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.  We begin on Sept. 17, 2017.  Registration forms available in the parish office.  

Sunday School Schedule 2017-2018

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:  Sept. 24 and Oct. 29 2017.  After Mass, all families are encouraged to participate in a monthly potluck lunch in the parish center.

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.
