ST. PATRICK At Downpatrick

Yesterday was all about Mr. St Patrick himself. The day started off with a lesson from Billy Stevenson, he gave us a brief history lesson on what St Patrick's life was all about. After class we headed out to Saul Church, the dirt church St Patrick established in Ireland. It is gorgeous! It's placed right in the middle of beautiful Irish countryside. I was in awe. We went in and a sang a few worship songs, that was my favorite part! It was incredible to be able to worship in the first church in Ireland, but even more incredible that we are worshipping the exact same God as they did thousands of years ago! After the church we headed to St Patrick Centre, and Downpatrick Cathedral. At these places we saw the gravesite of St Patrick, and had the chance to walk through his life of ministry in the St Patrick Centre! I have never studied St Patrick before, so I really enjoyed getting the whole rundown of who he was and what his life was all about! (Emily Smith)
