DETROIT — During the 187th St. Patrick's Day gathering at Most Holy Trinity Church in Detroit's Corktown neighborhood, Catholics from across the Archdiocese of Detroit gathered to celebrate the patron of the Irish people and his legacy.

Two years after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, festivities during the annual Mass and celebration, dubbed the "Sharin' o' the Green," were closer to normal, with Massgoers decked in green, bagpipes playing traditional Irish hymns and an energetic atmosphere.

After Mass, the community took part in a sold-out "Taste of Corktown" event, showcasing the best of the neighborhood's cuisine.
