17 March…

Happy Saint Patricks Day!

Did you know the Christian Irish saint was actually born in Great Britain? Having been captured by Irish raiders at age 16, St Patrick was taken to Ireland as a slave and worked on the farm lands for the next six years.

Having escaped capture, Patrick returned to Britain and entered into the church. Like his father and grandfather, St Patrick became a missionary and returned back to Ireland to preach for next 28 years.

St Patrick died on 17 March 461, in Ireland near the first church he built.
