It was during that stage of life that his attitude and beliefs towards God started changing. After six years he escaped from slavery when he dreamt of God giving him instructions for the same. He was taught priesthood in France. When he became a bishop he again dreamt of Irish people calling him and requiring his services. So he returned to Ireland with firm belief of converting pagans to Christians. Despite being arrested by the Celtic Druids several times he always managed to escape and was not deterred. He actively baptized and preached Christianity. He even used diplomacy like gifting people in kinglets and gifting lawgivers. For 20 years he had traveled throughout Ireland establishing monasteries across the country.

He was the grandson of a priest and the son of a tax collector. As a teen in the early 400 s Patrick was captured and brought over from Scotland to be a slave in pagan Ireland. For six years he slaved as a shepherd herding pigs and sheep and began to have religious visions. While spending time in prayer Patrick found himself retreating back to the God he had learned about when he was younger. Inspired by a dream he successfully escaped his bondage and went back to England traveling throughout the region. How did it begin? Irish immigrants coming to America brought their love of Saint Patrick with them.
