Thanks, St. Columbans!

Thanks, St. Columbans!

The Outreach Ministry Appeal kicked off this spring with the goal to raise enough funds to close a $50,000 budget gap. Thanks to your generosity and broad participation across the entire parish, we exceeded our goal and raised $51,786. Your contributions will allow us to continue to serve in all the wonderful ways we make God's love concrete through our many outreach ministries. Thank you, St. Columbans for answering our call.

Serving in the Interim

Serving in the Interim

While we are actively engaged in filling two positions--Director of Finance & Administration, and Operations Manager--four parishioners have generously and ably stepped in to provide interim support. John Nolan, Sara Glenn and Tom Bauder are managing day-to-day operations with additional support from Heather Cole. Their expertise and support is a huge gift to St. Columba's. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
