St. Patrick's Day History & Activities

Hey Girls

St. Patrick's Day is coming up soon. So if you would like to know a little about him. He was born in Roman Britain. He was born to a wealthy family. His father and grandfather were the deacons of the church. When Patrick was 16 he was taken prisoner by Irish Raiders. He was taken to Ireland to be a slave. In a dream God told him to flee captivity. He walked nearly 200 mile from a place called Mayo to the Irish Coast. There he got on a ship and went back to Britain. When he got to Britain he went to a church and studied to be a priest. In 431 he was called to Ireland to preach God word. The Irish people said that he used a shamrock to describe the trinity. After 30 years of being an Evangelist he died Mar 17, 461. He was buried at Downpatrick. I have a word search and a word shape puzzle for you to try. Have a great day and God Bless.
