SCS Happenings

As part of St. Columba School's commitment to service, Mr. Bidleman's 7th grade religion class and 8th grade are landscaping the front of their school. This service project included donations from the community from businesses like Home Depot. The class ripped all the weeds and dead plants out, scrubbed the Mary statue clean, and also prepared the area for new plants and mulch. Here Elise Ferdock, Emily LaRouche, Jacob Guerriero, and Caden Hopper clean out one of the beds.

Prayer of St. Columba

Be a bright flame before me, Oh God, a guiding star above me. Be a smooth path below me, a kindly shepherd behind me today, tonight and for ever. Alone with none but you, my God I journey on my way; what need I fear when you are near, O Lord of night and day? More secure am I within your hand than if a multitude did round me stand.
