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 -

THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

     From daybreak until midday, Ezra read from the book and commented on the reading.  Quite a long reading and homily!  Jesus opened up the book of Isaiah from the Hebrew Scriptures and read a short reading and said succinctly: "Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing."  Quite a short homily!  Whether the reading and homily are long or short, the response should be that of the people: "Amen, Amen."  The sense is that we need to hear the word and act upon it.  Since it is the word of the Lord, it is imperative that we respond to the word that the Lord gives us.

*** 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.
