Thank you for your interest in giving financially to St. Columbkille!  We recognize the importance of stewardship by giving back of our time, talents, and lastly, our treasure.  God has blessed each of our lives abundantly.  As we have received much from Him, so we sense the importance of giving something back to Him. We express our gratitude to Our Lord by supporting our parish and its mission of bringing Christ to the homes and hearts of each of our parishioners.  The parish and school can only operate through our generosity.
