Saint Patrick's Day 2010
Did You Know? - Two authentic letters from him survive, from which come the only universally accepted details of his life. When he was about 16 he was captured from Britain by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Ireland, where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After entering the Church, he returned to Ireland as an ordained bishop in the north and west of the island, but little is knownabout the places where he worked.By the eighth century he had come to be revered as the patron saint of Ireland.
He could NOT be with us today so we substituted someone almost as old... Paul
