Welcome to the website for St. Columba Catholic Church, serving all of Houston and part of Henry counties in Southeast Alabama.
We are best as members of the Church when we invite and welcome people who are entering through our doors. We strive to extend to all who join us for Liturgy, the warmth, the love and the joy of Jesus Christ. At St. Columba visitors are always welcome but especially when they join us for our most Sacred act of Worship each week – Sunday Mass – from various parts of the United States. Of course we are saddened when the inevitable happens and families have to move out of the area. We hope they take with them a deeper appreciation of the Catholic Faith and renewed enthusiasm to encounter Jesus Christ more deeply as His missionary disciples.
The website is, in a sense, a door to the Catholic Church in Southeast Alabama. I hope you browse through it. Some ministry, event, or program may excite you to look deeper at the 2000 years old treasure the Catholic Church is. Throughout history many of our ancestors have lived the Christian life heroically. They left us a spiritual legacy of the faith lived in the service of God and neighbor. All the Saints of yesterday form our “Hall of Fame” today.
As I conclude this message I ask for your prayers that the Holy Spirit will keep the flame of faith burning brightly in our hearts as disciples of Jesus Christ.
Once again, welcome to St. Columba website, and I pray God’s blessing on you.
Fr. Gallagher, Pastor.
