Brooklyn’s Irish-American Parade

Park Slope was awash in a sea of green for the 40th annual Brooklyn St. Patrick’s Day Parade, March 15. Auxiliary Bishop Raymond Chappetto, below, center, celebrated the pre-parade Mass at Holy Name of Jesus Church. Joining him on the church steps are Father James Massa, parish administrator; grand marshal, John Dunleavy, chairman, N.Y.C. St. Patrick’s Day Parade; the aides to the grand marshal, Irish step dancers, fourth-degree Knights of Columbus and Kathleen McDonough, one of the parade founders. The parade honors the victims and heroes of Sept. 11, 2001. (Photos by Marie Elena Giossi)
