Exception for Corned Beef on St. Patrick’s Day for 2 Local Churches

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Catholics who go to the Hibernians Corned Beef Dinner at St. James the Greater or the St. Patrick’s Day lunch at the Old St. Ferdinand Shrine in Florissant will be allowed to eat corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day.

Both organizations have requested and been granted dispensation by Archbishop Robert Carlson, who is urging those who attend the events to refrain from eating meat on another day that week.

All other local Catholics are instructed to refrain from eating meat on St. Patrick’s Day, which is on a Friday in Lent.
