St. Patrick’s Parade

Saint James School has been invited to take part in this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Hartford!!

We are hoping to build a float for the event and are looking for parents that would be willing to help with the construction and design. We are also looking to get a feel for who would be interested in riding in our float at the parade – which is Saturday, March 10th (All students must have a parent/guardian with them at the parade).

If you are interested in participating in the parade and/or helping us design and build a float, please e-mail Jana Tierney at

Similarly, the Manchester St. Patrick’s Committee dinner dance is right around the corner.  This event helps raise funds for Manchester’s participation in the parade.  And, this year’s honorees  – Cheri Pelletier Eckbreth and Jay Moran – both have a connection to our school!  The cost is $25 per person and includes a corn beef and cabbage dinner.  If you would like to attend, please reach out to SJS parents Mary Ann Creamer ( or Jana Tierney (
