CONTEMPLATIVE

CHRISTIANITY

in the Heart of West Marin

WELCOMING YOU TO
ST. COLUMBA'S INVERNESS

St. Columba's Episcopal Church and Retreat House is 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. We are an inclusive contemplative community incarnating the Mystical Body of Christ in Word, Sacrament, and spiritual intimacy.

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

~Matthew 11:28

because you think that in them you have eternal life; but it is they that testify to me.
