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 -

SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT

     The prophets, especially Isaiah, spoke of the coming of the Messiah.  This Messiah would be anointed with the Spirit and the sevenfold gifts of the Spirit would be upon Him.  He would bring about justice.  He would touch hearts so that the fiercest of enemies would become friends, as the image of the animals being together manifests.

                The last and greatest prophet, John the Baptist, reminded his followers that the Messiah was coming soon and that they should repent of their sins.

                We no longer have to wait for Jesus has already come.  Now it seems that the Messiah is waiting for us to come to Him that He may anoint us with His Spirit and that He may give us His daily forgiveness and that He would give all the power of the Spirit to be friends of one another.
