St Patrick

St Patrick

St Patrick is Ireland's most well known saint! His feast day is March 17th. He was brought as a slave from Wales to Ireland in the 5th century. During his lifetime, he converted pagans of Ireland to Christianity. One great story of Saint Patrick is that he drove away snakes from the island with a big bang of a drum. You're similar to St Patrick in that you are able to create big change! Congratulations!

St Brendan

Saint Brendan was known for his navigation skills and sailed to the Americas in the 5th Century. His feast day is May 16th. He is known for his legendary voyage across the Atlantic in a leather coracle. Like Brendan, you have a passion for adventure and exploration!

St Brigid

St Brigid

Saint Brigid was the daughter of a pagan who had been baptized by St. Patrick. Her feast day is February 1st. She prayed that her beauty be taken away so that she could become a nun instead of marrying. She is known for her generosity and care for the poor. Your concern for others makes you similar to Saint Brigid!

St Columba/Columcille

St Kevin

St Oliver Plunkett

St Oliver Plunkett

Saint Oliver is more of a political figure than a spiritual one. He was accused of treason, like many other Catholics of Ireland during the 17th Century. He was arrested and tried twice. After the second time, he was found guilty and sentenced to death by being hung, drawn and quartered. His feast day is July 1st. Like Saint Oliver, you are willing to sacrifice for your passions. You have a strong character and go after what you want.
