Did you know that St. Patrick's Day is a feast day celebrated on March 17 in honor of a patron saint of Ireland named St. Patrick?
According to, he was born in Roman Britain in the late 4th century, kidnapped at the age of 16, taken to Ireland as a slave, escaped, and then returned about 432 CE to convert the Irish to Christianity. He had established numerous monasteries, churches, and schools, by the time of his death on March 17, 461. For more information, check out this website:
