A Happy St. Patrick's Day in Inner Southeast

by: Eric Norberg,

Some Catholic leaders across the country were calling for ignoring St. Patrick's Day this year - since, in an oddity, it fell inside Easter week.

But St. Agatha's Catholic School in Sellwood neatly solved the problem by staging its annual parade the day before the holy week's beginning on Palm Sunday, in the noon hour of Saturday, March 15th.

Police closed the streets as the cheerful event marched south past S.E. Bybee down Milwaukie Avenue, before here turning west on Miller Street, to finish at St. Agatha's.
