Christianity is a faith with a long and detailed history, with numerous events of lasting significance occurring throughout the ages.

Each week brings the anniversaries of great milestones, horrid tragedies, amazing triumphs, telling tribulations, inspirational progress, and everything in between.

Here are just a few things that happened this week, March 11-17, in Church history. They include the death of Saint Patrick, the Church of England ordaining female priests, and an anti-Nazism declaration from Pope Pius XI.
