"Divine Mercy Sunday" at St. Columba...

Our Divine Mercy Sunday event was a real success. We had a "full house" for Hospitality in the Gathering Room. Following at 1:30pm in Church, Adoration and Benediction with the Chaplet were well attended. All in attendance were pleased with the offering.

FR. CHARLES WATKINS, PASTOR ST. COLUMBA CHURCH WASHES PARISHONERS FEET: In keeping with Scripture, on Maundy Thursday, Jesus gathered His disciples around him and much to their surprise, washed their feet, telling them in time they would understand. Replicating that, circa 2018, are parishioners of St. Columba Church in Chicago (Hegewisch) on Thursday March 29th, 2018. Pastor/Administrator Fr. Charles Watkins, pictured here at the Altar, washed the feet of Carolyn Malewicki, Clara Gadzinski, John Chengary, Sue Ellen and others while being assisted by Ron Segvich and Kyle Cruz. This is one of he holiest days of the Catholic Christian calendar along with the Easter Vigil, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018.

"On Palm Sunday, we remember Jesus' entry into Jerasulem for the last time as we wave palm branches in His honor. It is also a time for hearing the reading of the Passion with responses we can make to be a part. It is the start of Holy Week and all the beauty and wonder that will transpire. We encourage and invite you to join us in this journey!"
