St. Patrick’s Day is this Thursday. We’re joined by Sister Margaret Harte. She’s the Principal at St. Patrick’s School in Robertsdale. She’s also an Irish nun who’s lived in America since 1980. Harte came in to talk about the history, myths and legends associated with St. Patrick. He helped bring Christianity to Ireland.
In the centuries since St. Patrick’s Day has turned into a celebration of Irish heritage. It is still considered a church holiday in some Christian denominations.
