SHORT HISTORY OF ST COLUMBA'S

image4

St Columba’s parish was established in 1906 by Archbishop John Maguire to release some of the pressure from then St Joseph’s church in North Woodside Road, but opened in 1941 the year of the Clydebank and Govan blitz, during the second world war. The cost was met by the families of the area, each of whom paid 6d per brick. 

It was designed by the award-winning architect Jack Coia of Gillespie, Kidd & Coia. It also has Italian Romanesque style with an imposing west front; Sculpture of the Paschal Lamb over central door; Painted panels of the Stations of the Cross by Hugh Adam Crawford, from the Catholic Pavilion at the Glasgow Empire Exhibition 1938. In the sanctuary, a marble reredos with a carved crucifix by Benno Schotz.

Because it is such an important historical and architectural masterpiece dating before 1948, it is a listed building in the category of Grade A.

Dr John Hume, a former inspector of historic buildings in Scotland examined all the churches in Scotland and from a list of 1000, he shortlisted 184 which he considers the best. The catholic churches in the city of Glasgow that he chose are St Andrew’s Cathedral in Clyde Street, and our church – St Columba’s! all his findings were published in his book: ‘SCOTLAND’S BEST CHURCHES’.

WHO ARE WE?

image5

We are a happy and vibrant Catholic community in Woodside who try to be challenged daily by the message of Jesus in the Gospels in little but practical ways. We try to be a family of devoted disciples in the Lord's garden whether that be celebrating the Sacraments, preaching his word, attending a mass, walking the talk of the Christian life, singing nice melodies and praising God together, praying behind the scenes for all in the parish, having social activities and fun events, getting inspired by each other, encouraging each other, being of service to each other and to other people, welcoming visitors, making tea, cleaning the Church, working in our beautiful garden, building the parish together or simply being there. 

Under our Lady's mantle we march on without fail, trying to be a parish where we all connect to God in our different ways - using our different talents - and from Him derive the strength to be a community of faithful, loving and active disciples after the heart of Jesus.
