Statue Of St. Marguerite To Be Installed: On Sunday May 19, 2019 a statue of Marguerite Bourgeoys will be presented to St. Columba Church in recognition of the presence of the CND community in the parish's pastoral and school life since the mid-1940's. The Sisters and Associates of St. Columba’s extend an invitation to whomever would be able to attend the ceremony and reception.

The statue will be blessed by the Pastor, Rev. James Hauver at the end of the 12 NOON Mass at St. Columba Church at 343 West 25th Street, New York, NY. 10001. In addition, during this ceremony, representatives of the CND community will present thoughts and prayers to celebrate this occasion.

After this ceremony there will be a reception of light refreshments in the school auditorium. We would like to invite all the CND Sisters and Associates to this memorable occasion to celebrate this new presence of Marguerite in our community at St. Columba.

Earth Day 2019 - April 22nd

Protect Our Species – the Theme for Earth Day this year. It is common knowledge to anyone who cares to hear and understand that the world is facing a constant and rapid reduction of species, plant-life and animal-life. Human activity has brought about a negative impact on most living things. Birds, insects, mammals, water-dwellers and diverse forms of plant life are in a struggle against extinction. There is hope. Scientists assure us we can slow the rate of extinction of life forms if people everywhere - educators, consumers, faith leaders and followers, activists, and concerned citizens - work together on policies to protect individual species and their habitat. Earth Day urges us towards a global movement that calls on us to embrace nature and all its values.
