The fantastic Patrick’s Mysterious Adventure is back again for its third year this March with the saint’s story coming to life in Christ Church Parish, Lisburn.
This is a joint venture by Connor Diocese Children’s Council and Christ Church staff and parishioners.
Patrick’s Mysterious Adventure is 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.
