Saint Columba Catholic Church Community Connection Committee, Established October, 2013

“In the spirit of giving back to our community, our mission is to help those in need and to help those whose mission is to enhance the lives of others. In doing so, we are sharing some of our blessings to help bless others.”
The purpose of this committee is to act in a careful manner and be prayerful stewards of the Sunday offertory of our Parishioners. Our committee will allocate the tithe of our Parish prudently, looking for those opportunities that will have the greatest and longest lasting benefit.
As we witness the resources available through being grateful and generous givers, we have become excited about what God can accomplish through us.
Is there a charity that has touched you or someone you know? Do you know of a local, smaller charity that helps the poor or distressed in a special way?
“God’s Work is accomplished on Earth through the tithes and offerings of God’s people.”
