The property encompassing the original St. Columbkille Church and Cemetery was donated by Mrs McCarty, Mr. John Johnson, and Mr. John Ganey I. In 1850, a log church, St. Columbkille was built. In those days, Masses were celebrated as they could be scheduled by the Redemptorist Fathers, who traveled there on horseback from St. Joseph Seminary in Kirkwood, Missouri.
In 1853, Father Phillip Grace was appointed pastor of St. Patrick's (about 4 miles south of Pacific) and St. Columbkille's, and alternated the celebration of Mass between the two parishes. In 1864, the log church was replaced by a frame building, which was eventurally demolished around 1960 after Our Lady Queen of Peace was constructed as a replacement for both the St. Columbkille and St Philomena parishes. The cemetery has consistently been used since 1850, and in 2014, a pavilion was erected on the site of the original church by the Ganey family. A Mass is celebrated at the pavilion on Labor Day.
