On St.Patrick’s Day, March 17, 1842, a procession, headed by the New Haven Blues Band, marched up Chapel Street to York Street to the Catholic Church on Mount Pleasant where Mass was held. After Mass the Hibernian Society marched through State, Elm, York and Chapel Streets, to the Exchange Saloon located at the corner of Church and Chapel Streets, where all gathered to sing songs about Ireland and St. Patrick. This was the birth of the Parade.
Since that Date, the Parade Day Mass has remained an important part of the tration of the Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
