A Franciscan friar showed off his impressive Irish stepdancing skills at the end of a St Patrick’s Day service at the Franciscan Food Center at St. Anthony's Shrine in downtown Boston.

Brother John Aherne led the gathering in prayer before dancing up a storm on a piece of wood apparently laid out beforehand for the presentation. His captivated audience clapped and cheered on the remarkable dancing friar.

Br. John concluded his performance by wishing everyone a happy St Patrick’s Day.
