Brief History of St. Patrick\'s Day
The holiday remembers St. Patrick, one of Ireland\'s patron saints. St. Patrick was
born to a family of aristocrats in Whales and was set on course to become a priest.
He was captured at 16 years of age and taken to Ireland by Irish raiders. For six
years, he was held captive, but was also able to grow spiritually during this time.
He believed he heard the voice of God commanding him to leave Ireland, so he escaped
to Britain after walking hundreds of miles.
