Ash Wednesday

February 18, 2015

7:00 am, 12:00 noon, & 7:00 pm


"I invite you, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent"

      With these words Ash Wednesday begins the forty-day season of Lent.  It is marked by special prayers, fasting, acts of devotion, and special liturgies.  We will offer three liturgies on Ash Wednesday.  At 7:00 am there will be the Ash Wednesday Liturgy & Imposition of Ashes (but no Eucharist).  This is a short liturgy for those who are on their way to work or school and will end by 7:30 am.  At Noon there will be a quiet, said Mass with a homily and imposition of ashes.  Then at 7:00pm, a full choral Mass will be sung also with a homily and imposition of ashes.  

     This is one of the most important days of our Church year.  Please make plans to attend one of our three liturgies so that you can prepare in heart and mindfor the Lenten journey.  This spiritual journey prepares us to see the new light of the Resurrection come Easter morning.    

     Confessions will be heard on Tuesday from 12-1 pm, Wednesday following the 7 am liturgy, or by appointment (contact Father Tripp).


Shrove Tuesday

Shrove Tuesday is right around the corner which means there is a Pancake Supper to be had! Come out on February 17th from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM to enjoy a fine meal of pancakes, bacon, fruit, and of course kings cake! 

The EYC of St. Columba's will be there and will make the food, serve the food, and provide bingo entertainment and a 50/50 raffle! The proceeds to the dinner will go towards Mission Trip Harrisburg as our EYC gears up to serve with over 60 people from around the diocese in the largest youth mission trip of the summer! No registration is required. Just show up hungry and ready for a fun family evening!



EYC St. Paddy's Day Dinner and Fundraiser

Everybody is Irish on St. Patrick's Day and that means it is time for our 3rd annual EYC St. Paddy's Day Dinner and Fundraiser! In that spirit, our very own youth group is throwing a traditional Irish dinner for the entire parish. The dinner will be held on March 8th from 5:30 PM until 7:30 PM. There will be corned beef, cabbage, Irish soda bread, and potatoes - Linda and Todd Reid's famous recipe - hotdogs and other kid friendly food too.  Desserts and Irish beverages will be served by the adult leprechauns too.  

     As a special treat, the talent of our parish will be featured during a special "Guitaritas" - or offering of music by some incredible musicians and voices from our youth group and youth leaders.  It will be a night not to be missed.  All proceeds will help defray the costs for Mission Trip Harrisburg this summer; the largest mission Trip is the diocese that is hosting over 60 people! Space is limited and the cost will be $30 for adults, $15 for children under 12.  Fabulous food, a great celebration, Irish cheer, phenomenal entertainment!
