A Full House Attended Gatey Irish Breakfast

After the 9am Mass at Gate of Heaven Church, scrambled eggs, home fries and bangers, juice, coffee, tea and fresh cut melons attracted more than 100 neighbors. Freshly-baked Irish soda bread and Irish brown bread was also served. Irish music played in the background and then Fr. Bob Casey mesmerized the guests with his rendition of ‘ The Fields of Athenry’. The Honorable Ray Flynn, former Ambassador to the Vatican, added his Irish ditty. Sponsored by Senator Nick Collins, this annual breakfast is a welcomed tradition by the Gate of Heaven Parish Family during the Saint Patrick’s Day festivities.

The Gate Of Heaven volunteers, Mary Maiullari, Karen Evans and Mary McCarthy Collins want to remind you that Coffee and Conversation happens after the 9:00 Mass on the second Sunday of every month. The next breakfast will be on Mother’s Day.
