Patrick, born in Britain to a Roman family, was captured into slavery at the age of sixteen. He was brought to Ireland to labor as a herdsman. His faith only deepened, however, and after a mysterious dream, he fled to freedom.

Despite his experiences in Ireland, Patrick risks his life to return to the country that enslaved him for six years. Here, he serves as a missionary to the Picts and Anglo-Saxons, performing miracles and evangelizing the people of Ireland.
