Well, this is more than a little late, but having Lent, St. Patrick’s Day and Purim all in one week makes for a busy mama. Here are some links I thought you’d enjoy.

This is a written version of St. Patrick’s Breastplate, a prayer or hymn attributed to St. Patrick.

Here is the worship team from our church performing St. Patrick’s Breastplate a year or so ago. It ends with an Irish dance, so your kids will enjoy it.

Here’s a bio of St Patrick on the web, which is uite short, but pretty good.

Here’s a link to a Montesorri rainbow activity , if you want to go more rainbow/ shamrock activity.

Here’s another link with a preschool book on the story of St. Patrick and a simple shamrock activity. I love her website!

I enoyed St Patrick Pioneer missionary to Ireland by Michael McHugh as a longer book about Patrick’s life. It is out of print and I loaned out my copy and can’t find it. If you are out there and have it, can I have it back:)?

Here’s a group of Irish dancers that live in Middle TN. They’re performing tonight at Dan McGuiness in Nashville. If you can’t make it, here’s a video. The far away shots aren’t the best quality, but they are amazing!

And of course I’d be remiss if I didn’t include a recipe for Irish Soda Bread.

Enjoy the day, and remember to thank God for courageous men like Patrick who spread the word of God and changed the world!
