We want to thank the 1901 Church Board of Directors, the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Nancy Haskin, Art Hixson and Amy & Brian Reese for bringing the former St. Columba back to life through monthly donations that will enable us to pay for utility and insurance costs of operation. Thanks to these and other donations, we are reopening Columba as a "theatre in the rough," during the first quarter of 2020! Once opened, local theatre companies will have a place to rehearse, workshop and perform productions.

Steeples still rise above Cambria City because of people like you!

Government agencies and foundations are providing invaluable grants for planning and development projects. Our buildings are generating some income. But The Steeples Project couldn't continue without the generous contributions of businesses and individuals. That's how we pay for accounting fees, insurance, property taxes, contractor's fees and utilities – all of which are required to do business responsibly and effectively.

You can donate online by clicking on the submenu link. If you prefer, you can make a check payable to "1901 Church" and mail it to:
