We are a Catholic faith community that seeks to place God first, to know him, and to grow in holiness together. We strive to live the Gospel through the Eucharist, in our teaching, and way of life.
The Roman Catholic Church in our area gathers together at both St. Columban Parish in Yelm and St. Peter Mission in Tenino to minister to the communities of McKenna, Nisqually, Rainier, Roy, Tenino, and Yelm in southeast Thurston and southwest Pierce counties. We are a parish of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle.
Our community has grown since its origins at the former St. Margaret Mary Church in McKenna. Our current church is named for the Irish-born 6th century missionary to Europe Saint Columbanus.
