Welcome to St. Columbkille Parish

Saint Columbkille, the patron of our parish, was born of a noble family in Donegal, Ireland, in the year 521, and was ordained a priest and monk in 546. When he was 42 years old, he was exiled from Ireland and sent to the territory known as Scotland with 12 companions. There he spent the next 34 years establishing churches and schools, and staffing them with many disciples who were attracted by his ardent penance, fervent prayer, sincere preaching, and deep confidence in God.

Columbkille spent much time copying the Scriptures and other manuscripts and writing poems. His great book, the Book of Kells, is a work of perfection with no peer in the world of ancient calligraphy. Columbkille died in 597 and is honored as the Patron of Scotland.

Archbish Edward F. Hoban canonically erected St. Columbkille Parish on June 7, 1956. Currently, our parish numbers about 4,900 families.

Mission Statement

We, the Roman Catholic community of Saint Columbkille Parish, founded in 1956 and situated in the Diocese of Cleveland, Ohio having been fed and nourished by Word and Eucharist, are committed to our Baptismal call to holiness.

Guided by the Holy Spirit, we strive to live in accordance with the words and actions of Jesus Christ through liturgical prayer, outreach, spiritual formation, academic education, and celebration. Our community acknowledges and affirms the diversity of gifts shared by its members, and challenges one another as a people of God to stewardship of time, talent, and treasure. In this way, we give praise and glory to our God.

"He is Lord"

"He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." (John 1:10-13) ++

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25-26) ++

Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead?" (Luke 24:1-5) ++

"I am with you always, to the close of the age." (Jesus in Matthew 28:20) ++

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end." (Jesus in Revelation 22:13) ++
