St. Columban - Pray for us....

Did you know that this year we are celebrating one saint each week? This is a great chance for you to talk with your child about the tradition of saints in our church. The student council works hard each week to make practical connections between the life of the saint and how we live our own lives.

On the last Friday of the month students from different grades will dress as the saints and review for us what we have learned. I hope you can join us for this special activity.

The first review will be done at morning assembly on Sept. 28th by students from grades 3, 4, and 5.

The saints for the start of the year are:

  • August
    • Saint Columban
  • September
    • Saint Jerome
    • Saint Gabriel the Archangel
    • Saint Teresa of Calcutta
    • Saint Vincent de Paul
School/Parish Mass
All families should attend
5 PM Mass on Saturday September 29th
Msgr. Tuan has asked all families to attend to celebrate the start of the school year. Students are to wear formal uniform.
Mark Your Calendar for the Living Rosary - Oct. 10th
Wednesday October 10th at 6:30 PM

In October, in a special way, we remember Mary both as Mother of God and as our mother.

As a whole school community we come together to pray and to celebrate a living rosary that surrounds all of us in our Mother’s love and draws us closer to her Son Jesus.

There is wonderful grace and power in a whole community gathered in prayer!
