St. Columba's Mothers' Group is a community of women who seek to strengthen our faith by sharing our experiences as mothers. We meet in fellowship to discuss the realities of motherhood–the challenges and blessings–and to hear from guest speakers on topics such as spirituality, the practice of faith, parenting and work/life balance.
Mothers of all ages are welcome! Join us for coffee, snacks and fellowship as we get to know each other better and talk about the joys and challenges of motherhood. We meet weekly (during the program year) on Wednesdays at 10 am in Rm 203 for coffee, snacks and fellowship; free child care is offered down the hall from 10-11:30 am in Rm 220. Contact: Susan Higgins
