A Small Island off the Coast of Scotland
Iona, a small island off the coast of Scotland, has long been a place of pilgrimage. Founded in the 6th century by St. Columba, it is now the site of a vibrant ecumenical Christian community with peace and justice at the heart of its mission. It is place of extraordinary beauty, a “thin place” where seen and unseen are close.
