St. Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland. He was kidnapped at age 16 and taken to Ireland as a slave. After six years he escaped and studied to be a priest. After being ordained a bishop, Pope Saint Celestine sent him to England and Ireland where he was instrumental in converting much of the population to Christianity. This handcrafted plaque measures 7 by 10 inches and is cast in stone. It is a wonderful addition to any home or church. Appropriate for indoor/outdoor use.
