we celebrated St. Patrick's Day with a potluck brunch for our church moms group. we had a great time visiting together, and the kids played for a few hours while we talked. most of our kids are toddler-age, so maybe next year we'll attempt some crafts or themed activities! we kept it simple this time with green decorations and beaded necklaces. and we feasted on corned beef hash, sausage breakfast strata, green blueberry muffins, fruit salad, Irish soda bread muffins, maple bacon pancake bites, and shamrock cookies!

Collect for the Day:
O God, who chose the Bishop Saint Patrick to preach your glory to the peoples of Ireland, grant, through his merits and intercession, that those who glory in the name of Christian may never cease to proclaim your wondrous deeds to all. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Saint Patrick, pray for us!
