St. Patrick’s Day Celebration at Maison Jesus- Marie

 My Irish friend, Mary O’Shea, marvels at the way North Americans celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  She marvels at the parades and the parties. Being at Maison Jesus Marie March 17th was truly a day of joy.  There was no parade but our Francophone sisters celebrated the Anglophone sisters with music, Irish coffee and cake.  This year Linda Haydock, Mary Ellen Holohan, and Lorna Cooney, members of the General Leadership Term joined the party.  We enjoyed Irish singing and stories of our Irish ancestry.  There was even a little discussion as how Irish each was, whether it was 100% or 50% or 25% or not at all. Thank you Maryse and Gisèle for a wonderful afternoon.
