St Columba

In the 5th Century, St Columba set sail from Ireland on a quest to found a monastery. Eventually he settled on the island of Iona, off the coast of Scotland. Columba was a missionary, diplomat and a man of learning. He built many churches including the Monastery on Iona which was renowned throughout the British Isles as a place of learning and a place to grow in the Catholic Faith. Our aim is to follow the example set by St Columba so that Columba in Bunyip will be renowned for the excellence of its learning programs and its commitment as a faith community.
