The Russian Orthodox Church has put St. Patrick on its calendar, on March 30th (March 17th Old Calendar).

Earlier this month, the church announced it would finally recognize the day in commemoration of Saint Patrick, a missionary who had lived in the 5th century and is now widely known as the patron saint of Ireland. Orthodox leaders told the Russian media they hoped that recognizing Saint Patrick and a number of other western saints would show the shared roots of different branches of Christianity, before the Schism of 1054 that divided the faith into East and West.

A quarter centoury ago I wrote a stanza for St. Patrick for use in the western hymn "By all Your Saints in Warfare"

It can be sung to any 7.6.7.6.D metered tune:

All praise for him whose mission
Was to the Em’rald Isle
Who preached the peace of Jesus
To tribes he’d once reviled.
Like him who used the shamrock
To teach Your unity
May we be ever faithful
To You, bless’d Trinity.
