Prayer to St. Colmcille
Dear Colmcille, Saint of great gifts. Protect us every hour from
Early morning and during the day. Fill our hearts with pure love of God 
To do His blessed will, as you yourself would do. Amen.
Colmcille

COLMCILLE OF DURROW    
Saint Colmcille, founder of Durrow Abbey and Patron of Durrow, was a native of Donegal. As well as founding other monasteries, Colmcille spent a great part of his life on the island of Iona off the coast of Scotland. This week we are pleased to bring you some beautiful pictures from the area of Donegal which was home to the young Colmcille. <<Click Here>> for more information.
