Faith Formation

"Not all of us can do great things.
But we can do small things
with great love."  
-Saint Mother TeresaO

Religious education for youth is available for children (Grades 1-5) and teens (Grades 6-12) of registered parishioners of both Saint Columban Parish and Saint Peter Mission.

Parents and legal guardians may register their children by calling the Faith Formation office  during office hours.

Formation Opportunities for Adults

Throughout the year, St. Columban provides several ways for youth and adults alike to learn about the love, compassion, forgiveness, generosity, and justice of Jesus and to prepare for and receive the sacraments. Periodically, we also feature classes concerning personal and community issues.

Special experiences we have hosted in the past:

  • Healing Through Forgiveness A retreat with with Ron Ryan
  • Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace University”
  • Dr. Tom Curran marriage presentation
  • Personal stories of stewardship during mass
