The Life of Saint Patrick Biography Worksheet
Saint Patrick Biography
Saint Patrick was born in Britain around 385. He was kidnapped by pirates and taken to Ireland as a teenager to become a slave and shepherd. During his captivity he kept a strong faith in God and prayed daily. After six years of servitude, God led him to escape and return home to England. He became a priest and later bishop, but his heart remained with the people of Ireland. Saint Patrick went back to preach and teach the Celtic people who were lacked Christian faith and believed in druidism. He brought Christianity to the island and worked many miracles there. He used many creative teaching methods to explain Christianity to people who did not know about God. He was best known for his use of a shamrock (three-leaf clover) to teach people about the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. During his time in Ireland he baptized thousands of new Christians and ordained many priests to carry on the missions there. After forty years of preaching the Gospel in Ireland, he died on March 17th, a day people around the world celebrate as Saint Patrick’s Day.
