Hello! On Saturday morning, May 26, there is no Sacrament of Penance due to a morning wedding. There will still be opportunity for confessions from 3:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.

Monday of this week is Memorial Day.  We remember all those who have served our country in the Armed Forces and, in a special way, we remember those who paid the price of their lives for our freedom.  This is also a time of remembering all those who presently serve our country so that we can be the land of the free and the home of the brave.  Let us lift them in prayer.  MEMORIAL DAY MASS on Monday, May 27 is at Christ the King Mission at 9:00 a.m. and also at All Saints Cemetery, Elysburg at 10:00 a.m., weather permitting  (please bring lawn chairs).

YOU ARE INVITED TO THE LAST SCHOOL MASS, WITH BISHOP SENIOR on Wednesday, May 29 at 10:00 a.m. Please plan to join us as we conclude the school year and celebrate the wonderful legacy of our Saint Columba School.  If you would like to sing with the choir, we will practice at 9:00 a.m. that morning in the St. Cecilia room. Alumni, if you can attend, we’d invite you to be part of the entrance procession into Mass with current students, faculty, and staff to honor 70 years of Catholic School education!
