The Irish Pastoral Centre honored Mary O’Malley Walsh at their annual fundraising banquet on Saturday night. Mary and her sons, Mayor Marty Walsh and Johnny Walsh, attended the event at Florian Hall. Johnny shared his heartfelt gratitude for his mother, saying that she is the embodiment of an Irish immigrant—warm, welcoming, and hard-working.
Mayor Walsh thanked the Irish Pastoral Centre for its contribution to the people of Dorchester and beyond. The Walsh’s kind words were followed by an active auction and some spirited dancing to the live music. Over three hundred generous supporters turned up to celebrate the accomplishments of the IPC which offers services to the elderly, women and children, undocumented immigrants, incarcerated persons, and any individuals who feel that the IPC is a safe space to receive support services.
Save the date: Saturday November 18, 2017 Irish Pastoral Centre’s 30th Anniversary.
