Welcome To Saint Columban Catholic Church!


Saint Columban Church as part of the Diocese of Orange is a sacramental, multicultural community, united through prayer, faith sharing and action.

Our parishioners strive to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and the expression of His love and grace. Using our gifts of time, talent and treasure, we endeavor to meet the needs of all with special sensitivity to the poor.



A Message From Our Pastor

Dear Friends,
I think one of the beautiful things people appreciate about the Catholic Church is our reverence for the sacred.  How we celebrate the Mass, our processions, our devotion to Mary and the saints have a profound effect on people.   One could say that the Catholic Faith has its own distinct culture, language, and way of doing things; of being.

 Dear Parishioners,


Monsignor Murphy obtained the very best for our new church that was built in 1966.  In some cases, like the tower bell, he was able to acquire things for free!  
We certainly are the fortunate inheritors of his beautiful dream. 
Thanks to him and so many dedicated parishioners of the time, we have a lovely house of God where we pray, meet and engage God.       READ MORE
