Its been 30 years – the spirit is strong. There was no pretentious judging, prejudice or malice on the night – we were all accepting of each others life decisions and professions – doctors, lawyers, truck drivers, police officers, concreters, carers. We all came together to share stories and memories. St Columban's taught us this and we live it today. It was a celebration in life - we congratulated each other for getting this far in life. We hope to congratulate each other again in 10 years time
