We start this page with 2 more photos from Peter Jennings
(source : "Illustrated" May 17th
1958 courtesy of PAT GRITTON)
An old copy of the "Illustrated"
magazine has been stored in Pat's attic for years
probably because it contained a short reference to St Columba's.
The caption to the accompanying photo reads
figures walk against a typical border country background.
White Fathers, Roman Catholic missionaries training
at St Boswells,
near Edinburgh, for Africa."
ARE THESE FACES FAMILIAR TO YOU ?
Were YOU at St Columba's in 1958 ?
" says Arthur McGuigan (24th August 2005).
" The three priests walking in the field with the Eildons in
the background, are, from left to right,
McKenna, Fr. Tom O'Donnell, and Fr. Aucoin. The three of them
were there when I was at St Columba's in 1958."
With Thanks to Fr Pierre Aucoin for confirming the identity of his two colleagues.
