On the evening of the 17th of March, parishioners from Our Lady Star of he Sea, Burry Port, and Our Lady and St Cadoc's, Kidwelly, gathered to celebrate the feast day of the Welsh Saint who had converted a nation, and had become the Patron Saint of that nation: Ireland.
Indeed, before the meal, His Lordship Bishop Mullins gave a brief talk about the history of Saint Patrick which was of great interest.
He culminated by stating how the Faith had been taken to Ireland by this humble ex-slave and the Irish had, in turn, taken that Faith right across the world whether that be America or even back here in Wales and our own parish.
Wit a background of Irish music, a great time was had by all.
A big thanks to all who came on the night, and the staff of Taylor's Steak House once again.
A report on the money raised will be posted on this site soon.
Thanks also to Steven James who popped in at the end, for his steak and chips, having just been made Mayor of Burry Port, the first Catholic to hold that post. The fact that he still came along to our parish get-together despite his busy evening says everything about his dedication to the parish.
