JJesus began speaking in the synagogue, saying: “Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.” And all spoke highly of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth. They also asked, “Isn’t this the son of Joseph?” He said to them, “Surely you will quote me this proverb, ‘Physician, cure yourself,’ and say,
‘Do here in your native place the things that we heard were done in Capernaum.’” And he said, “Amen, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own native place. Indeed, I tell you,there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah when the sky was closed for three and a half years and a severe famine spread over the entire land. It was to none of these that Elijah was sent, but only to a widow in Zarephath in the land of Sidon. Again, there were many lepers in Israel during the time of Elisha the prophet; yet not one of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.”
When the people in the synagogue heard this,they were all filled with fury. They rose up, drove him out of the town, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their town had been built,
to hurl him down headlong.But Jesus passed through the midst of them and went away.

It has been a decade since our parish updated its photo directory of its membership. The directory serves many purposes: it commemorates the people and place where you celebrated so many life events; it identifies the many faces that you see weekly but do not quite know and it reminds you that, as a St. Columba member, you belong to a loving community!
The Parish will put out a new Parish Directory. Individual and family pictures will be taken. Parishioners will receive a free 8' x 10' family portrait and a copy of the directory. Please click here to schedule a photo session (January 23-24 and February 6-7) and for other information.
