CONTEMPLATIVE CHRISTIANITY

in the Heart of West Marin

"Stand at the crossroads and look,
 where the good way lies.
Walk in it and find rest for your souls."
 and ask for the ancient paths,

~ Jeremiah 6:16

WELCOMING YOU TO ST. COLUMBA'S INVERNESS

St. Columba's is an Episcopal Church and Retreat House revitalizing its roots in the contemplative spirituality of the Celtic Christian Tradition. Nestled on a mountainside overlooking Tomales Bay in Inverness, California, our retreat house is infused with the sacred presence of God in nature.

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

~ Matthew 11:28

ABOUT OUR CHURCH

We are an inclusive community open to all who seek companions along the journey of faith in Christ. Join us Sundays at 10:00 am for the celebration of the Eucharist.

ABOUT OUR RETREAT HOUSE

Our retreat house is open to groups and individuals seeking contemplative solitude and spiritual nourishment in the beautiful environs of West Marin.

ABOUT OUR VICAR

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

With Gratitude to Our Fire Crews

In the midst of the Woodward Fire, St. Columba’s Inverness sends gratitude to all pilots and firefighters keeping us safe. As we continue to hold the light of Christ in the world please join us in holding them in prayer. May the love of God, the peace of Christ, and the gentle protection of the Holy Spirit descend upon you all now and always.

“In the shadow of your wings I take refuge, until the destruction is past.”

~ Psalm 57:1

In this time of global pandemic,

St. Columba’s continues to find new

and creative ways to serve the people of West Marin and beyond. Support from our local, national, and international members remains vital as our Retreat House remains closed for the foreseeable future. We invite you to share with us your needs and the ways we might best serve you, even as you consider how you might support us with the gifts of your time, talent, or treasure.

FEAST OF ST. FRANCIS
In this online retreat we will attempt to listen to the dream, to be with its images. We will attempt to intuit and discern the multiple meanings of the dream, to learn how God might be reaching us and what God might be telling us.

Contemplating Christ

The Gospels and the Interior Life

The incarnation has made mystics of us all. What if we read the gospels as if that were true? In his book Contemplating Christ, Fr. Vincent Pizzuto, offers an exploration of the interior life for modern contemplatives that is as beautiful as it is compelling. With an emphasis on the gospels and Christian mystical tradition, his book explores ancient themes in new and surprising ways. Drawing on his rich experience as an academic and priest, Pizzuto gradually unfolds the Christian mystery of deification to which the whole of biblical revelation and the Christian contemplative life are ordered: through the incarnation, we have all been made"other Christs" in the world.
