Winterfest at St. Columba

Winterfest 2022 was amazing!

Our 18th annual Craft and Food Festival took place on Saturday, November 19, in the gymnasium and cafeteria, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We showcased our famous Dollar Tree, our delicious baked goods, and vendors. You had a choice to Dine-In or Take-Out food from our kitchen including a variety homemade soups, chili, Haluski, Pierogies, Steph’s subs, BBQ, Mac & cheese, pizza & hotdogs and once again offering Fr. Mowery’s Lasagna. And don’t forget Tuesday Crew’s wood creations in the cafeteria.

Parking is available in five parish lots including the new large area just off Iron Street. Volunteers are needed: please consider helping! Proceeds benefit St. Columba School. You can call the school (570-784-5932) or the church office (570-784-0801) to volunteer. Thank you.

Dollhouse showcases 2022 festival

Special this year for Winterfest. A generous parishioner spent his time constructing a dollhouse during the pandemic and donated it to our annual festival.

But this is no ordinary dollhouse. Hardwood floors, classic wallpaper, a second-story balcony, and doors and windows that open and close.

During Winterfest, this magnificent home will be on display .
UPDATE: This house now has a home. Thank you to the new owners.
