Saint Patrick's Day Celebrations - 3/16/2014
For the past 20 years, the Barry family of Brownsville, Pa. has celebrated their Irish heritage with a private family celebration on St. Patrick's Day. The event draws 300 family members every year and takes several weeks of preparation.
Ron Barry displays the family crest which was brought over from Ireland by his uncle. The inscription at the bottom is French for "push forward."
Proudly sporting his traditional Irish tweed cap, Ron Barry of Brownsville displays a "shilelagh" which is an Irish blackthorn walking stick.

St. Helen Church, East Pittsburgh - 3/14/2014
|St. Helen Church was originally founded in 1917 as a Slovak Parish in the neighborhood of East Pittsburgh.|
|The current church was built in 1929 while the original building was transformed into a social hall.|
|St. Helen merged with St. William Church to form Holy Cross Parish in 1994 when the declining community could no longer support two independent parishes.|
|St. Helen's bell was forged by the McShane Bell Foundry Co. in Baltimore Md. in 1932|
|In 2013, financial difficulties caused the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh to begin considering the future of the parish.|
|It was announced in February, 2014 that lack of finances would cause both churches to close by the end of the year.|
|Services will continue through the end of April, 2014 when the parish will be discontinued.|
