Get involved in one of our many Ministries

Small groups are the backbone of any great Church, and St. Columbkille is no different. Part of practicing our faith is being stewards of the gifts and resources we’ve been given to serve others and carry the message of Christ.

Deep down, we believe that the whole point of our faith & Church, is to help our people get closer to Christ, overcome spiritual sickness in every form, and in turn, help others on the Path to leading lives of love and service. Ministries are how we do this.

Our Groups & Meetings

Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.
-Proberbs 27:17

People need people. In our men’s and women’s groups, we challenge each other to be better…. just better examples of Christians & Catholics.  No single pastor or priest is able to minister to thousands, and so our Groups and Meetings serve as the most effective venue for spiritual healing and growth.

If you need help in any area listed to the right, reach out and we will confidentially connect you with someone that can empathize with your situation. Rebirth is possible for anyone. No one is lost forever.

“Most of us were taught that God would love us if and when we change. In fact, God loves you so that you can change. What empowers change, what makes you desirous of change is the experience of love. It is that inherent experience of love that becomes the engine of change.”

Richard R.Author, Speaker

"What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like."

St. AugustineSinner & Saint

"The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people."

G.K. ChestertonAuthor & Great Thinker

"Even today we raise our hand against our brother... We have perfected our weapons, our conscience has fallen asleep, and we have sharpened our ideas to justify ourselves as if it were normal we continue to sow destruction, pain, death. Violence and war lead only to death."

Pope FrancisPope & Philosopher

Our Faith is bigger than any one of us. It is universal. It is eternal.

The Church is not without fault – as it is managed and overseen by people – fallible people. Our faith, however, is more than a set of rules. It is a mystery which God continues to reveal to us and through us. Our job, and the job of every Parish, is to give people opportunities and wisdom to get one closer to Christ (and being Christ-like).

You’re never perfect… but you can be a saint! Join us on our journey to live in alignment with God’s will!

We never stop growing in our faith.
