Video #10: March 14, 2019: Who is St. Patrick?
Set free, only to return to his captors ... learn about the saint who saved Ireland.
St. Patrick, an Englishman by birth, becomes the patron saint of Ireland. Captured and enslaved in Ireland as a child, Patrick escapes years later and eventually becomes a priest. He returns to the Emerald Isle, obeying God's call, and devotes his entire life to evangelize the country.
How would you respond to God's call? Fr. Tony and Alan McCauley reflect on how we can learn from St. Patrick's tremendous faith and courage. You'll even learn why the shamrock is so important to St. Patrick, and it won't be why you think it is!
Join Alan McCauley, local saint expert and theology educator, and Fr. Tony Zimmer of St. Anthony on the Lake in Pewaukee.Together, they’ll explore the beloved saint, Patrick.
