Irish Mass in Honor of St. Patrick
Each year, the West Suburban Irish honor the memory and good deeds of St. Patrick with a Mass.
The 2017 Irish Mass was held on Tuesday, March 14, 2017, at St. Raphael Church in Naperville. The address is 1215 Modaff Road, Naperville IL 60540. See the map below for directions.
The Irish Mass is a beautiful service featuring Irish hymns and instrumental music. It is open to the public.
The 2016 St. Patrick's Day mass was held on March 15th, 2016 at 7:00 p.m., also at St. Raphael Church. The prelude began at 6:30 p.m., followed by the mass at 7:00 p.m. and then a wonderful soda bread reception was held immediately after the mass at 8:00 p.m.
Thanks to Pat Kelly, Irish Mass chairman, and to our many volunteers, clergy, staff at St. Raphael, the musicians and vocalist, dancers, Knights of Columbus, pipers & drummers, and everyone else who make the event a great success.
