We are thrilled to introduce the 2015 Grand Marshals and Honored Clergy Member. The Grand Marshals are Agnes and Patrick Lynch. The Honored Clergy Member is Monsignor John Graham.
Agnes and Patrick Lynch married in 1959 and raised their family in Throggs Neck. Among their community and parish involvement are the Legion of Mary, the Holy Name Society, Eucharistic Ministers, Church Campaigns, and many more groups. Patrick has been the President of the St. Frances de Chantal Nocturnal Adoration Society for over 38 years. Agnes has been an ardent supporter of the Gaelic League of the Bronx and serves on the Blood Drive Committee of St. Frances de Chantal. Monsignor John Graham is the pastor of the St. Raymond Church and was named Vicar of the East Bronx in 2012. Monsignor Graham has dedicated his life to helping the people of the Bronx.
We also celebrate the lives of the Honorary Grand Marshals. These individuals represent all facets of our Bronx Community and we are proud to honor their lives at the 17th Annual Throggs Neck St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
