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 kingdom of heaven is like …”

Jesus teaches us that He is patient and wants to give individuals time to repent. We continue to grow as individuals and as Church. Our faith may be small, but it continues to grow as we listen to and follow the Lord.

*** Vacation Bible School ***

It's time to decorate again! With Wierd Animals, we need CRAZY COLORS! Paints, tissue paper, poster board, fun noodles (yes, I am decorating with fun noodles), plastic table cloths and fabrics. The louder, the better. So, root through those closets, rummage through the attic, ransack the garage and, if you have to, raid the dollar stores. Let's make this the "brightest" VBS ever!

To help with decorations, contact Dianne Cizewski:
