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 -


     It is nice when we do nice things.  It is great for others and for ourselves when we do them out of a great love for God and for others.  The sacred word today reminds us to do everything from the heart.  In our human language, the heart is the source of our love.  When we keep the commandments or when we pray, we need to put our hearts into it.  Also good and evil come from the hearts.  We need to put our hearts into the heart of Jesus in order that good may emanate from our hearts.

*** 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.
