Our Religious Education Stewards

On Tuesday we welcomed our new and returning Religious Education (RE) catechists. We have an amazing group of dedicated stewards that teach our RE classes on Monday and Wednesday evenings. THANK YOU to everyone who so generously gives of their time and talents to serve the parish and share his/her faith with our youth. Our program at St. Columbkille is an active one -- not only do our students participate in weekly class instruction, they are active in class liturgies, family events, service and preparing for the sacraments throughout the year. 

We are blessed to have all of you as part of our 2017-18 Religious Education program!

New Parish Staff Member

St. Columbkille is pleased to introduce our newest parish staff member, Tess Sousek.  Tess will be serving the parish as our Director of Communications.  This new position will help us more effectively develop our message of stewardship, based in love and a recognition that our many blessings are gifts from God that we should share with others.  Tess has a journalism degree from UNL, has been a writer for the diocesan newspaper in Lincoln and is skilled with videography and photography.  She was on the UNL Newman Center's Advisory Board and its Video/Media Chair, served with Teens Encounter Christ retreats and involved in several other groups and camps. 

We are excited for Tess to join the parish staff and think her strong faith, multimedia experience and ability to connect with others make her an invaluable addition.  Please be sure to give her a warm welcome when you see her around the campus.
