St. Patrick’s Day Luncheon

Sunday, March 13

Irish music, Irish – American (Corned Beef, Cabbage, Potatoes, and more) Food and lots of fun after worship.

Why does a Reformed (Protestant) Church celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Long before the mass Irish migration that was instigated by the Potato Famine of 1845, Protestant Irish who supported King William (of Orange) and Queen Mary in the 1688 Glorious Revolution against King James II migrated in the 18th Century.  An example of this occurred after the siege of Londenderry (Derry, Ireland)  Defending against the Catholic Jacobites in 1688 many of the Protestant (Orange) Williamites were rewarded with land in the American Colonies.  These Protestant Irish settled wilderness areas of Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, and beyond. 13 American Presidents had Scots (Ulster) Irish roots.
