Annual St. Patrick's Day Celebration

Our yearly St. Patrick's Day Celebration has been our largest fundraiser contributing over $20,000 since 2009. The event is a celebration of Irish heritage showcasing two talented local bands from Maryland, the Tanzania Ceili Band and Dileab Phriseal and an Irish dance group made up of children ages 6-18 years old.

Along with this fine entertainment is served an Irish dinner of corned beef and cabbage, Guiness Stout and other quality beers, wine, soft drinks, a 50/50 raffle, auctions and door prizes.

Most of all there is the wonderful frienship of the St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, the brotherhood and sisterhood of the Knights of Columbus, and many other individuals who enjoy a good time.
