St. Patrick, somewhere between the ages of 14-16 was kidnapped
 from Britain and brought to Ireland where he was sold as a slave.

St. Patrick's faith was harden while hiding in a monastery after he had a dream from God telling him to flee Ireland.

St. Patrick was in his 30's when he became one of the first Christian missionaries in Ireland.

St. Patrick helped bring Christianity to Ireland, and drive out Paganism.
St. Patrick, along with his disciples, traveled all about Ireland teaching his faith, converting the clan chiefs, building Christian churches, opening sound schools and monasteries, and convincing the Irish pagans to convert to Christianity!

St. Patrick used shamrocks, a beautiful green three leaved clover to teach the concept of the Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

                   Happy St. Patrick's Day!
