Bishop Mitchell T. Rozanski of the Diocese of Springfield will march into The Student Prince and The Fort Restaurant in Springfield with a parade of Western Massachusetts Colleens for his annual Bishop’s Lunch. The event takes place at 8 Fort Street on Friday, March 16 from 11:30 am to 2 pm, just two days before the Holyoke St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday, March 18. The Bishops Lunch is not open to the public but it’s right in step with community awareness to show a real connection between local clergy and one of the largest events in New England. The media is invited to do a story. “St. Patrick’s Day week has always been huge on Fort Street and this year will be great again,” said Andy Yee, managing partner at The Student Prince and The Fort. “We are so proud to welcome the Bishop’s Lunch to The Fort because it honors Colleens from so many local communities, all at one very special event.” Those in attendance will include Holyoke’s Grand Colleen and her Court, and Colleens and their Courts from Springfield, West Springfield, Westfield, Chicopee and Agawam. Festivities will include music by the Mummers Aqua String Band and the Holyoke Caledonian Pipe Band, and a blessing by Bishop Rozanski. The menu will feature creative Irish Fare from The Student Prince’s St. Patrick’s Day Menu. The same menu will be available to the public from March 17-20 for those who want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at The Fort.
