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 2018-2019 - Religious Education Classes for children not attending Bishop Hogan Memorial School will be offered by the parish and will begin on Sunday, September 9, after the 10:00am Mass and dismiss at noon. Classes are held in the Bishop Hogan classrooms. Registration forms are located on the table in the back of church and also on the table next to the north door. Please fill out one for each child attending and return by mail to the church office, 1111 Trenton St. or drop in the collection basket at Mass. Melanie Warren is coordinating the CCD program this year and is being assisted by the following teachers: Janet Webb, K-2gr; Melanie Warren, 3-5gr; Joe Timmons, 6-8gr and Rochelle Koehly, First Communion prep. A big thank you to Melanie and the volunteer CCD teachers.
