CONTEMPLATIVE

CHRISTIANITY

in the Heart of West Marin

WELCOMING YOU TO
ST. COLUMBA'S INVERNESS

We are an inclusive contemplative community incarnating the

Mystical Body of Christ in Word, Sacrament, and spiritual intimacy.

"A spiritual truth to which our culture and society have so successfully numbed us is that the contemplative life is not a luxury or a quaint pastime but a matter of grave spiritual, social, and now even planetary urgency. Contemplatives know this intuitively. The prayer of silence that confronts the tyranny of the false self and opens us to the transforming power of the Spirit is a moral imperative."

~Fr. Vincent Pizzuto, Contemplating Christ, 90.

ABOUT OUR VICAR

Father Vincent has brought to our community a contemplative spirit and academic rigor promoting openness and hospitality in the Celtic Christian Tradition.

Come to me, all you that are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest.

~Matthew 11:28

You search the scriptures

because you think that in them you have eternal life;

but it is they that testify to me.

~John 5:39
