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,
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."
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we invite you to our Virtual Chapel where we continue to gather throughout the
week in love and prayer.
We are currently closed due to Covid-19 restrictions. We pray for your safety and well-being.
ABOUT OUR RETREAT HOUSE
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.
"You search the scriptures
because you think that in them you have eternal life;
but it is they that testify to me"
In our continuing efforts to become antiracist, St. Columba's will be hosting a Sacred Ground dialogue circle. As described on the Episcopal Church's website, Sacred Ground is a film and readings based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith.
Sacred Ground Dialogue Circle
FROM ACEDIA TO APATHEIA
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.
