North Platte Catholic schools celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

NORTH PATTE, Neb. (Nebraska) – North Platte Catholic School celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on Friday with Irish stew for lunch and green-colored foods.

Patrick’s Middle and High School also allowed for a relaxed dress code that defined Friday as a spirit day. The school received permission to serve Irish stew for lunch despite it being a Friday during Lent, a day that normally requires Catholics to go without meat, because it is named after the saint.

“He was a Roman-English young man, and he was captured and enslaved in Ireland,” said principal Matt Irish. “So he herded sheep in Ireland, and he eventually developed a strong relationship with Jesus Christ because of that, and then he became the bishop of Ireland, and he’s the patron saint of Ireland now.”
