His Grace Bishop Thomas asks that we remember the community of St. Patrick Orthodox Church of Warrenton, VA  in our prayers. A fire burned down the new temple that was still in the process of being built by the congregation. Thanks be to God, no one was harmed. Local news has covered the story in the July 25 piece,  "Fire destroys future home of church near Bealton."...

I've seen Icons of St. Patrick even on this forum and he lived and died well before the 11th century so I don't see why he wouldn't be a Saint in EOxy.

As far as I am aware, the Greeks do not have him on the calendar.  However, I believe ROCOR has him on their calendar on the second of April.

Yes, St. Patrick is definitely an EO saint, but he is mostly assoc. with Western churches since he was the missionary to Ireland.  IIRC, this particular parish was a WR parish so it seems rather appropriate to take St. Patrick as their patron.  There are many pre-schism saints from the British Isles.  (St. David, St. Brendan, St. Columba, St. Aiden, etc. etc. etc.)
http://orthodoxengland.org.uk/zliturgics.htm

I think there are many saints are who more acknowledge or revered within certain jurisdictions and/or countries than in others.  Do many Serbians revere St. Nektarios? Or do the Greeks have many feast days for the new martyrs of Russia?  It happens. That doesn't mean they're not Orthodox.
