Friends of St Patrick

The Friends of the Saint Patrick Centre is a series of charities set up across America and Canada to support the work of the Saint Patrick Centre and learn more about Saint Patrick and Northern Ireland.

Friends are active in a number of cities including Minnesota, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Albany, Western Massachusetts, Toronto and Tampa. They send Young Ambassadors from their regions every summer to learn about the Centre and Northern Ireland, organise lectures and represent us at Irish Festivals and events. During Saint Patrick's period they work with those less fortunate to bring the spirit of Saint Patrick back into the lives of the homeless and the hungry. Find out more about the Friends of the Saint Patrick Centre by contacting National Coordinator Jane Anderson

Congratulations to Jen Vettrus, the new President of the Milwaukee Friends of Saint Patrick Centre and Mame McCully who has become Vice President. A big thank you to Tom Callen for his years of service promoting Saint Patrick and Downpatrick and we hope the Open House Reception on March 6th and the Downtown and Bluemound Saint Patrick's Day Parades on March 11th are going to be another great success. Meanwhile the applications are out for the Milwaukee 2017 Young Ambassador - so pass this on to anyone who is interested in the Milwaukee area
