St. Patrick’s Day Dispensations

St. Patrick

Since the Missouri Legislature is on Spring Break next week, there will be no MCC Weekly Update on Friday. The next MCC Weekly Update will arrive in your inbox on Friday, March 24th.

As you celebrate St. Patrick's Day next week, remember that it is a Catholic feast day. All of Missouri’s bishops have issued a dispensation allowing Catholics to eat meat on St. Patrick’s Day, provided something else is done in its place.
