Monday, May 23, 2016 by Office of Communications

Bishop Richard J. Malone, bishop of Buffalo, has approved a recommendation that the Diocese of Buffalo sell the St. Columban Center, which is located along the shores of Lake Erie in Derby.

The property is listed at $1.9 million.

“We review diocesan operations and assets on a regular basis,” Bishop Malone said, “and we have determined that now is the time to put the Columban Center on the market.”

Located on Lake Shore Road, the Columban Center has been the diocesan retreat center for decades, hosting individual and directed retreats and other events for thousands, young and old. In 2010, Christ the King Seminary expanded its offering of retreats to the Derby facility.
