March 17, 2016 – St. Patrick’s Day

I would like to take this opportunity to wish Canadians of Irish heritage a Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

St. Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday that is observed on March 17th, the date of the Patron Saint of Ireland’s death. March 17th is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador.  The day is marked by church services and the lifting of Lenten restrictions.
