Unveiling of the St. Columban Cemetery Monument

On Saturday, July 3rd 2010, the descendants, and friends, of St. Columban unveiled the Cemetery monument dedicated to the original Irish Settlers in St. Columban

The unveiling started with a small procession at 11am from the Church at St. Colomban to the Cemetery. There was small ceremony to unveil and bless the stone walls.

We encourage everyone that didn't make it to the ceremony to visit the cemetery to see the new monument walls.
