 Saint Patrick’s Day

St. Pat window1396491_origSaint Patrick’s Day was originally a Roman catholic feast day for Ireland’s patron saint, celebrated only in Ireland since before the 1600’s. In the 1700’s it evolved into a secular holiday when Irish immigrants in the U.S. held some of the first St. Patrick Day parades.

St. patrick facts42St. Patrick, Irish missionary and bishop, is credited for converting Ireland to Christianity. He was not born Irish.  His parents were Romans living in Britain in charge of the colonies.  His real name was Maewyn Succat.  He took the name of Patrick upon becoming a priest. He was captured by pirates as a teen and spent 6 years in captivity when he turned to God in prayer. He became fluent in Irish while in captivity. He escaped after having a dream from God and was set the task of teaching Christianity to the Irish.  He preached and converted all over Ireland for 40 years. Saint Patrick died on March 17, hence the day we celebrate his life. St. Patrick is buried at the village of Downpatrick. St-Patricks-Day-Irish-Quotes-1
