The Office of Religious Education at St Columba has arranged for every member of the Parish to have access to Formed.Org. , the education site of the Augustine Institute. This site has thousands of resources for all ages in faith formation. You can create your own account for FREE. Some of our future Bible Studies will use Formed so that more of you can participate even from home. Parents, The Catholic Parent on FORMED features real Catholic parents sharing their struggles and victories. Through The Catholic Parent, the Catholic families will find solidarity and encouragement as they embrace their vital role as formators of their children. This is a wonderful series and very relatable to the “real life” of trying to live your faith in a house full of the chaos of parenting. even from home. Watch the trailer here!

Next Sunday’s Readings:
SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT
A homily is a speech or sermon given by a priest in a Roman Catholic Church after a scripture has been read. The purpose of the homily is to provide insight into the meaning of the scripture and relate it to the lives of the parishioners of the church.
Saint Columba Church records each Sunday’s homily and offers them here to you for reflection or a deeper understanding of the scripture.
Listen to Father Mowery/Deacon Tom Conlin’s most recent homilies below:

PRAYER FOR SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
A PARISH THANK YOU
