St. Patrick's Day
St. Patrick - Patron of Ireland
In my family, St. Patrick's Day is HUGE! My father is named Patrick, as is his namesake, my younger brother Patrick. My sister Brady was born on, you guessed it...St. Patrick's Day! And to make it all even more perfect, (on March 17) Brady gave birth to her first son...yes, on her birthday! His name? You guessed it! Patrick!!! The latest addition to our family, Patrick III recently arrived on the scene, named after his daddy and grandpa. Every year our family looks forward to celebrating Irish style! We are happy to share the following resources and invite your contributions via email to Lisa@catholicmom.com.
