Feast On the Feast!

On Friday, March 15 we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day a little early with our annual Feast on the Feast. The Feast on the Feast is our opportunity to celebrate the Feast Day of Saint Patrick and welcome our new Wolfhound families to the Saint Patrick Catholic School community. New Wolfhound families were welcomed with cheers at the check-in table and had the chance to take a family photo in front of one of our three “shamrock walls” in the transformed gymnasium. 

Bagpipers from the Tidewater Pipes and Drums officially kicked off the evening as they processed around the green and into the gym to officially start the festivities. They helped put everyone in attendance in spirit of the day. Head of School Lauren Mazzari welcomed the crowd of over 500 and asked our new families to stand and be recognized. Mrs. Mazzari concluded her remarks by introducing Celtic Council Vice President John Wessling who offered an opening prayer. Our very own Dan Pellegrino performed a set of traditional Irish songs as families enjoyed their dinner and was followed by a performance by our Irish Dance Club. To close out the program, second grade student Aubrey C. took to the stage and showed off some fancy footwork as she danced to Irish melodies.

As dinner came to an end, Director of Admissions Martha Roebuck announced the activities that the Celtic Council had prepared. For the remainder of the evening, students enjoyed a variety of games and bounce houses on the Green, on the back field, and in the Dining Hall. We were excited to welcome so many new Wolfhounds into our community and were happy to have them join us for such a fun night!
