For years I have disliked St. Patrick’s Day, not because I dislike St. Patrick (a great saint), but because of what the mob has turned it into. And I don’t see at all any justification for dispensing from Friday penance during Lent when St. Pat falls on a Friday. I. JUST. DON’T.
Here is a fundraiser for the site Courageous Priest.
They are selling St. Patrick’s Day tees to raise some money. You get gear, they get cash. Win – win.
I think they are green enough. No?
NB: I can’t really claim that these are my tees, exactly. This is the graphic that the nice people at Courageous Priest sent me and so… hey!
Your best bet might be the hoodies. And you can give them as gifts. Get a couple to raffle off at the parish.
I am told that the offer ends on Thursday 3 March with guaranteed delivery for St. Patrick’s Day.
