Inspired by the Holy Spirit, the mission of Saint Columba Parish is to develop, support and maintain a strong family community by instilling a love of the faith in all.

We fully participate in the liturgy, celebrate God’s Word, receive the Sacraments and continue faith formation.

Our members share their gifts and talents to provide outreach through various ministries, and respond compassionately to the needs of others in our parish, our community and the world.

Pastor’s Message - FOURTH SUNDAY OF LENT

     "John 3:16" is a sign that one can see oftentimes at sporting events.  It is: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have eternal life."  This verse contains all the essential elements of salvation.  God's love saves us!  When Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, those who looked at it were healed.  When we look at Jesus hanging on the cross, we are healed and saved.  When we look up to the cross of Jesus, things look up because He is the source of our salvation.
