St. Columbanus Parish is a vibrant faith community committed to the proclamation of God’s Holy Word through our words and actions.  Rooted in our African American heritage, we celebrate God’s presence in our lives in ways that are “Authentically Black and Truly Catholic.”

As baptized believers, living as disciples of Jesus Christ, our mission is to:

To evangelize the message of Jesus by living and sharing the examples given us through Scripture;

To build the Kingdom of God through prayer, worship, social action and education; and

To be an inclusive, welcoming, and loving community.

If you'd like to be a part or our "inclusive, welcoming, and loving community" membership applications are available in the Church (be sure to ask an Usher) and also in the Rectory.
