  • St. Patrick

    Patron Saint

    St. Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland and of the Brothers of St. Patrick, is one of the world's most popular saints. Patrick was born around 385 AD in Scotland of Roman parents. As a boy of fourteen, he was captured during a raid party and taken to Ireland as a slave to tend sheep in a herd. During his captivity, he turned to God in prayer. Patrick's captivity lasted until he was twenty. He escaped after a dream in which God told him how to leave Ireland and return to Britain, his homeland. He had another dream in which he heard the Irish people begging him to come back to them.

    Later, he attained priesthood. He was ordained by St.Germanus, the Bishop of Auxerre.Later, Patrick was ordained a bishop, and was asked to take the Gospel to Ireland. He arrived in Ireland on March 25 433 AD at Slane. Patrick began preaching the Gospel throughout Ireland, converting many. He and his disciples preached and converted thousands and began building churches all over the country. Kings, their families, and entire kingdoms converted to Christianity on hearing Patrick's message. St. Patrick worked many miracles and wrote of his love for God. After years of living in poverty, traveling and enduring much suffering, he died on March 17 461 AD.

    St. Patrick
    Bishop Daniel Delany

    Founder of Patrician Brothers

    Bishop Daniel Delany founded Patrician congregation in 1808 in Ireland. His work with the people of Tullow made him realize that lack of education was the major cause for backwardness among the people. This inspired him to form the Patrician Community to address the social issues and concerns. The first community consisted of James Mc Mahan a school master, Ambrose Dawson, Richard Fitz Patrick and Maurice Cummins who were local tradesmen and laborers.

    In 1783, Delany was appointed Coadjutor (or Assistant) Bishop, and in 1787, became Bishop of Kildare & Leighlin. During his episcopacy, the circumstances of Catholics improved through the relaxation of the Penal Laws, and Bishop Delany aided this process through rebuilding churches, increasing the number of the clergy, promoting religious instruction and circulating useful books. In Tullow, he set up Sunday Schools for both children and adults.

    His predecessor, Bishop James Keeffe, had founded Carlow College in 1782, and Bishop Delany brought this project to fruition. In 1807 and 1808, he founded the Brigidine Sisters and Patrician Brothers respectively. Their primary mission was the education of the young continuing the work Bishop Delany began with the establishment of Sunday schools. He died on 9 July 1814.

    St. Patrick
    Congregation of Brothers of St. Patrick

    The Congregation of the Brothers of St. Patrick (popularly known as PATRICIAN BROTHERS) was begun in the small town of Tullow, Ireland in 1808. Though the congregation was set up in Ireland, the Brothers travelled across the world and extended their services. In 1846, the Brothers travelled across the Atlantic Ocean to Baltimore, USA; in 1875, the Archbishop of Madras invited the Brothers to India; in 1883, they were invited to Maitland, New South Wales, Australia, by the Bishop of that Diocese; in 1961, they went to Kenya. Today, following the footsteps of the Bishop Daniel Delany, Patrician Brothers established a number of educational institutions in Ireland, United States of America, India, Australia, Papua New Guinea and Kenya. The congregation has its headquarters known as Generalate in Tullow, Ireland. In India, it has its Provincialate in New Delhi. The present Superior General is Rev. Bro. Jerome Ellens, and the Indian and Ghana Provincial is Rev. Bro. A. Bosco, FSP and he resides at the Provincialate in New Delhi.
