Look around the stores and St. Patrick’s Day seems to be about lucky clovers, rainbows and leprechauns. But the real Saint Patrick was an amazing and bold missionary who faced tremendous danger to take the gospel back to his enemies.
This is a great opportunity to explore the Trinity, missions and celebrate the legacy of the real Saint Patrick. This post is chock-full of activities and resources but first, let’s look at the story of the St. Patrick.
The Story of the Real Saint Patrick
Fun fact: Patrick was not Irish and not born not in Ireland.
He was actually born in Roman Britain in the mid-400’s, in the area of Scotland or Wales. He grew up on a farm and though his family was active in the village church, Patrick was not a believer.
