As we said in the last news post the group attended the Patrick's Day mass in Blackrock's St. John the Baptist Church. The group would love to thank the priests in Blackrock Church for being so welcoming to us. There was a great turn out from our group this year with about 35 people attending the mass -- but mostly as we were camping in Blackrock and we frog marched everyone to mass.
At the mass scouts carried the cross and bible up during the procession. Ventures and Shay held the flags: the Irish flag, the group flag and the Scouting Ireland flag. The group presented Shamrock to the parish and distributed it out to the congregation after mass.
Thanks again to everyone who attended the mass and kept the age-old tradition of attending Patrick's Day mass in Blackrock.
