This school year, St. Patrick Catholic School in Parnell is celebrating its 125th anniversary of providing Catholic education.

To commemorate the occasion, Bishop Walkowiak visited for Mass on March 15. He also stopped by classrooms to talk with students.

The anniversary celebration coincided with the school’s annual St. Patrick Day festivities, including a performance of Irish music by the Conklin Ceili Band.
