St Patrick Peg Doll

15.00

St. Patrick

St. Patrick (~390-461), one of the patron saints of Ireland, is painted holding a shamrock, which he used to teach people about the Trinity.  Each doll is 3.5 inches tall, hand painted, and sealed to ensure durability. These peg dolls make excellent gifts for children as they allow children to learn and interact with the saints in a tactile manner.  They also make great gifts for those named after the saint or are of Irish heritage.


Feast Day: March 17

St. Patrick was born in Scotland. When he was 16, he was captured and brought to Ireland as a slave to tend sheep. While working, he prayed often and grew in faith. After 6 years, he escaped and returned home. However, he returned to Ireland as a Christian missionary.  Stories tell of him teaching the Irish about the Holy Trinity by showing them a shamrock, which is now a central symbol of St. Patrick’s Day.

Each peg doll has a card with a short biography on it. These peg dolls were hand painted with love and care by an Orthodox woman in Cincinnati, OH.
