St. Patrick's Day 

 It's another fun holiday to celebrate with wearing green and decorating with shamrocks, etc... But do you know the whole story about St. Patrick? Go to the link below to read about him. Talk about him to your children all week until next Wednesday. There is so much more to him than just what the world has commercialized.  For example, he used shamrocks to describe the Trinity~Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
