After the success of last year’s event in St. Anne’s Cathedral Belfast, the Children’s Council, Connor is bringing Patrick’s Mysterious Adventure back again in 2018. This time the event will be held in St. Patrick’s Church Broughshane and will compliment other activities going on in the village and surrounding area on 17th March.
So, what is Patrick’s Mysterious Adventure?
It’s an all-age exhibition and story trail, themed around the life of Ireland’s patron saint Patrick. Live actors will re-enact the tale from Patrick’s capture by Irish pirates to his return to serve the people of Ireland that he loved so well. Visitors will have the opportunity to connect with the life story of Saint Patrick, discover more about him and be inspired by his faith and faithfulness to God.
