About St. Patrick
St. Patrick was one of the great missionaries of Europe and lived a truly extraordinary life. He was a Romano-Briton Christian, born in the mid-fourth century during the decline of Roman rule in the Britain. At the age of 16 he was captured by pirates and sold into slavery in Ireland. During his six years in captivity he learned the Irish language and culture. After escaping back to Britain, Patrick entered the Church and was ordained a bishop. With true love for the people of Ireland, Patrick returned to the place of his captivity as a missionary. He preaching the Gospel throughout Ireland for the last fifteen years or so of his life and died around 440. By the sixth century, with the conversion of Ireland largely complete, Patrick was recognized as the island’s patron saint. His work had a profound impact on the history of Christianity in Europe, because Irish missionaries to continental Europe during the sixth and seventh centuries were instrumental in the conversion of the Barbarian tribes who had dismembered the Roman Empire.
