Archbishop Vigneron appeared on the Paul W. Smith St. Patrick's Day Celebration broadcast on News Talk 760 WJR-AM on Friday, March 12, 2017 to give his annual St. Patrick's Day blessing:
May our thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks
May our hearts be a light as a song
May each day bring us bright, happy hours
That stay with us all year long.
And so, in the name of good St. Patrick
We offer this special prayer:
May all those— from anywhere and everywhere— who want to come to our shores
Be blessed with God’s love and tender care.
