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 - SECOND SUNDAY OF EASTER

OR DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY

     We can look at Thomas as the “doubting Thomas,” the one who would not believe unless he could see, or we can look at him as the “desirous Thomas,” the one who really wanted to see and touch the Lord.  Thomas wanted the same experience as the other Apostles and he wanted to touch the Lord Jesus in order that he could know that Jesus was really alive.  We need to have that same desire to see Jesus and to know that He is risen and is in our lives.

                A way that helps us to know Jesus in our lives is to do what the early Christians did.  They joined together in prayer and the Lord revealed Himself to them in their communal prayer life.  As we gather in prayer during the celebration of the Eucharist, we can expect that the Lord will reveal Himself to us.  As we share our time, talent, and treasure with one another as the early Christians did, the Lord will be with us also.

                It is the ninth day since Good Friday when Jesus died for our sins.  It is Divine Mercy Sunday.  Accept the ocean of mercy that Jesus has for us.
