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 -


     The doctrine of the Most Holy Trinity is that there are three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who share the one divine nature.  These three Persons existed from all eternity and are equally to be adored.  What it means for us is threefold: 1) we have a Father who adopted us into His family, who calls us His beloved children, and who shares His life with us; 2) we have a big brother, Jesus, who has experienced all that we can experience and who shows us how to handle everything; 3) we have a Holy Spirit who enlightens us and strengthens us that we might follow the Lord Jesus, and, thereby, become holy and share everlasting happiness.  It is more important to experience the Trinity than to explain it.

            As we begin Mass, we are greeted with: “the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.”

*** 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.
