2017 St. Patrick’s Day Parade

bulldog_St_Patricks_Day_Parade_2011Saint James Alumni will again take part in the Philadelphia Saint Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday, March 12th!

Our Alumni choir – the Blue and Gray Voices – will once again sing at the Commemorative Parade Mass at Saint Patrick’s Church 20th & Locust in Center City.

Anyone who wishes to join us in this year’s parade please contact the Doghouse at (610) 876-2006, or drop us an email at stjdoghouse@comcast.net or stj63dog@verizon.net.   A bus will be provided and will leave the Doghouse at 10:00 a.m., so please be there by 9:45 a.m.

The cost for the bus, badge for the parade, and lunch is $20 per person.  Children 10 and under are free.  If you would like to just attend the luncheon after the parade the cost is $15 per person.  If would like to ride the bus and are not staying for the luncheon, the cost is $5 per person. We need to know in advance if you plan on coming to the lunch because no tickets will be sold at the door.

The alumni association has been participating in the parade for the past several years to show support for Catholic Education so please come and join us.  If you want any additional information or have questions please call The Doghouse.
