The Columbiettes are an adult Catholic women's organization who are dedicated to their faith, family, friends, parish and community. We are an Auxiliary of the parish's Knights of Columbus Council. Working closely with the Knights, the Columbiettes enjoy the challenges and satisfaction of making a difference. We can do more for our church, family and community as a Columbiette. We become a more effective Catholic by actively working toward goals of unity and understanding. We establish these examples through works of charity, devotion and promotion of our Catholic faith and values. We have fun and make new friends and join others in events that bear fruit. We can and DO make a difference to our church, our families and to the young people of our parish. Our Patronesses are the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Theresa the Little Flower, and Saint Joan of Arc.
