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 -


     Another prophet, Jeremiah, is in the forefront today.  Jeremiah is speaking a tough word to those shepherds who were serving themselves. 

                Jesus comes as the Good Shepherd for He comes to serve others and He has compassion on the abandoned flock.  The Lord formed the Apostles and sent them out to preach.  Now the Apostles are returning to report on their success.  Jesus invites even the new shepherds to an out of the way place in order that He might renew them.  Jesus taught both the sheep and the shepherds because He brought refreshing words of truth and compassion.
