This Sunday, we celebrate Scout Sunday. We congratulate all our various levels of Scouts on their annual celebration. It is great that you are involved in the Scouting program because it can help you become a better person.

Mandated by the III Plenary Council in 1884, National Collection for Black and Indian people continues as the embodiment of the Church’s concern for evangelizing the Black and Indian peoples of the United States.

On Sunday, February 19, after the 8:00 a.m. and 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.

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 Sundays between our two morning Masses. In addition to our religious education classes, we have Life Teen for the eighth through twelfth-grade students on Sunday 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.
