Past Come Home to Columb Events
Each year, Saint Columbkille Partnership School and the Alumni Association host a reunion event for all Saint Cols alumni called Come Home to Columb. The event honors a dedicated alumnus who has made a significant impact on the school, and raises funds for the Alumni Scholarship Fund to provide financial aid to current Saint Columbkille students.
