Go and Make Disciples

The mission of St. Columbkille Parish is to fulfill the command of Jesus Christ prior to his ascension into heaven, “Go and make disciples.” While that is the mission of the entire parish it is also the mission of each member of the parish. Living out the gospel of Jesus Christ transforms our own lives and moves the world closer to the Kingdom of God. The expectations listed below are for our parishioners. Certainly, more discipleship can be lived than what is listed and we encourage our parishioners to do so, but the list gives each of us a starting point.


Here at St. Columbkille, we are striving to embrace Stewardship as a way of life, centering around the four pillars of stewardship: hospitality, prayer, formation, and service.

Pillars of Stewardship

Our Expectations
