From the Parish Priest
I am pleased to have this opportunity to greet you all and welcome you to St. Columba's!
We are fortunate to have on the corner of Forrest and York Streets the original church school building. This red brick building speaks to us over the last hundred years of the relationship between Parish and school. St. Columba's School exists to impart socialisation and know-how to your child in a very caring, supportive environment. A Catholic school exists to impart the complimentary value of know-why. Why did God make me? To what purpose? What is God asking of me now? To your child, the Catholic school is saying you belong to the wider family of the Church.
One of the visual aspects of our partnership between school and Parish is the beautiful church of St. Columba, a thing of beauty, inviting all who come to lift up minds and hearts to God. As Christians, we can be thankful that our God has made himself known in his Son, Jesus. In Baptism, Jesus calls us into his Church, the gathering of God's people and makes us members of his spiritual body. Jesus died to save us from sin, but he left us a great gift, the Eucharist, which nourishes us. Jesus was raised from the dead to give us new life, God's life, and he sends us his Spirit, so that we can live life to the full.
