St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson has given members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians a special dispensation to allow them to eat corned beef with their cabbage on Friday, but most Catholics in the archdiocese will be required to abstain from meat on this Lenten St. Patrick’s Day.

Thinking of bringing your cooler to the St. Patrick's Day parade in Dogtown this year? Don't.

The Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Clayton-Tamm Neighborhood Association, and the Dogtown Business Merchants Association announced today an outright ban on coolers being brought into the annual event. It's the first time such a ban has been implemented in the parade's 29-year history.
