Peoples' Clinic for Better Health Benefits from Irish Tea
Start Date


Port Huron, MI... Offering a beautiful array of delectable desserts, a fine blend of hearty tea and the fellowship of committed community members, St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron was the proud focus of the Fifth Annual Irish Tea, held in early March 2012 during CelticFest. The tea, designed to celebrate Sisters of Mercy Foundress Sister Catherine McAuley, is hosted each year by the Daughters of Isabella Chapters 419 and 452 of Marine City and Emmett. Funds raised from the event will benefit the Peoples' Clinic for Better Health.
