SAINT PATRICK: Y2/3
Class Teacher: Mr Bullock Teaching Assistant: Mrs Hey
We are very proud of our Class Saint, Saint Patrick.
Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and Nigeria. He was born in a village in Roman Britain. When he was 16 years old he was captured and sold into slavery. He also married couples when the king prohibited it.
Saint Patrick came from a Christian family. He was the son of Calpornius, who was a deacon. He brought Christianity to Ireland. He converted many pagans to Christianity. He also challenged many of their leaders and druids and they worked together to convert many other pagans.
St. Patrick's Day is celebrated every year on March 17th in his honour. We are very excited to celebrate this day, and have already started making preparations. We invite you to join us for Mass on this day, to celebrate our Class Saint, Saint Patrick.
