Please purchase gift cards through St. Columba for groceries, restaurants, gas, shopping, etc., and monetary rewards will come directly to St. Columba School. You may also order online at http://www.raiseright.com/ or you can also use the Raise Right Fundraising App on your phone. Call the school or parish office for the enrollment code to place your first order.

FORMED Christmas Gift

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!
