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 -

PENTECOST SUNDAY

     Today is the feast of Pentecost, the birthday of the Church.  Jesus had spent His life here on earth to establish the Church and to teach the Apostles who, in turn, would hand on His teachings for all times.  Just as the story of the creation of Adam depicts God breathing “into his nostrils the breath of life, and so man became a living being,” so the Father gave the breath of the Holy Spirit through Jesus and, subsequently, the Holy Spirit gave breath and life to the Church.

                The Holy Spirit continues to guide and direct the Church, which is all of us.  The giving of the Holy Spirit transformed the lives of the early disciples.  That same Holy Spirit has been given as a gift from the Father to us to transform us also.  “Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love.  Send forth your spirit and we shall be created and you shall renew the face of the earth.”

  1. -Msgr. Bob Lawrence
