On March 9, 2020, WSI held it's annual Irish Mass at St. Raphael Church in Naperville, Illinois. The Mass was a celebration honoring the memory and good deeds of St. Patrick.
The event featured readings in the Irish language, Irish instrumental music, pipes & drums, Irish dancing and the pageantry that only the Knights of Columbus can bring. We were especially blessed this year to enjoy the stunning voice of Paddy Homan, Chicago's Traditional Irish Tenor, as he sang hauntingly beautiful Irish hymns.
The prelude began at 6:30 pm, Mass started at 7:00 pm and the popular Soda Bread & Tea Reception followed immediately afterwards. As always, the Irish Mass was open to the public.
