The name Patrick is from latin and signifies noble. As a young boy, St Patrick was very devout and was instructed in sacred learning. As a man of just 16 years, St Patrick was stolen from his father’s farm by Irish raiders who sold him into slavery. During his time in slavery, St Patrick held with his practice of saying many prayers to God each day and night. St Patrick escaped from the slavery six years later and travelled a difficult journey to his original home. Having been held captive by the pagan Irish people, St Patrick devoted his life to bringing the Christian faith to the Irish people.
St Patrick studied at a monastery in France and became a priest. After about fifteen years, St Patrick was made a bishop and went to the north and west parts of Ireland where he was welcomed. He established many churches throughout Ireland and converted many of the pagan people by teaching them all about the Catholic religion.
St Patrick taught the people about the Trinity and used the Shamrock as an example of how the three leaves are of one plant. It is believed that he drove out all evils from the land of the Irish. The legend is that St Patrick used a staff which was given to him by Jesus to drive out all the snakes from Ireland. St Patrick told of his own conversion and of the gifts and strength which God had given him. This story of St Patrick’s is known as the Confession, St Patrick is the patron of Ireland.

Hail Glorious St Patrick
Hail, glorious St Patrick! We honor thy name, Tho Erin may claim thee, the world knows thy fame. The faith of our fathers is our treasure too. How holy the thought, that they learned it from you. Thru crosses and trials, its fires burn bright. They show us the way, and the truth, and the light, Great Saint.
Intercede, that we always may be devoted and loyal, true children of thee. Our love and devotion be ever like thine, our thoughts be of Jesus, our heart be His shrine. And when to the end of life’s path we have trod, be near us great Bishop, anointed of God.
