Every parish will have its own celebration of St Patrick’s Day, but the Irish community in Glasgow are having a special celebration in St Andrew’s Cathedral – details below: StPatrick-jpeg
Mass in honour of St. Patrick in St. Andrew’s Cathedral.
Celebrant: The Most Rev. Philip Tartaglia, Archbishop of Glasgow.
Saturday 15th March 11.30 am.
Please come early if you require a seat. 
For many of us St Patrick is special – whether he came from the Dumbarton area or somewhere else – and for some his day is marked by the wearing of the shamrock and even by parades in different parts of the world.

Here is a Morning Prayer for St Patrick’s Day from the St Mungo Singers.
It includes The Celtic Invocation (taken from the 8th Century ‘St Patrick’s Breastplate’

ascribed to St Patrick but not really by him) and prayers, readings (including one
from The Confession of St Patrick, and another from the prophet Jeremiah),
Psalm 138 ‘I thank you for the wonder of my being.) and intercessions.
Notice the special Vespers in St Peter’s, Partick
