our national patron saint was first brought to Ireland as a slave. He tended herds on Slemish mountain before escaping back home. During his captivity Patrick prayed many times each day, after his escape he realised he was being called back to Ireland to convert the Irish people. When his studies were complete, Patrick returned as a bishop and he began his mission to bring Christianity, sharing his faith with our country.
