Patrick’s Day 2012

From the Riverwalk to a Riverdance demo, Casa María celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday, March 17, 2012, with a trip to downtown San Antonio, followed by a traditional Irish-style dinner at home.

Early that afternoon, a few Marianists, families and friends went to the Riverwalk to watch a parade of boats sail through the green waters. Each year, the city dyes the San Antonio River green, and businesses and organizations sail on the boats to honor the Irish saint.

A special dinner followed at Casa María, with guest chef Brother Mike O’Grady cooking up corned beef and cabbage. Guests also shared Irish-inspired foods, such as Dubliner cheese, classic and contemporary Irish soda bread, Guinness beer brownies and Irish coffee.

Irish pub music was played and Clare Strockbine, Social Justice Ministry Coordinator at St. Mary’s, also demonstrated a Celtic step dance à la Riverdance. Slainte! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
