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 -


A Happy and Blessed Easter to all from the leadership and staff of St. Columba Church! May the Risen Lord fill each and every one of you and your loved ones with hope, joy, and peace! The Lord is risen and is with us, Alleluia! I take this opportunity to express the appreciation of all the parishioners of St. Columba Church to all those who cleaned the church, to those who assisted in the Holy Week ceremonies, and to those who decorated the church for this Easter season. The beauty of the liturgies and the decoration of the church help us to build up our faith. Thank you to all who worship with us and aid in our Spirit-filled liturgies. Jesus is risen and is with us! This Easter event gave hope to the early disciples who had witnessed the death of Jesus. By His resurrection, Jesus proved that what He had promised would be fulfilled. We celebrate the most important feast of the year because Easter gives us the promise of eternal life with Jesus. As He died and rose, so we die and rise to share His glory. Our baptism reminds us that Jesus gave us new life and asks us to follow in His footsteps. Today we renew our baptismal promises and profess in Jesus. During this Easter season we will have the rite of sprinkling at each weekend Mass to remind us of the new life given us through baptism and through the resurrection of Jesus. Have a wonderful Easter season!
