We're blessed by your abiding connections.

We're blessed by your sustaining contributions.

We're blessed by your stories, prayers, and praises.

Welcome Our New Assisting Priest

Welcome Our New Assisting Priest Mother Melanie Rowell!

       We are so excited to welcome Mother Melanie Rowell to St. Columba's as an assisting priest!  Mother Melanie was ordained to the priesthood this past June and is a full-time chaplain at Holy Innocents School in Atlanta.

       Given her schedule at Holy Innocents, Mother Melanie will be with us most Sundays as an assisting priest, taking part in the rota of preaching and celebrating. As an assisting priest, she is a "volunteer" at St. Columba's and will be a tremendous help to us on those Sundays and weekday Feasts when her schedule allows her to be with us.

       We are indeed very blessed to have Mother Melanie, along with Deacon Ed, Jerry Adams, and our new group of parishioners serving as sub-deacons. Please join in welcoming Mother Melanie to St. Columba's beginning this September.
