Unfortunately, all of the world’s 2020 St. Patrick’s Day celebrations have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the one in Chicago. In Chicago they typically dye the river green in observance.

Who was St. Patrick?

Saint Patrick was not born in Ireland . He was born in Scotland to Roman parents. Taken as a slave to Ireland, he lived there, escaped, and later returned as a missionary, bring the Christian Gospel to Ireland.
