Parish Highlights


You are warmly invited to join us for an hour of prayer and pro-life witness at the Town Fountain this year on Respect Life Sunday, October 4, from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. During this pandemic, as concern for health and safety has risen, abortions continue at an alarming rate. Thousands of lives are taken by abortion every day in this country, and on Respect Life Sunday, we assemble at the fountain to show the community peacefully that we stand with the most vulnerable and voiceless among us. We will meet by the fountain and socially distance in the surrounding area. Masks must be worn for public safety and to reinforce our pro-life commitment to the community. Signs (your choice) will be given to you.
Call Rhonda Dougherty 784-7616 for more information.


Join us today for the Mass of the Twenty-Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time, celebrated by Monsignor Robert E. Lawrence, Pastor, with Catherine Chayko, Director of Music.

REMINDER: All our Mass and Music videos are available on the Saint Columba Parish YouTube Channel. 

Mike, the owner of Towne Camera on West Main Street, is graciously sharing his beautiful telephoto lens for us to use when recording Monsignor’s Masses. When you see Mike, let him know that we appreciate his generosity.

With God, All Things Are Possible

Welcome to One and All!

We are pleased that you are inquiring about our parish of Saint Columba! We are the only Roman Catholic parish in Bloomsburg, PA, and we are located in the downtown area, at the corner of Iron Street and Third Street. As you look through our website, you will learn about our parish. We are a part of the Diocese of Harrisburg with a parish of 1,136 households with 2,356 registered individuals. We are fortunate to have an elementary school, pre-school through eighth grade, attached to our parish. For those who attend public school, we have a Religious Education program on Sunday between our two morning Masses. In addition to our religious education classes, we have Life Teen for the ninth through twelfth-grade students on Sunday evenings and Aftershock for those in seventh and eighth grades on Saturday evenings. Masses are celebrated for the weekend on Saturday evenings at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Daily Masses are celebrated at 7:30 a.m., Monday through Friday, and at 8:00 a.m. on Saturdays. The Sacrament of Penance is celebrated on Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Our weekend liturgies are celebrated with devotion, accompanied by liturgical music.
As you peruse our website, you will get a good idea of our parish. When you come to our church, you will have a better feel for what St. Columba Church really is.

St. Columba Church Pastor Monsignor Robert E. Lawrence
