Greetings from St. Columban Catholic Church

All children (grades K-8) who are not attending Bishop Hogan are strongly encouraged to attend CCD as a primary aspect of learning their Catholic faith. There is no charge for CCD.

CCD REGISTRATION 2019-2020 - Religion classes for children of the parish not able to attend Bishop Hogan Memorial School will begin on Sunday, September 15, 2019, at 11:00 am in the school. Registration sheets are located on the table in the back of church. Please register your children and return the forms to the church office or place in the marked basket on the table. We need a parent volunteer for the 1st & 2nd grade teacher and another for a substitute. Volunteers must attend the Protecting God's Children class on September 4. Contact the rectory if you would like to be a CCD teacher.


Congratulations to Simon Pfaff on his first communion received at the 5pm mass on July 6, 2019!
