Event Types :
You’ve probably heard the sayings, “may the wind be always at your back…” and “may you have Irish blessings in your heart!” Both common catchphrases of popular Irish proverbs, these sayings offer glimpses into Irish heritage. But in particular, they provide an entertaining journey into the life of St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, and the myths and misunderstandings that still surround him today.
In this interactive seminar presented by writer and professor Paul W. Jacob (Jake), you’ll learn about the life and legend of St. Patrick, delve into the evolution of St. Patrick’s Day and read famous Irish blessings and poems just in time for this joyous and holy holiday. Be prepared to participate in a fun and enlightening quiz on this Irish culture and history.
This program is presented by Paul W. Jacob (Jake) and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
