Patrick:  A Story that Guides Us

St. Patrick was born into a wealthy Christian family.  When he was a teenager, raiders from Ireland kidnapped Patrick from Briton, took him to Ireland as a slave where he lived with hunger, privation and nakedness. In time, Patrick returned to the faith of his family.  Eventually he escaped Ireland, became a priest and bishop and returned to make disciples of Jesus Christ, bring freedom and hope to the needy  and plant churches throughout the land. 

Patrick’s story inspires us to be a church on mission. A church for the sake of others. We want to be like Patrick and the Christians who served God with him: a people on mission; a community of disciples of Jesus offering ourselves to God for the good of the world.
