On Sunday, February 23, after the 10:30 a.m. Mass, we will be having fellowship in the cafeteria to meet new friends and have some coffee and a bite to eat. It is the last Sunday before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, so it seems the perfect opportunity to share some homemade goodies. If you would like to bake for this event, you can bring it to the cafeteria before Mass.
St. Columba Church will be hosting a training session on Monday , February 24, 2020, from 6:30 p.m. to approximately 8:30 p.m. in the second floor of the Parish Center.

Let yourself be Led, Amazed, Known, Healed, Unbound and Loved in the six session “Lenten Longings” series by RENEW International. This series encourages participants to embrace the teaching of Christ that authentic loving involves self-surrender.
