Celebrating 60 Years

Live, Learn, Lead and Serve

On 1 October 1957, the first Oblate missionaries arrived at Lindum. 

They made a firm commitment to enhancing the educational opportunities of local families in a Catholic faith context.

From 1957 to 2017

Iona began with a farmhouse on a large parcel of land in Lindum on 1 October 1957.  
As we begin our anniversary celebrations, take a look at the changes during the past 60 years.
