SCS Happenings
World war II Jeep Visits SCS
Continuing activities during the Discover Catholic Schools week at St. Columba: Students celebrated Veterans Day with a visit by a World War II armored jeep. The students were given a tour of the jeep and the important role it played for our soldiers during the war. This particular jeep had field modifications made by the men for extra protection. They added armor and dual bazookas. Students then were allowed to get inside and climb about the jeep.

Magical Revelations with Father Leo
Father Leo Goodman's Magical Revelations show was a big hit with the students. He combined stories from the Bible and magic to create delightful illusions from bending a quarter to levitating a student. His tricks were amazing but they also taught a lesson about God's love for us all.

St. Columba is Presented
During our celebration of Discover Catholic Schools week, our school hosted a special Family Thanksgiving Mass where all families came to sit with their children to celebrate this special student mass. At the end of mass, the school presented Father Mowery, our pastor, with a portrait of St. Columba. Father did not have a picture of St. Columba as of yet, and the student body thought he needed one for his office. Pictured here from left to right are Father Mowery, Cameron Boyle, Scarlett Boyle and our principal Mrs. Howe.

Prayer of St. Columba

Be a bright flame before me, Oh God, a guiding star above me. Be a smooth path below me, a kindly shepherd behind me today, tonight and for ever. Alone with none but you, my God I journey on my way; what need I fear when you are near, O Lord of night and day? More secure am I within your hand than if a multitude did round me stand.
