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,
It’s no secret that Planned Parenthood has been a major opponent of the Catholic Church especially in the area of abortion.  Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, herself a proponent of population control.  Sanger believed that the US should “keep the doors of immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feebleminded, idiots, morons, insane, syphilitic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes.” – A Plan for Peace, Birth Control Review, April 1932, p 107-108.  This is not a debate regarding immigration this is part of the vision, popular in those days and especially in Germany, of a “master race.”  Read More

Please Join us on Sunday August 9th 2015 at 5:15 pm as Bishop Vann installs Rev. Alfred Baca as 5th Pastor of Saint Columban Catholic Church.  There will be a reception in Murphy Hall following the Mass.  We hope you can come join us for this amazing Rite.

             

 

 

EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION

All Parish EMHCs are invited to meet with our Pastor and Clergy on August 24, 2015 to share some adjustments to the process of distributing Holy Communion, ask/answer questions, and most importantly spend time in reflection, prayer, and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The meeting time is 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm in the Church. All EMHCs, whether from the Spanish, Vietnamese or English-speaking cultures are strongly encouraged to attend. Offer a ride to someone who needs it, if necessary. Thank you.

Do you feel stressed out and anxious?  Do you get easily overwhelmed with problems at work or home?  Fr. Al, our new pastor, will be offering a 4-week morning series (Aug. 7,14,21,28) on Overcoming Anxiety and Conflict through Scripture and Prayer.  Please sign-up in the Front Office with a contact number or email and bring your Bible and something to write on.  Each class will end by 10:30 am.  No worries if you attend some but not all classes.  Catholic faith is powerful and you can learn how to prayerfully and positively engage the problems of life!  Learn how to give your stress to Jesus!
The class will begin immediately after the morning (on Friday’s) Mass in Murphy Hall.

 

A Relic of The True Cross 

 

Dear Friends,
We are blessed that parishioner Al Lee has gifted to St Columban Church a first Class Relic of the True Cross. Relics are classified in three ways: first, second and third.  A third class relic is something like cloth that has been touched to a first class relic or a second class relic.  A second class relic is for example something a saint used such as clothing, a ring or a cross used by the saint.  A first class relic is something directly associated with the events of Christ’s life (the manger, cross, etc.), or the physical remains of a saint (bone, hair, skull, a limb, etc.).  Read More.

 

 

 

Dear Friends,
You might notice some minor changes around the parish.  I hope to keep you up to date on those as we continue to care for our church and campus.  We have decided to change candle companies and will begin using Root Candles as of August 1.  We are especially pleased that Tom Ryan, company representative, is a graduate of St. Columban School. The difference you will notice is that the candle stands in front of the Sacred Heart and Perpetual Help shrines will be longer with a smaller size of candle that will allow for more candles.  Candles will now be sold at the front office

 Hello my name is Danny Truong.  I have been with Saint Columban Parish for 28 years.  I have been  involved in the Eucharistic Ministry, Cursillo, and the Marriage and Family Enrichment Program.  In October 2012, I was accepted into the Deaconate program with the Diocese of Orange and have been in the the Deaconate Discernment.  In my journey of Deaconate, besides taking classes, I've been working with serveral other ministries such as detention ministries at local prisons. I tutor homeless children with Schools on Wheels.  I help feed the poor at Saint Joseph's Church.  The deaconate discernment will take up to five years.  I have been with the program for roughly three years, still seeking God's will, I ask for your continued support and prayers throughout my journey.  With your prayers I will one day become a worthy servant to serve our community.  Thank you and God bless  you all.
