  1. 1. ST.PATRICK- OUR PATRON SAINT PAULINE O’SHEA
  2. 2. When he was young • St. Patrick was born in Wales. A country beside England, close to Ireland. • When he was a young boy, he was captured and taken to Ireland where he was sold as a slave to a farmer.
  3. 3. • 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 and to tell the Irish pagans (the people who didn’t know about God) all about Jesus. He became a priest.
  4. 4. Preaching in Ireland • He used the shamrock to explain to the Irish how to bless themselves and all about God, his son Jesus and the spirit inside of all of them.
  5. 5. • He is also said to have banished all the wild snakes from Ireland.
  6. 6. • He died on the 17th of March a long time ago after spending all his life teaching about God and encouraging people to become priests and bishops just like him.
  7. 7. St.Patrick’s Day • We celebrate St. Patrick’s 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.
