WELCOMING YOU TO ST. COLUMBA'S INVERNESS

St. Columba's is an 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

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.

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.
