Dedicated and completed in 1898 by and for Irish immigrants, today St. Columba is a parish that is culturally diversified and still serves a new immigrant population. We are a community where diversity is richly celebrated and serves as a testimony of the event of Pentecost. We are a community that prays, celebrates, works and suffers together.

All the volunteer teachers in the Religious Education Program, the members of the choir, the faithful lectors, the advisory board, and the many people who volunteer their time and talent to keep St. Columba Church, the strong symbol of the beautiful people it serves.
May God’s work continue to be carried on as faithfully in the future as it has been in the past and present.

What did Pope Francis Said?
Consacrated your life is to serve God and your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Cada persona consagrada es un don para el pueblo de Dios en camino.
También Son grandes hombres y mujeres que consagran su vida y llevan adelante el mensaje de Jesús.
La Iglesia y el mundo necesitan de este testimonio del amor y de la misericordia de Dios.
Es necesario rezar para que tantos jóvenes respondan “sí” al Señor que los llama a consagrase totalmente al Él.
Consagrar la vida es para servir a Dios y a los hermanos.
