Cead Mille Failte! A Hundred Thousand Welcomes to you as you browse the St. Patrick Society of Peoria Website.
We would like to congratulate Patricia A. O'Connell who was recently elected President of the National Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians. Many of you know or recognize Pat from her many contributions to both The Society and Irish Fest over the years and the many hats she wears. We are very proud of her and wish her only the best.
The St. Patrick Society of Peoria sponsors the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Peoria, Illinois. This year's parade will be held on Saturday, March 17th rain or shine. Stay tuned for 2018 Applications and paperwork.
The Information Packet from 2017 is available for viewing here if desired.
The St. Patrick Society Board invites you to become a member of the Society and to support our efforts to remain true to our purpose as our Founders envisioned over three decades ago, “to perpetuate the heritage and history of the Irish people and to promote their ideals, traditions, and culture.”
