CATHOLIC SCHOOLS’ WEEK

We are beginning our annual celebration of Catholic Schools’ Week on Sunday, January 30 at the 10:30 a.m. Mass. St. Columba School, through its teaching and atmosphere, is committed to passing on a living faith in Jesus Christ. St. Columba School invests in our future, which is our students. 

We take this opportunity to thank the parish for its support of our school, to thank the parents of our school children for believing in our school, to thank the students for their cooperation, and to thank the administration, faculty, and support personnel for their dedication. 

Contact the school for an in-person tour and to find out more information about their upcoming virtual Open House. 

BLESSING OF THROATS

February 3 is the feast of St. Blaise, the day on which we traditionally bless throats. The story is that St. Blaise miraculously cured a little boy who nearly died because of a fishbone in his throat. We pray that God will protect us through his prayer. “Through the intercession of Saint Blaise, bishop and martyr, may God deliver you from every disease of the throat and from every other illness.” We will bless throats after all the Masses the weekend of February 6. 

With God, All Things Are Possible

Fr. Richard Joseph Mowery, Pastor

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., Tuesday 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. Our Parish Office is open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
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.

Fr. Richard Joseph Mowery, Pastor
