FFC Subcommittee-Spiritual Growth

GOAL: To deepen parishioners’ spiritual lives, and equip our spiritual gifts for evangelization!

This committee promotes opportunities for the spiritual growth and development of parish members. The committee’s functions include: identifying the spiritual growth needs of all parish members; providing opportunities for spiritual growth through retreats, days of renewal, small group study, and prayer groups; and evaluating spiritual growth programs available in the Archdiocese to determine potential for renewal at St. Columbkille Parish.



1) Strengthening programs for on-going education in the faith

2) Enhancing the Sunday assembly for Holy Mass

3) Teaching stewardship as a way of life

4) Promoting vocations in general, and priesthood in particular
