A History of the Celebration
Every year since Brother Mathias founded Good Shepherd Center in 1951, St. Patrick's Day has signified the celebration of both Brother Mathias' birthday and Good Shepherd Center's ministry to the community.
The Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner is a chance for us to give thanks for all the support our community has shown those most in need through the Good Shepherd Center.

Then and Now
Even though Brother Mathias is no longer with us, we carry on his tradition of respect for all people through ministry to those in need of shelter, respite, recovery, clothing, or food.
We come together to celebrate not just what he did for the community, but also the community that reaches out to help their neighbors
