At the age of just sixteen Patrick was captured by a group of Irish pirates.
The raiders brought Patrick to Ireland where he was enslaved and held captive for six years. Patrick writes in ‘The Confession’ that the time he spent in captivity was critical to his spiritual development. He explains that the Lord had mercy on him. While in captivity, Saint Patrick worked as a shepherd and strengthened his relationship with God through prayer eventually leading him to convert to Christianity.
