I was traveling on business through Columbia and stopped here because it was the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Unfortunately the main church is undergoing renovations, so we held mass in the rec hall next door. This parish is filled with beautiful people who...More

My son attended school here for many years. So although I am not catholic, I had the pleasure of worshiping here many times. It is a beautiful church with a very diverse congregation. Beautiful sounding pipe organ and lovely gardens.
