St Patrick's Day

On Monday 17th March Villa Maria will celebrate St Patrick's Day with many other people around Australia and the world. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. As this day falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. At Villa Maria this day marks one of our annual mission efforts to raise money for Project Compassion. As well as wearing green, children participate in some fun activities as well as get to enjoy many yummy green treats.
