Welcome to the website of St Columba’s Parish!

We extend the warmest of welcomes to Fr. Jonathan as he becomes our Parish Priest. We hope he will be happy and fulfilled in his new ministry. We welcome also to St. Theresa’s, Blacon, Fr. Isidore Madueke, who is to assist Fr. Jonathan for 12 months from February 2016 in the work of bringing the two parishes together as one. With the parishioners of St. Theresa’s, may we assure them both of our prayers and support for their task.
