Newark St. Patrick’s Day Parade Leaders Chosen

NJ’s Oldest Parade to be Lead by Archbishop John J. Myers,

Susan A. Feeney, Esq. and the NJ Army and Air National Guard

 

New Jersey’s oldest St. Patrick’s Day Parade has announced that it will be lead by two of the most accomplished Irish-American leaders in the State and that it will be dedicated to finest citizen organization in New Jersey.

 

Leading the Line of March as the 2011 Grand Marshal will be The Most Rev. John J. Myers, Archbishop of Newark.  Serving as Deputy Grand Marshal will be Susan A. Feeney, Esq., a Lady in the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre and President-elect of the NJ State Bar Association.

 

“We’re honored and humbled to have Archbishop Myers and Ms. Susan Feeney leading the Newark Parade in 2011,” said General Chairman Michael D. Byrne.  “As statewide leaders in their fields, it’s fitting that they’ll be leading the most historic St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the state’s biggest and best City.”

 

Byrne said that the 2011 Parade will be held on Friday afternoon, March 18.  Grandstand ceremonies will begin at Noon and the Parade itself will step-off at 1:00 pm.

 

In accepting the invitation to lead the Newark Parade during its 76th Year, Archbishop Myers said that he did so “with the greatest of pleasure and excitement,” adding that it is his “hope that this year’s Parade will go far in reconnecting this local Church of Newark with its Irish ancestry.”

 

Byrne said the Parade Committee couldn’t be more pleased with the Archbishop’s goal.  “The depth and breadth of the influence of the Irish on this City, State, and our Church are unparalleled,” he said.  “As we parade past the first seat of bishops at St. Patrick’s Pro-Cathedral, we’ll be mindful of Archbishop Myers steadfast service and leadership.”

 

Before reaching the Pro-Cathedral, however, the Parade will pass the Gateway Complex on Mulberry Street and the home of the Deputy Grand Marshal’s law firm, McCarter & English.

 

“McCarter has been and continues to be an advocate for the City of Newark,” Feeney said.  “On behalf of the firm, I’m proud to be a part of what the Newark Parade Committee is doing to support the City – both the business owners and the people of Newark – all while celebrating the life of St. Patrick.”

 

Also to be featured in the Escort Section of the Parade along with the Grand Marshal and the Deputy Grand Marshal will be representatives of the NJ Army and Air National Guard.  Byrne said that the Committee wanted to take the opportunity to recognize the Guard at a time when none of its units are deployed overseas.  “These men and women have made us proud during their recent deployments and we felt it right to recognize them during this historic year for the Newark Parade.

 

He said that the 2011 Parade is being billed as the start of the ‘Second 75 Years’ of an event that hasn’t always been easy to maintain.  “The Parade – like the City – has weathered a great deal of adversity,” he said.  “But the Irish – like all Newarkers – don’t give up too easily. 

 

Byrne went on to say that the Parade would pass some of the great symbols of Newark’s past and future – the Prudential Center and NJPAC.  “These are two of the greatest modern venues for sports and entertainment and they’re right here in Newark; right on the Parade route.”

 

From NJPAC, the Parade will head west along Centre Street and Central Avenue past Military Park and the statue of Msgr. George Hobart Doane to the Cathedral where Msgr. Doane spent fifty years serving the poor, cultivating the arts, and championing the City of Newark.

 

At St. Patrick’s Pro-Cathedral, the parade will then turn right and end in Washington Park.  Though the route has evolved over the years according to Byrne, the Parade Committee has been proud to consistently call Newark home for over seven decades. “We’re ‘keeping the tradition alive,’” he said.
