Annual St. Patrick's Day Message


HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!

Today Marks the 256th Annual New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade



The oldest, largest, and grandest parade in the world!


As has become customary, we reprint our St. Patrick’s Day Message first printed in the commemorative book 

“250 Years of the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade.”



"For 256 years we've marched, through adverse times and weather.  We've marched in this sacred parade through years of occupation, persecution, and poverty.



 We've marched through years of famine, war, discrimination and hate; years of working the killing jobs that no one else would take.

 We triumphed over all with a courageous and joyful spirit that is uniquely Irish.



 Through it all we survived and never wavered; we held the banner high; we never let the standard drop.


 And as always, we marched.



 Today we remember the millions of marchers who came before us, those magnificent Irish souls whose struggles have given us all we have today.  We pray for them, we honor them; and we ask God to grant us the grace to always be as strong as they were.



  On this momentous day let us rededicate ourselves to the struggle.  May we always band together to help each other, and bravely fight to overcome the world's adversities.  May we always hold the banner high and never drop the standard.  And may we teach our children and our children's children to do the same.


Whatever the future brings, let us meet it with the hope, faith and happiness of our forebears.



And always…..LET US MARCH."



May God bless this parade, all who march in it, and all those who work to maintain, preserve and protect the spirit and message of St. Patrick’s Day.

The Officers and Members also wish to congratulate our Division President Kevin Ellis as he serves today as the Westchester County Aide to the Grand Marshal in today's NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade!
