    I was primarily opted to research about Saint Patrick for my birthday falls into his feast day.
    I wonder why the United States looks up to this day (March 17) so gleefully. I discovered that it is Saint Patrick's Day so I tried to google his identity and works.
    I can say that I am very proud of Saint Patrick and all that he's done.
    I commend this website for containing relevant information that really helped me in one way or another. Thanks a lot!

    I am not Catholic; I am a Lutheran, but I greatly admire the Catholic church, and one of my sisters converted to Catholicism and it was very dear to her. I wanted some info to share with my little grandson on St. Patrick and I just wanted you to know that I thank you for this info and may God bless you and this web site.

    Other sources have him born in 390 at Bannaventa, close to the Scotland/England border.

    Quote from the text: "Patrick was born around 385 in Scotland, probably Kilpatrick."

    How is this possible? The name "Kilpatrick" is the anglican form of "cill Padraig", which is Gaelic for "The Church of (Saint) Patrick".
