Come Home to Columb 2024: Saint Columbkille Hall of Honor

Saint Columbkille Hall of Honor

Join us as we induct the first five individuals to the Saint Cols Hall of Honor at our annual Come Home to Columb event. This year, our honorees are Leo F. Buckley ‘46, Michael L. Buckley ‘73, John Hoffman ‘79, Mary Donahue ‘66, and Sr. Mary Black, principal from 1971-74. Each of these individuals brings honor and distinction to Saint Cols.  Learn more about our inductees at the link here.


All high school and elementary alumni (21+), Saint Cols friends, and former staff are welcome, with a special invitation to the Class of '74 as they celebrate their 50th year!


Our program will include their accomplishments and time for each inductee to share a few words.  Let’s celebrate together what makes Saint Cols a memorable place to come home to. The last day to register is 5/31/2024!!
