St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day this year will be a bit different for many of us without some of the parades, foot races and a little less partying.
I believe next year will be much better.
BOOK OF THE WEEK
A Dark History: Celts
By Martin J. Dougherty
Since St. Patrick’s Day is this coming week, I thought perhaps a book on the Celts may be appropriate. Oh, and it has lots and lots of pictures.

EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
Saint Patrick was a fifth-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland [and ] is the primary patron saint of Ireland.
Early medieval tradition credits him [ ] as the founder of Christianity in Ireland, converting a society practicing a form of Celtic polytheism. He has been generally so regarded ever since, despite evidence of some earlier Christian presence in Ireland.
According to Patrick’s autobiographical account, known as the Confessio, when he was about sixteen years old, he was captured by Irish pirates from his home in Britain and taken as a slave to Ireland, looking after animals; by his account, he lived there for six years before escaping and returning to his family in Britain, where he became a cleric.
Patrick eventually returned to Ireland, probably settling in the west of the island, where, in later life, he became a bishop and ordained subordinate clerics.
Saint Patrick’s Day is observed on 17 March, the supposed date of his death. It is celebrated inside and outside Ireland. (Source: Wikipedia)
