Friends of Columbanus Bangor: Official Website Launch

The Friends of Columbanus Bangor website was launched on Wednesday 20th May at a ceremony in the North Down Museum Christian Heritage Gallery of the North Down Museum. Surrounded by pictures of Bangor’s saints the Mayor of Ards and North Down, Alderman Alan Graham, switched on the site.

The ceremony was attended by representatives of the Partner Churches of Friends of Columbanus, by representatives of the website designer Blue Monkee (a local Bangor firm) and the sponsor Denman International (also a Bangor firm), and by members of the Friends of Columbanus.

It marked the start of a busy period of activity in Bangor’s Christian Heritage which included the international conference on Columbanus and his Legacy and the opening of the Bells Exhibition.
