SAINT COLUMBKILLE COMMUNITY PARK
After Mass, take a stroll through the Saint Columbkille Community Park in front of the school. The park was built in the spring of this year and includes several pavers that parishioners old and new have purchased, along with memorial benches, remembrance trees, a wooden bridge, a statue of our patron saint, Saint Columbkille, along with a granite Celtic cross.
The Saint Columbkille fifty-plus club offers parishioners, 50 years young and beyond, the opportunities to gather for social and spiritual activities, to develop friendships, and to foster the spirit of a parish family. Luncheon meetings are planned twice a month with guest speakers and a Liturgy offered twice a year. Social activities include Bingo, card playing, a picnic in July, a Christmas party, and numerous trips scheduled throughout the year. Annual dues are five dollars.

The primary purpose of the Holy Name Society is to support the welfare of the parish and to promote the Holy Name of Jesus Christ.
