St. Colman of Cloyne's feast day is November 23
and we celebrate this special day every year near that date. St. Colman was born in 530 A.D. He became highly educated as a bard in Ireland, a prolific poet who shared his talents and the news from his many travels with royal courts all over Ireland. He became a Christian, a monk and a priest later in life after being taught by Brendan of Clonfert. Eventually as Bishop, Colman established monasteries and churches all over Ireland. He died in 606 A.D. Today in Ireland many places are named for St. Colman, including the Cathedral of St. Colman of Cloyne which sits high above the harbor in Cobh, County Cork. For many of our immigrant ancestors, the Cathedral was likely the last bit of Ireland they saw as they sailed to America from Cobh. Some of the craftspeople and artisans who built the Cobh Cathedral also designed and decorated our own St. Colman Church in Cleveland. Our founding Pastor, Fr. Eugene O’Callaghan, immigrated to Cleveland from County Cork and no doubt grew up hearing all about the life of St. Colman of Cloyne, a local legend.
