The Garden Ministry is an active group of parish members who love to get out and worship God through nature. The group’s mission is to beautify the church grounds and cemetery. Our goal is to enable parishioners to enjoy our Lord’s seasonal blessings and to make St. Columbkille’s property a visual statement of our gratitude for His gifts of nature. We plan, plant and maintain gardens and landscaped areas, including the Prayer Garden. Our work is year-round, even though the fruits of our efforts are most visible during the western Pennsylvania growing season. Parishioners with gardening and landscaping skills of all levels are encouraged to participate. For more information, contact Mary Laplante at 724-695-5675 or call the rectory office.
