Faith Formation

Opportunities for Faith Formation 

Children's Ministry

Sunday School:
St. Columba provides faith formation for children in grades K-5 on Sunday mornings between the two Masses (10:15am-11:15am). The morning begins with community-building games, a prayer, and a song. Then, the children break up into small, age-based groups using the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies curriculum to reflect upon the Sunday Gospel, learn practical ways to apply the Gospel lesson to their lives, and look at related Catholic doctrine.

Sunday School Schedule

Family Mass:
The last Sunday of the month is a special opportunity for young families with children to participate in the 11:30am Family Mass. During this Mass, we try to present a Eucharistic Liturgy directed towards the needs of some of our younger members, with special readings and prayers, and greater opportunity for their engagement.  Please join us again on:  Apr. 29 and May 27, 2017.  After Mass, all families are encouraged to participate in a monthly potluck lunch in the parish center. 

Save the date: August 7 – 11, 2017 at St. Columba
Ages: Kindergarten – 5th grade
9am – 3pm, Mon. – Thurs. and 9am – noon on Friday
Cost:  $50  if registered and paid in full by June 1.  $60 after June 1.

Adult Faith Formation

It's Greek to Me Scripture Study

Beginning with a basic introduction to the Bible as our tool, join Fr. Kevin F. Novack, Pastor, in a weekly study of the Scriptures. Scripture Study is held Wednesdays (6:30-8:00pm) and repeated on Fridays (9:30-11:00am).

Sunday Liturgy is the heart of our week as Catholics, with the Scriptures proclaimed at that celebration meant to transform us. Fr. Kevin invites you to study and reflect together with him on those passages in preparation for Sunday. Come as your calendar permits; It’s Greek to Me will be offered throughout the year. Join together, grow in faith.

That Man is You

That Man is You! is an interactive, multimedia men’s program focused upon the development of authentic male leadership. Over the course of three years, That Man is You! successively considers men in their relationship to God, to their spouse and to their children.

The program content harmonizes current social and medical science with the teachings of the Church and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of man fully alive.

That Man is You! is successful at attracting large numbers of men, including younger men still actively parenting, and then transforming their spiritual lives. Indeed, independent research from a Faith Advisor to The Gallup Poll reveals That Man is You! to be one of the most life transforming programs ever studied.
