Welcome to our website!

The foundation of St. Colman’s was inspired by Father William P. Sheehan of St. Patrick’s Church in West Troy and five Sisters of the Presentation from Fermoy, Ireland in 1882—with the goal of founding a Home for Children in order to keep orphaned siblings from being separated.

Today, St. Colman’s continues to meet the needs of families and children in the 21st century. We continue to care for the religious, physical, intellectual, moral and social development of the children.
