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.


Welcome Fr. Christopher Heath

Father Christopher Heath is the oldest son of Ned (+ 2021) and Bonnie Heath (+2018), both of Michigan. He was born in Cincinnati, OH, in 1961 and has lived in Southern California since 1962. 
His home parish is Holy Family in Orange (formerly the Cathedral church). He attended public school through 10th grade, and was graduated from Our Lady Queen of Angels Seminary High School in San Fernando (now Bishop Alemany High School) in 1979. He attended St. John’s Seminary College and Major Seminary in Camarillo, CA, and was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Orange on October 1, 1988 by Bishop Norman MacFarland. 
Fr. Heath has served in several parishes as a Parochial Vicar: Our Lady Queen of Angels, St. Kilian, St. Cecilia, Our Lady of Fatima, and St. Edward the Confessor. 
Fr. Heath was Pastor of La Purisima Church in Orange, and most recently St. Hedwig Church in Los Alamitos. 
Fr. Heath is now the Director of the Archives of the Diocese of Orange. He is in residence at St. Columban Church where he will assist with Mass and Confessions as his schedule permits. 
Fr. Heath has been a law enforcement chaplain for several agencies, and is currently the Catholic chaplain of the Chargers football team. He likes preaching and teaching, saying Mass and hearing Confessions, reading and writing, and good food and drink. 
I am grateful to Msgr. Pham for giving me a place to stay, and look forward to helping the priests at St. Columban to fulfill their mission of bringing the faithful closer to Christ!

A Message From Sr. Brid on the PIN program at Saint Columban
Many have been asking me about our PIN program, (Persons In Need) that we operated across the street at the White House and what we are doing now to help during the Pandemic, so I thought I’d provide an update in our bulletin.  For those of you not familiar with this important program let me summarize it:  READ MORE
