St. Patrick, a Roman citizen, was captured by Irish raiders at the age of 12 and sold into slavery in Ireland. During the six years of servitude, he underwent a religious transformation. Patrick managed to escape to Gaul and there received training from St. Germanus. He returned to Ireland and proved himself to be a great missionary, converting people in the five kingdoms. Details about his life are mixed with the legends that sprang up about him, the most famous being his expulsion of snakes from Ireland.
The St. Patrick Sterling Silver Medal honors him as the Patron Saint of Ireland. His Feast Day is March 17.
