Cead Mille Failte! A Hundred Thousand Welcomes to you as you browse the St. Patrick Society of Peoria Website.
Are you ready to do something with all the random facts you've learned while huddled up in the extreme cold we've been having? Grab some friends and join us for the 8th Annual Trivia Challenge on January 28th at The Fox Pub.
We would like to congratulate Patricia A. O'Connell who was recently elected President of the National Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians. Many of you know or recognize Pat from her many contributions to both The Society and Irish Fest over the years and the many hats she wears. We are very proud of her and wish her only the best.
The St. Patrick Society Board invites you to become a member of the Society and to support our efforts to remain true to our purpose as our Founders envisioned over three decades ago, “to perpetuate the heritage and history of the Irish people and to promote their ideals, traditions, and culture.”
We are pleased to announce that beginning in 2018, we will offer online registration for both new and current Society memberships, as we well as registration for the events we host including the annual Trivia Event, and the St. Patrick's Day Parade -- for both participants or volunteers!
If you are interested in volunteering at one, some, or all of our upcoming events including the Peoria Irish Fest, please send us a note and we will forward your message to the appropriate chairperson!
