Congressman Chris Smith: St. Patrick Transformed The World

Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) made the following statement on Sunday, March 10, 2019:

Congressman Smith in Rumson on Sunday March 10 with Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger, Middletown Committeemen Rick Hibell and Kevin Settembrino, Freeholder Deputy Director Pat Impreveduto, Middletown Mayor Tony Perry, Rumson Mayor Joseph Hemphill, Freeholder Sue Kiley and Middletown Committeewoman Pat Snell

The St. Patrick’s Day Parades across the country are great expressions of faith; celebrations of our rich Irish heritage and above all, a recognition of a saint who transformed not only Ireland but the world.

So special thanks to Jamie McManus and the Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee for providing a way for us to honor, revere and praise one of the greatest saints in all of Christendom.

And thank you for your leadership and generosity in supporting local charities particularly this year’s beneficiary Lunch Break of Red Bank.

St. Patrick, born in 387, endured six years of slavery in Ireland as a child yet went back after a daring escape to face unremitting danger and crushing setback only to persevere with an indomitable will to preach the good news of Jesus Christ, the forgiveness of sin and the way of salvation.
