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 -


     Today, the first Sunday of Advent, is the beginning of the new liturgical year.  The season of Advent reminds us of the threefold coming of the Lord Jesus.  We commemorate His first coming in Bethlehem; we look forward to His coming at the end of the world; we hope to recognize His coming to us each day in different ways.  During this season of Advent we pray that we may fittingly prepare for His threefold coming.

  1. -Msgr. Bob Lawrence

*** Library Update ***

One of our parishioners, Dr. Bill Zehringer, has placed a copy

of his recently published young adult novel, I WANT A HERO, among the volumes reposing on the shelves in our Parish Library.  It may be found in the Children's Book Section.  He is excited to share his story with as many young readers as possible.
