St. Patrick’s Day, 17th March
We remember St. Patrick’s Day with a link to activity pages for you and an extract from a prayer with which he is associated.
Legend tells us that St. Patrick used the three leafed shamrock to explain to people how God is three persons in one God: there is one stem but three leaves on the shamrock, just as God is one God but is also God the Father, the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit.
St. Patrick is famous for bringing the news of Christ to Ireland a long, long time ago. St. Patrick has a beautiful prayer known as St. Patrick’s Breastplate in which he asks Jesus to be part of him, in him and around him at all times. You might like to say this prayer:
Christ with me,
