Witnessing Stories

St Patrick’s Day Evangelism! :-)

St Patrick’s Day (March 17) opens a terrific opportunity to share the gospel. Although most people don’t know this, St. Patrick was actually a great missionary and hero of the faith. This gives us an open door to bring up spiritual things with people this week. We can just ask “Do you know who St Patrick really was?” and then give them some information about it.

If there is a parade in your town, consider pulling a group together, printing tracts on light green paper, and go spread the gospel! Last year we had such an exciting time….see report HERE!

Even if you can’t go to a parade, consider printing some and passing them out to cashiers, neighbors, friends, etc. Just today I passed out some St Patrick’s tracts to two cashiers and they both responded with interest and gratefulness. They (like most people) were curious about who he really was!


  1. Thanks so much for sharing those tracts! It came in perfect timing. Last night was the last night of my sign language class and I really wanted to hand out some tracts. How much easier it was to ask people if they wanted to read about the history of St. Patrick’s day! And the people responded with enthusiasm….I almost laughed as I really knew that the Gospel was in the tract & everyone was so excited to receive one. 🙂 Thanks again so much–God’s timing is always perfect. God bless!

  2. What a great idea! I just printed off one of your tracts to pass around here at home. 🙂

  3. Grace, when I saw those tracts I thought that they were really cool and I wanted to pass some out. Unfortunately Thursday I was “to busy” and ended up hanging out with friends instead. I felt bad because I had really felt like I was supposed to hand out some of those tracts. Friday my parents told me, my mom, and my brother were going to go minster to the homeless tomarrow(Saturday). I was so excited because I had never done anything like that before. That is when I thought of the tracts. My mom was not sure if I would be allowed to pass any out but I took some anyways along with some beaded bobby pins I had made. While we were there I handed them to people that I felt called. One lady’s reaction was “Saint Patrick was a real person? I thought he was a myth like Santa Claus!”. It was amazing to see such destitution but still many had hope. We got to minister to them through giving to, worshiping with, praying for,and just loving on them. It was so exciting! Thank you so much for tracts, they really came in handy!
