Church's Dove: In our church Columb means 'dove' in Gaelic and kille is 'church,' so Columbkille came to be known as the 'church's dove.'

Fr. Dave ReesonFarewell from Fr. Vogel

(June 25-26, 2016)

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

It has been a wonderful five years of being your priest. A priest’s first parish has a special place in his heart. I have learned so much from you, from Fr. Damian especially, Fr. Steve and Fr. Dave – from our deacons, parish and school staff, married couples, widows, single adults, young people and children. I thank you so much for opening your parish and your lives to me. It has been my desire to try to follow St. Paul in a passage I reflected on in the seminary before coming to St. Columbkille Parish:

“When I came to you, brothers, proclaiming the mystery of God, I did not come with sublimity of words or of wisdom. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified. I came to you in weakness and fear and much trembling, and my message and my proclamation were not with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of spirit and power, so that your faith might rest not on human wisdom but on the power of God” (1 Corinthians 2:1-5).

In so far as I have been but a small instrument in helping you encounter Christ, I rejoice and thank God. For those moments I have come short, inadvertently or unknowingly caused harm, I ask your forgiveness. 

It is the great privilege of the priest to be able to be a part of your lives, especially at so many important moments of your family. I have helped you bury the dead through over 80 funerals, but also worked with couples for 40 weddings, baptizing three of their children out of 104 baptisms; comforting the sick through countless anointings, bringing the Father’s mercy again and again through reconciliation, assisting in the preparation of those to receive the Holy Spirit in Confirmation, and being the conduit through which Christ has fed your souls with his daily bread, the Eucharist, in the Sacrifice of the Mass.   read more...
