Welcome To Saint Columban Catholic Church!



Saint Columban Church as part of the Diocese of Orange is a sacramental, multicultural church, united through prayer, faith sharing and action.

Our parishioners strive to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and the expression of His love and grace. Using our gifts of time, talent and treasure, we endeavor to meet the needs of all with special sensitivity to the poor.



Meet Our New Pastor

Dear Friends,
I'm taking this opportunity to share a few thoughts with you as I near the time of arrival to Saint Columban.  Thanks to Father Juan who has been very gracious with me during this time of transition and very encouraging of me.  I would also like to thank the Saint Columban Pastoral Staff that have reached out to me and have already made me feel so welcome.
