Title: ST.PATRICK- OUR PATRON SAINT


1
  • ST.PATRICK- OUR PATRON SAINT
  • PAULINE OSHEA

2
When he was young
  • St. Patrick was born in Wales in 387. His family
    were Romans. He lived in a villa in the country.
    He was captured and taken to Ireland where he was
    sold as a slave to a farmer who lived in Antrim.

3
His escape
  • The farmer's name was Milchu. Patrick minded
    sheep on a hill. He wasn't looked after very
    well.. He prayed every night. Then one night he
    heard a voice. It was God. He was telling him he
    had to escape. He thought he was dreaming but God
    told him he wasn't.

4
Back home
  • He escaped and eventually got back to Wales. He
    wasn't there long when again he heard the voice
    telling him to go back to Ireland to tell the
    Irish pagans all about Jesus. He realised then
    that he wanted to become a priest. It wasn't
    easy. He went to St. Martins Monastery in Tours,
    France to train. Then he went back to England.

5
Preaching in Ireland
  • When Patrick returned to Ireland to preach, the
    people were astonished that he could speak their
    language. He used the shamrock to explain the
    Blessed Trinity- God the Father, God the Son and
    God the Holy Spirit. He is also said to have
    banished the snakes from Ireland.

6
Later life
  • He spent sixty years in Ireland. During that time
    he consecrated 350 Bishops to follow his ways. He
    died on the 17th of March 493 in Sabhall in
    County Down.
  • This is his grave in Downpatrick, also in county
    Down.

7
St.Patricks Day
  • We celebrate St. Patricks day on the 17th of
    March. Everywhere in the world where there are
    Irish people it is a big feast day. People have
    parades and parties and all remember St. Patrick
    and the country from which they come Ireland.
