St. Louis’ annual Irish celebration, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade “Meet the Irish” Dinner, takes place the night before the parade at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark in downtown St. Louis. It is a formal evening of dinner and entertainment.
The “Meet the Irish” Dinner begins with cocktails and entertainment at 6:00 PM.
Dinner is at 7:30 PM. During dinner, we introduce our various dignitaries from Ireland and the United States. And, after dinner, there is dancing with entertainment provided. It is a fitting kickoff to the events of the parade weekend.
Our Lady of the Pillar was founded as a parish 1938. Its origins started in the humble Chapel at Chaminade College preparatory school. Since it’s inception, Our Lady of the Pillar has been staffed by the Marianists.
