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 -


     Abraham is our father in faith.  He was asked whether he was willing to offer his son, Isaac.  When God saw that he was willing to trust Him, God rewarded his trust by  promising him that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars in the sky and the sands on the seashore.

     As Jesus came to prayer, the Father gave Him the experience of the event of the Transfiguration. This experience of the appearance of Moses and Elijah reassured Jesus that He was the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets.  As we walk the journey of faith and as we trust in God, the Lord will give us reassurances that we are listening correctly to Him.  This journey into the desert, this Lent, this Retreat, is a time to listen closely to the Lord and to tell Him that we will do our best to trust Him and to have faith in Him.
